Brunell Family Children's Neurodiagnostic Center
The Brunell Family Children's Neurodiagnostic Center has five neurophysiology beds and digital EEG equipment for monitoring children who have epilepsy and other seizure disorders. More than 1,000 local children have been diagnosed as having seizure disorders, and many of those children have been treated or diagnosed at Wolfsons.

Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit
The Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health Unit (nine beds) focuses on developing patient and family strengths, offering a full continuum of psychiatric and psychological care for children ages 6 - 17. Access to all medical specialties allows the provision of a wide range of behavioral disorders in a warm and nurturing environment of safety.

Ear and Hearing Center
Undetected hearing difficulties can stunt the growth of a child's communication abilities, and all newborns at Wolfson Children's Hospital receive hearing tests. Our partnership with Nemours Children's Clinic allows patients to take advantage of the services that the Nemours Ear and Hearing Center provides. The center has advanced programmable hearing-aid services, and counseling and therapeutic intervention are available to help hearing-impaired children maximize benefit from their hearing aids or cochlear implants.

Level II & III Newborn Intensive Care Unit
The 48 bed, $6 million Level II & III Intensive Care Unit for critically ill newborns is nearly twice its previous size with the same number of beds. Additional space, advanced technology and trained health care professional join with the expanded parent area to provide warmth, intimacy and extraordinary care for these tiniest of patients.

Northeast Florida Pediatric Diabetes Center
Wolfson Children's Hospital focuses on educating the diabetic or pre-diabetic (showing signs of elevated blood glucose levels on yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes) patient and his or her family. During the hospital stay, instruction of skills such as blood sugar testing, administering insulin shots and meal planning allow the child to be safely cared for at home, the goal being eventual patient self-management. Help is available for in-patients and out-patients.

Pediatric Cardiovascular Center
A joint venture with the University of Florida includes diagnosis and treatment of infants, children and young adults with congenital and acquired heart disease. Interventional cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology (EP) are used to correct many forms of congenital heart disease without surgery.

Pediatric Sleep Disorders Center
The Pediatric Sleep Disorders Center (four beds) profiles and treats children who have sleep-related problems for various sleep disorders such as night terrors, sleepwalking, sleep apnea, seizure disorders and bed-wetting.
