From Armando Llechu, Chief Administrative Officer
Welcome to our third issue of Kids First magazine, Golisano Children’s Hospital’s publication dedicated to the health and well-being of the children of Southwest Florida. Our passion and charge extend well beyond the walls of the hospital or our outpatient and physician practices and into the community.
That charge is to ensure that the children of Southwest Florida are given the opportunity to live the healthiest lives possible. We live this mission by creating access to world-class care and welltrained physicians who live and work in our community, and by providing educational avenues such as this publication so that parents and caregivers are equipped with the latest and most relevant information available.
Our hospital, our clinics and this publication would not be possible without the support of the Southwest Florida community. We are grateful to our local partners, supporters and all who have believed in us from our inception in 1994. Please accept this publication as part of our thank you.
