ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Only open since late October, the Nemours Children's Hospital at Lake Nona Medical City received some special visitors Friday as the UCF football team toured the brand-new facility, met with patients, took pictures and signed autographs for local children.

Nemours is a 630,000 square-foot children's hospital that features 95 beds with televisions, internet, Skype and GetWellNetwork for education. There also are 13 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit beds and 10 Pediatric Intensive Care Unit beds.

All 20 seniors on the UCF football team earned the opportunity to be guests in the hospital. Check out the photo gallery link below, while there also will be video and interviews on UCFAthletics.com at a later date.
