Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida (Healthcare Network) is a private not-for-profit organization providing primary medical and dental care to our community since 1977. Founded by community leaders in Immokalee, the Healthcare Network has grown to 13 locations throughout Collier County, including the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®. In 2010 and 2011, the Healthcare Network cared for an average of 45,000 patients, 32,000 of whom were children, for a total of over 169,000 patient visits. The Healthcare Network has four main service areas: Children’s Care, Family Care, Women’s Care and Dental Care.
The Healthcare Network welcomes all patients—insured or uninsured—and provides the same high quality standard of care to all. As more physicians choose not to accept Medicaid or uninsured patients, the Healthcare Network cares for those patients, offering an alternative to the more expensive and often inappropriate emergency room. If more people have access to care, we all benefit from a healthier community.
