NAPLES, Fla.- Is a hospital in the future for eastern Collier County?
There are plans to build a new healthcare facility that would serve residents in Ave Maria and Immokalee.
Calah Alexander thinks a closer hospital would be a great idea. She lives in Ave Maria and recently her child accidently got into some cough medicine.
"We actually called Poison Control and they said we were so far we needed to call an ambulance."
Her son is fine today, but she says having a nearby hospital would be good since there are alot of kids in the neighborhood.
"Got a ton of kids around here. Alot of broken bones or allergic reactions."
