"It was the most terrifying time of our life and yet the most comforting because of the team at Golisano," said Brandy, Patient's mother. "They were right there every step of the way with more support than we could have imagined."
"She is stronger than I am,” says Adela, mother of Sarai, a Golisano patient. “I don’t know what we’d do without Golisano. We are family here. All the doctors and nurses know Sarai and all love her. They’ve done everything and more to help us.”
“The shots that I have to get are just medicine,” Ethan, Golisano Patient said. “Dorian is what helps me feel better. I don’t have to be scared for the shots because I have Dorian right next to me!”
“Having a team of dedicated professionals to answer questions and guide us during the darkest moment in our lives was amazing,” said Jen, Patient's mother.

It’s no exaggeration to say that COVID-19 has affected all of us. Wearing masks, social distancing, dealing with high amounts of stress and worry – this pandemic has drastically changed the way we live and how we approach our day-to-day activities. But one thing that hasn’t changed? The level of care and safety that children and their families receive at Golisano Children’s Hospital of SW Florida. The most important thing for parents and caregivers to know is that they shouldn’t delay care for children when they need it. Our hospital follows strict safety guidelines – it’s the very bedrock of our mission to care for you and inspire healing. And children are allowed two visitors in their rooms at all times! That means kids won’t be facing potentially scary situations without family members right beside them. Remember, children can have a variety of symptoms and conditions that require IMMEDIATE attention, so don’t put your child at risk. Our emergency room – along with the rest of our hospital—is open, safe and ready to help!
