An Update for our community on the COVID-19 Vaccination Process

The Palm Beach Health Network is currently in Phase 1 of our COVID-19 vaccination plan. This means we are vaccinating front line staff and physicians.

We have started planning for community vaccinations. We are working with our state and local leaders, and we will keep everyone informed as more vaccine doses become available and we are able to expand vaccination capability.

The most effective safety measures we can take against COVID-19 continue to be wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining a social distance.

We remind our community not to delay care. Our hospitals are open, safe and ready to care for you.

Our Response to COVID-19

Welcome to Palm Beach Children’s Hospital

In addition, we are also home to leading pediatric orthopedists. When your child is sick or injured, and you don’t know where to turn, know that you have a partner in Palm Beach Children’s Hospital.

Our mission is to provide a compassionate and understanding environment that reduces anxiety and helps your child feel comfortable about spending time at the hospital.

The Palm Beach Children’s Hospital Builds New Indoor Golf Space for Patients and Families

Mar 5, 2018

West Palm Beach, Fla. The Palm Beach Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center recently unveiled, “Little Links,” an indoor golfing area with grass vinyl flooring and wall-to-wall murals of beautiful golf courses. This new area combines the fun of an outdoor putting green with the comfort of being indoors.

 For several years, South Florida PGA golf professionals have been visiting the children’s hospital as part of the South Florida PGA Foundation’s Smiling Fore Life program. These visits help bring golf into children’s lives who may be experiencing hardship, and allows children an opportunity to forget about their challenges and enjoy a fun and new activity. To ensure safety, kids use plastic golf clubs, tennis balls and Velcro targets.

 “Aside from teaching children the game of golf, these sessions serve a much larger purpose,” said CEO Gabrielle Finley-Hazle. “Part of their healing process is to play and laugh, and activities like this help get their mind off what they’re going through. The new and improved space will hopefully create a more realistic, fun and memorable experience for our patients.”

 The Auxiliary of St. Mary’s Medical Center funded this project to help enhance the experience for the pediatric patients and their families. The Auxiliary is a not-for-profit organization run by a group of caring and dedicated volunteers who raise money to provide clothing, high school scholarship opportunities, transportation, books, toys, wheelchairs, walkers, prescription refills and other resources not readily available to patients and their families. The organization also provides emotional support through companionship, reading programs and pastoral care volunteers.
