Planting Healthy Seeds in Orangetree

A father suffering from unexplained headaches delaying getting care.

A sick 6-year-old missing school.

A senior with chronic pain without access to affordable medication.

These stories are not uncommon for the residents of Orangetree. Located in northeastern Collier County, the Orangetree community has grown over 75% in the last several years. However, Orangetree is also a healthcare desert.

The community has zero primary care providers, pediatricians, specialty physicians, and behavioral health counselors. 

Why does this matter?

Access to primary care is critical because of its role in prevention, early detection, and chronic disease management. When people do not have access to comprehensive health services, it can lead to an increased risk of hospitalization, serious illnesses, and even premature death due to missed appointments, delayed essential care, and inability to afford expensive medications.

One of the major barriers to healthcare is transportation and travel limitations. And this and other health inequities have an immediate and far-reaching impact on Southwest Florida.

Deepening Our Roots in the Community

Healthcare Network is ready to meet the needs of the people of Orangetree, breaking ground on May 21, officially signaling the start of construction for the future Orangetree Community Health Center.

This $15-million, two-story facility will provide access to comprehensive, quality healthcare to more than 41,000 Collier County residents. The 20,000-square-foot medical facility will include new equipment, advanced technology, and experienced personnel ready to provide a full spectrum of care.

So far, Healthcare Network has raised approximately $9 million with the support of state funding and donors. With your support, we can ensure everyone receives the same high-quality standard of care – regardless of income, insurance, or background because we believe healthcare is a human right.

Services at the Orangetree Health Center will include:

  • Children’s Care
  • Women’s Care
  • Family Care
  • Senior Care
  • Dental Care
  • Behavioral Health Counseling
  • Xray and Lab
  • Pharmacy

What will a new health center mean for my community? Relief. It will be a game changer for my family and so many others living in Orangetree.”

– Fabricio, Orangetree Resident

Fabricio and his family are proud to call Orangetree home and love their community.
However, with no healthcare providers in the area, his family travels to Healthcare Network’s Nichols Community Health Center for care.

Healthcare Network has earned the trust of Fabricio and others in the community because of our team’s extensive knowledge and understanding of the equally diverse patient populations we serve. We listen to our patients’ concerns, creating a safe and supportive environment where they receive quality medical care.

Your Philanthropic Support Can Help Us Bloom

Focusing on primary care, Healthcare Network has improved patient outcomes and helped keep thousands of people out of emergency rooms and hospitals, saving our community millions of dollars in healthcare costs. 

Like the orange trees that support and beautify our region, your philanthropic support will bring vital healthcare services to the people of Orangetree. And the roots we plant today will continue to strengthen and prosper, providing better care and stability to current residents and future generations.

Together, we can grow a healthier community from the ground up. Your charitable gift will help us create a thriving tomorrow for generations to come.
