Barbara Nicklaus, chairman of the board of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation is proud to announce the opening of the latest Nicklaus Outpatient Center at Miami’s Children’s Hospital. Barbara’s husband, Jack has won 73 PGA titles and 18 golf majors over his impressive career, and together they have focused their foundation on providing first class pediatric care for children. When St. Mary’s Medical Center, Tenet, and the Nicklaus Foundation joined together on our local area children’s hospital, rather than using traditional gold shovels to ceremoniously break ground on the new children’s facility, they used sand wedges!
