a golden (gate) opportunity!
When more people have access to care, we all benefit from a healthier community.
Thousands of residents in the Golden Gate community need access to basic primary healthcare. To meet this critical need for accessible, integrated, and compassionate healthcare, we are raising funds to build the Nichols Community Health Center, a 50,000 square foot primary healthcare facility in the heart of the Golden Gate community. With your help, we will meet our campaign goal of $18 million—and take advantage of a golden opportunity to vastly improve critical healthcare services to the largest underserved population in Collier County.

Who comes to Healthcare Network for treatment?
Everyone is welcome to see our providers. However, as more physicians choose not to accept Medicaid or uninsured patients, Healthcare Network also takes on the care of these individuals, offering a sensible and affordable alternative to the more expensive and often unnecessary emergency room visit.
I have insurance. Why should I give?
Community health centers save the healthcare system over $24 billion, all the while providing continuity of care in a high quality setting. Furthermore, the thousands of residents in Golden Gate community need access to basic primary health care, many of whom are our first responders and nurses, our teachers and care givers, and other service providers vital to the well-being of Collier County.
