NCH will be a world-class leader of excellence in healthcare
Excellence in every patient experience
As our guest, we extend to you a warm welcome on behalf of the Board of Trustees, the Medical Staff, Volunteers, and all NCH Healthcare System personnel. We will do everything in our power to provide friendly, professional care in a comfortable environment.
Advanced Medicine and Personalized Health Choices
The NCH Healthcare System is one of the most progressive in the country. More than just a couple of hospitals, the NCH Healthcare System is an alliance of more than 700 independent physicians and medical facilities in dozens of locations throughout Collier County and southwest Florida . Not only do we offer advanced comprehensive care, we embrace new, effective ideas in medical care and healing.
Exceptional Choices for Patients
NCH believes that good health care begins with patient choice. We know that everyone relies on his or her doctor as a guide through medical concerns. And, we know that quality care in convenient settings is important. That's why we offer a wide range of choice in services, physicians, and locations.
Naples' Most Comprehensive Care
People know the NCH Healthcare System is the only place they can be sure of getting all the care they need. Only the NCH Healthcare System offers advanced heart, cancer, obstetric, newborn, and pediatric care.
Our NCH Heart Institute offers the most progressive cardiac care in southwest Florida. We use direct infarct angioplasty, "Code Save-A-Heart", in a new way to treat heart attacks by unblocking arteries immediately.
The NCH Regional Cancer Institute provides comprehensive, patient-centered care, and hope - hope for the patient, hope for family and friends, and hope for a future when cancer is controlled, if not cured.
The NCH Healthcare System is on the cusp of delivering the most innovative medical care for stroke victims - the "Brain Attack" program, patterned after our nationally recognized Code Save-A Heart program, capitalizes on our extraordinary core competency of recognizing and quickly treating life-threatening conditions.
Outstanding Medical Care, A Progressive Approach
NCH Baker Hospital Downtown and NCH North Naples Hospital provide personalized care for over 40,500 patients a year in our two-hospital, 716 bed system. NCH's outstanding reputation is confirmed by The Joint Commission, in its award of accreditation to both NCH hospitals.
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 represents non-ownership relationships. The network’s primary goal is to help more patients gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic knowledge and expertise close to home, ensuring they need travel outside the region only when necessary.
