Ground broken in March for the Marino Campus

We are very excited to announce the commencement of the renovations. On March 19, 2013, ground was broken, and the first sounds of saws and hammers were welcome music to our ears. Due to the construction on the site, we are unable to facilitate tours at this time, but we do anticipate opening the application process in early Summer and offering tours in the Fall. We will continue to keep you posted with emails on our progress and invite you to visit our new website, which we will update regularly with exciting news and announcements. Thank you for your patience and continued support of Marino Campus – a first-of-its-kind opportunity for our young adults.

Miami Childrens Hospital Dan Marino Outpatient Center Celebrates 15 Years from 1998-2013




The Miami Children's Hospital (MCH) Dan Marino Outpatient Center celebrated 15 years of service at a fun-filled celebration on Friday, April 12. Patients and their families, guests and staff of the center were treated to guided tours of the facility, snacks, music and entertainment by stilt walkers.

The MCH Dan Marino Outpatient Center is a world renowned, integrated, neurodevelopmental center specializing in the evaluation and treatment of children with neurological conditions.  The outpatient center, developed as a partnership between the Dan Marino Foundation and Miami Children's Hospital in 1998, offers a comprehensive care program for autism and other developmental/cognitive disorders in children referred from all over the world.

Over the last 15 years, the MCH Dan Marino Outpatient Center has helped families in more ways than we ever imagined. Raising awareness and supporting children who are in need of specialized care is a passion that MCH and I both share,” said Dan Marino, Chairman of the Dan Marino Foundation.

"We are grateful for the continued support of Mr. Marino and The Dan Marino Foundation,” said Dr. Narendra M. Kini, President and CEO of Miami Children’s Hospital. “This collaboration along with a commitment to excellence has made the MCH Dan Marino Outpatient Center a regional and international care leader," he said.

The MCH Dan Marino Outpatient center also coordinates community outreach projects that include the services of specialized medical and allied healthcare professionals, educational organizations, volunteer programs and parent support organizations. The outpatient center offers a state-of-the art, fully equipped rehabilitation gym for occupational, physical, speech and language therapies as well as an on-site heated pool for aquatic therapy and swimming instruction.

Miami Children’s Hospital Dan Marino Center is located at 2900 S. Commerce Parkway in Weston.  For more information about services and hours of operation or to make an appointment, please call 954-385-MARINO (6274) or visit

Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism Event draws 20,000 to Sun Life Stadium

by Ben Volin

Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland was impressed with the crowd that amassed at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday morning, but it had nothing to do with football.

More than 20,000 people showed up to support the Dan Marino Foundation's WalkAbout Autism event, the largest crowd in the event's three-year history.  Ireland and Marino both have children afflicted with autism, and their WalkAbout has now raised more than $1.4 million in three years for Marino's foundation, which benefits autism organizations within Dade and Broward Counties.

"It's grown into something much larger than we ever expected," Ireland said Saturday morning.  "We're trying to affect this community and bring awareness and raise money for the organizations that have really helped us."
