Impact Young Lives With Children’s Services

Through generous philanthropy and community-wide support, Golisano Children’s Hospital opened its doors in 2017 with a mission to deliver vital and lifesaving care for children and families in our region. Southwest Florida continues to grow rapidly, accelerating the need for expanded and new children’s healthcare programs and services.

As the only children’s hospital in Southwest Florida, Golisano treats every child, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. Your philanthropy helps us serve families in our area, as well as fund dynamic programs and services for our youngest population, from the NICU to childhood cancer to mental health. When you support pediatric services at Lee Health, you are helping provide quality, world-class care closer to home for the children in our community.
