‘Frank DiMino Campus’ Unveiled At Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center

Great Legacy The Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center, a medical home close to home for Palm Beach County children with specialized and/or acute medical needs, is now located on the “Frank DiMino Campus” in Wellington. The new name was added to signage on the building, near the entrance and in its lobby to recognize DiMino, a 93-year-old philanthropist.

The Wellington resident made a significant contribution to the nonprofit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation, which chose the Wellington campus naming as a way to honor him for his support. The gift was one of the largest in the foundation’s history. “This will help us improve access to and delivery of high-quality pediatric care for children and families in South

Florida,” said Aurelio Fernandez III, CEO of the Memorial Healthcare System, the facility’s parent organization. “This generous donation goes a long way toward keeping our kids safe.” DiMino recently visited the Wellington campus and was met by staff carrying signs expressing appreciation. He connected with Fernandez and other Memorial Healthcare System leaders, inwellington the magazine | july 2020
