Little Red Wagon Fund

Golisano Children’s Hospital is a second home to many children and families. However, it actually serves a massive and rapidly growing seven-county region. In fact, the 134-bed hospital treats more than 30,000 young patients per year. And those numbers are expected to rise. Additionally, about 70% of pediatric patients are on Medicaid, which does not fully cover the costs associated with care. Therefore, our community needs The Little Red Wagon Fund. It will help us advance innovative programs, technologies, and services. And that’s how we provide the right care for Southwest Florida children close to home.

Kids’ Minds Matter

The children’s mental health epidemic in our country is a crisis that impacts us all. Your support has empowered Kids’ Minds Matter to make great strides in our community. However, there is still a critical shortage of providers in our community. Additionally, families struggle to pay for the services that are available. Therefore, we need your continued support of Kids’ Minds Matter. It will enable Golisano Children’s Hospital to expand services and programs as well as enhance collaborations and partnerships throughout our region.

Music Therapy  

Funded completely by philanthropy, our board-certified music therapist uses evidence-based interventions to address the cognitive, emotional, physical, social needs of children and their families. The techniques help reach medical goals like:

  • Decreasing pain
  • Improving compliance with treatment or medication
  • Improving a family’s overall experience.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

An estimated 1 in 10 babies are born prematurely. And other newborns will need specialized health care because of congenital diseases and other complications. Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida is the only Level III Regional Perinatal Intensive Care Center in our seven-county region. In fact, it’s only one of 11 in the state. It provides the highly specialized, lifesaving healthcare that newborns need. Most importantly, this care is provided close to home.
