Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida opened in 1994 as a ‘hospital-within-a-hospital’ in HealthPark Medical Center. Through the years, as the need for pediatric health care services evolved, so did the children’s hospital. Specialties, services and programs expanded, and the need for a new facility dedicated exclusively to children was apparent. Now, after years of planning, fundraising and building, the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers are preparing to open the doors of the brand-new, state-of-the-art Golisano Children’s Hospital.

From neighborhood lemonade stand proceeds and children generously emptying their piggybanks to celebrity golf tournaments and other events to major philanthropic gifts, our community has been instrumental in making America’s newest children’s hospital a reality.

You are invited to share in the excitement and explore a bright new world at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Join us between 10 a.m.-1 p.m., April 1 for a ribbon-cutting, tours and family-friendly entertainment.

We look forward to celebrating the grand opening and sharing how this major community milestone helps attract and retain impressive talent and technology to assure the continued growth and excellence that makes Golisano Children’s Hospital such a special place of hope and inspiration.
