Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital have formed a clinical affiliation aimed at optimizing care for sick or injured children in Southwest Florida. The goal is to help keep children and their families as close to home as possible while offering excellent specialized pediatric care.
There is growing demand for specialized pediatric services in Collier County.
