The Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital is the only hospital in the southeastern United States to receive the Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) designation as a National Center of Excellence for Research, Education and Treatment of food allergies. The designation comes in recognition of the hospital's dedication to evidence-based knowledge in the field of food allergies and their treatment.
JDCH becomes the 21st hospital nationally to receive the FARE designation for raising the quality of care for patients with food allergies.
Centers for excellence are FARE's best and brightest.
"The centers of excellence selected as part of the FARE Clinical Network are known to provide clinical and sub-specialty food allergy services of the highest quality and are considered leaders in applying new evidence-based knowledge," says FARE in a release. "Additionally, these centers meet optimal criteria for care, teaching and clinical research."
Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital serves the South Florida region and has been recognized as a comprehensive food allergy center providing diagnosis, treatment, education, and research. JDCH will join the FARE network of hospitals and clinics which provide an infrastructure of research for late-stage clinical trials of new food allergy treatments.
