Lee Health Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida

Fort Myers

The Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida is an expansion of the existing Hallmark hospital campus. It consists of a 294,000 square foot new Children’s Pavilion addition with an adjoining 109,000 square foot parking garage, 89,000 square foot of renovations to the existing hospital, and an 8,000 square foot expansion to the existing Central Energy Plant to support the new additions and renovations.

The six-story Children’s Pavilion features a new entry for the Children’s Hospital with education and family places, a pediatric emergency department with its own entry for children, and a total of 160 new beds (some of which are shell space for future growth). Other services include: pediatric surgical services, pediatric intensive care, pediatric acute care, hematology and oncology care, outpatient clinics, neonatal intensive care, a pharmacy, and diagnostic imaging services.

Renovation of the main facility provides greater efficiency for both the Children’s and Adult’s hospitals. These renovations include relocation and expansion of the MRI and sedation unit, as well as public connection to the new Children’s Pavilion.

The structural system for the new facility consists of a cast-in-place pan-form beam and slab floor system, concrete columns and concrete shear walls for lateral resistance, all supported by augercast pile foundations.
