History of The NCH Healthcare System Facilities
Two of the newer features of the NCH Downtown Naples Hospital campus are the Briggs Health Pavilion, which opened in November 2006, and the Garden of Hope and Courage which offers a beautiful place of respite and calm for NCH patients, caregivers, and staff and made its debut in October 2006. The Briggs Health Pavilion gives NCH a signature building on the corner of Fourth Avenue North and U.S. 41. This building contains a state-of-the-art Briggs Wellness Center along with cardiac rehabilitation, physical/occupational/speech rehabilitation and the von Arx Diabetes and Nutrition Center. NCH continues to change the face of cardiac care in Southwest Florida with the opening of The Naples Heart Institute in November 2011. The NHI team of 13 dedicated physicians and additional staff members specializes in the management of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease in one convenient location.
NCH’s North Naples Hospital campus is home today to the Jay & Patty Baker Patient Care Tower, The BirthPlace, the Robert and Mariann MacDonald SeaCAREium Pediatric Unit, and the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging and Rehabilitation.
In August 2012, the NCH Healthcare System became a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. NCH is the first member of the network in Florida and the Southeast region of the United States.
The Mayo Clinic Care Network extends Mayo Clinic’s knowledge and expertise to physicians and providers interested in working together in the best interest of their patients. NCH’s physicians will have access to Mayo Clinic, including the ability to collaborate with Mayo Clinic physicians on patient care, community health, and innovative health care delivery.
The Mayo Clinic Care Network represents non-ownership relationships. The network’s primary goal is to help people gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic expertise close to home, ensuring that patients travel outside the region only when necessary. Click to visit the NCH Healthcare Foundation
