Working at Miami Children's Health System
Wanted: Your Inner Child
We believe that every child is born with the potential to do great in the world; to leave a unique, indelible mark. And you are no exception.
Do you still view the world with wonder and excitement? Do you still treasure, nurture and trust in that childlike ability to open up your imagination and dream the impossible?
A child can see without bias and act without inhibition. A child is free to think, to create, to love and to grow. They are spontaneous and perceptive and focused on what they want.
It’s the spirit of the inner child that we are nurturing here at Miami Children’s Health System.
Of course, we are already ranked one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation. But we will look to you to challenge us to be better. We want your curiosity, tenacity and resourcefulness to find answers that others cannot, to stand up for what is right, to do what has yet to be done. To reimagine the future of healthcare and make it a reality.
At Miami Children’s, we believe that innovation is the child of creativity and invention and we foster an environment where it can be nurtured and flourish and brought to life.
So if you approach life with a fresh mind and curiosity, a belief in yourself and others, optimism, enthusiasm, excitement and hope every single day then apply now and reawaken your inner child.

What Our Employees Say…
“I think Miami Children’s Hospital is a great place to work because the employees care about each other and it feels like a family. It does not seem so much like work when you are surrounded by wonderful people that care about you. Also, our bosses understand that our personal lives are much more important than our jobs. They encourage employees to care for themselves before their work. I really feel this is a place that manages from the heart, puts people first and truly cares for the community.”
- Lizbeth, Revenue Cycle Management
“I am a ‘home-grown’ nurse, meaning I started as a care assistant, and then an LPN, then an RN, and finally I obtained my MSN, CPN, RN. Professionally moving up at Miami Children’s is not a difficult process, they are truly a Magnet Hospital which offers endless resources for structural empowerment through healthy and supportive relationships exemplified through our transformational leaders.”
- Nancy, Registered Nurse
“I think Miami Children’s is a great place to work because we have great staff and a great environment at night. And because it's a joy to help heal someone, especially a child. Just to put a smile on their face is priceless! I enjoy what I do because I love children! What a blessing.”
- Latoya, Pediatric ICU
“From the continuing medical education courses they offer to employees to the services they provide to our community, this company really goes above and beyond. I’m so happy to be a part of such a great company that provides for its community and staff.”
- Anju, Occupational Therapist
“I am especially impressed with MCHS this year for our benefits. With all the economic and legislative changes going on with healthcare in our country, MCHS sat down and though of what they can do to help employees be more aware of their health and make healthier decisions. So they took on a large health and wellness program. By participating in this program, our insurance premiums actually decreased! Most people you talk to right now are having increasing healthcare costs, especially with their annual premiums. I feel blessed to have such great healthcare coverage at an affordable price for me. Thanks MCHS!”
- Rebecca, Rehabilitation Services

“My story with Miami Children’s started back in 1998 when I was a volunteer within the Child Life Department. Volunteering in the playroom and in the units exposed me to an atmosphere of what I like to call “child’s play”. I was able to see children being children. No matter how sick they were, they would play and share a smile. I was able to witness many members of the team (from physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, rehab therapists, child life specialists) facilitate the most professional care with a smile while offering children the opportunity to be children. Now 17 years later, I am back again, only now I am on that team contributing to children having an opportunity to understand, relate and cope with their hospitalization. I am proud to be a part of Miami Children’s Health System.”
