About the Healthcare Network
The Healthcare Network delivers healthcare, including primary care, pediatrics, women’s healthcare, behavioral healthcare, and dental care, at community health centers throughout Collier County. Importantly, all patients are welcome regardless of insurance. Payment is accepted on a sliding fee scale. If you need to visit a Healthcare Network provider, please call (239) 658-3000 to schedule an appointment.
Future Ready Collier works with the Healthcare Network because much more than schoolwork helps shape a student’s future success in life. For example, physical and behavioral wellness contribute to a child’s achievements at school and at home. Trusted community partners like the Healthcare Network reach families in unique ways. Sharing information like this activity book can be meaningful to local families in need of guidance and resources.
