Building Plans


The planned expansion to the Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida (aka “America’s Newest Children’s Hospital”) will be exclusively devoted to serving the needs of children and families in our region.  Harvard Jolly, one of the leading architect firms in the country with experience designing other major children’s healthcare facilities, was hiried initially to prepare a program statement, project scope, and renderings based on feedback from patients, parents, and care providers. The goal is to ensure that whichever architect firm is selected, the new facility will be among the safest, most efficient, and most family-friendly Children’s Hospitals in the country.

Goals include:

  • Sufficient space for all children and grandchildren to be treated close to home without diversions to other children’s hospitals;
  • Accommodations for parents and caregivers to stay with their children and grandchildren 24 hours a day during critical times;
  • Enabling facilities and technology for dedicated pediatric medical staff to efficiently and cost-effectively save lives;
