Lee Memorial Health System Foundation reported it has received a pledge of $100,000 from The Wolf, Metzger & Maurillo Private Wealth Group of Wells Fargo Advisors.
Those funds will be directed to The Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida's Capital Campaign and will be acknowledged by naming a patient room within the new facility's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after the benefactors.
The new Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida will house 136 beds and many specialty services to treat the most critically ill children and their families. The facility serves children from Lee, Collier, Hendry, Charlotte and Glades Counties.
