Children are life's most precious gifts. From the loving eyes of an
infant, to the excited, wobbly first steps of a toddler… from
adolescent development to the scrapes and bruises of the teen-age
years, children require specialized healthcare. Providing that care
with the finest health services in a supportive and compassionate
setting is at the heart of everything we do at The Children's
Hospital of Southwest Florida.
The Children's Hospital Administration
We understand that the health of child is an emotional family
matter. A healthy child is a parent's greatest treasure. When health
challenges arise that may require hospitalization, or
life-threatening conditions develop that call for extended
treatment, it can be a very stressful and frightening experience for
infants, young children, adolescents and their families.
A key component of our delivery of child healthcare services is that
the involvement of parents, family members and friends serve to
enhance the healing process. That's why we take a "whole family"
approach to our treatment services.
