Deep Roots in Collier County

Healthcare Network is proud of its deep roots in Collier County, Florida… dating all the way back to 1977




Collier Health Services was founded on May 17, 1977, by community leaders in Immokalee to make quality medical care accessible to all. ​



To address the needs of the growing population, Collier Heath Services opened the Marion E. Fether Medical Center in Immokalee, which was completed in July 1993. ​Practices included adult, pediatric, women’s, and dental care as well as specialty, a practice focused chronic and infectious diseases.​

The three-year award verifies that a health care provider meets the most rigorous quality and safety standards of care for their patients and communities. Healthcare Network maintained accreditation from JCAHO from 1995 – 2007 when they switched accrediting agencies to the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
