A Center of Excellence that inspires and supports the optimal potential of our community’s children with special health care needs through care, education, research and collaboration.
The Center provides services responsive to the needs of vulnerable children which are coordinated, family-centered and offered within a culturally competent, community-based environment.
Established in 1983 as the follow-up program of the state’s Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center system, the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) has grown to be one of the largest children’s agencies in south Florida, serving over 11,000 children and youth annually. The Center’s focus has always been to provide medical care, case management, social services and other types of intervention to children and adolescents with chronic illnesses and development disabilities and to provide support and education to their families.
