About Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida

All gifts to the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign support construction of a new, state-of-the-art, 128-bed comprehensive pediatric health care facility on the grounds of Health Park Medical Center. The building—which has expansion capabilities to 160 beds—will consolidate all of the medical and ancillary specialty services required to treat critically ill or injured children from our five-county region.

B. Thomas Golisano, a resident of Naples and noted philanthropist, pledged to match dollar-for-dollar all Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida Capital Campaign contributions up to $20 million.  “This gift comes as my personal commitment to help Lee Memorial Health System build a hospital where all children in Southwest Florida will receive the best possible care close to home,” Mr. Golisano says. “I hope this gift helps leverage support from others in the region and motivates everyone to contribute in a meaningful way to this important endeavor.”
