Pediatric Orthopedics of Southwest Florida will move its office to a newly constructed building located at 15821 Hollyfern Ct. located on the corner of Bass Road and HealthPark Circle, on the HealthPark Florida campus in South Fort Myers in early June 2006.
To celebrate the move, Doctors Brett Shannon, John Churchill and Dennis Cardone
are hosting an open house for the community on Saturday, June 17, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., to offer tours of the new freestanding building devoted solely to the orthopedic care of children and teens and The Children’s Sports Center offering a specialized focus on the care of young athletes.
Perfection on Wheels, a California-based Trick Bike team will be on hand to entertain with X-treme bike tricks on land and in the air with the help of a half pipe. These professional bikers will demonstrate bicycle safety. Bicycle helmets will be donated and fitted for the first 100 children in attendance compliments of the Children’s Advocacy Program at The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
Refreshments, food, fun, music, games, informational booths, and demonstrations will round out the activities. The public is invited to come out and enjoy the trick bike show, a bounce house, crab races, finger casts for kids, and demonstrations such as lacrosse, fencing, cheerleading and dance.
The new office of Pediatric Orthopedics of Southwest Florida features a comfortable, family-friendly waiting room, open spaces, and treatment rooms, as well as diagnostic equipment, physical therapy services, and a sports medicine center for young athletes.
“When the Nemours Clinic chose to move out of Southwest Florida, the pediatric subspecialty physicians made a commitment to stay here in our community,” said Dr. Shannon, the area’s first pediatric orthopedic surgeon. “We have more than proven the need for specialized care for children in Southwest Florida and this building is a strong sign of our commitment to serving area children from a three and four county reach.”
Pediatric Orthopedics of Southwest Florida is Southwest Florida’s only orthopedic practice devoted solely to the orthopedic treatment needs of infants, children and teens from birth to age 18. With specialized training in treating children, Doctors Shannon and Churchill are board certified and fellowship trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Shannon has been caring for children and young athletes in Southwest Florida since 1992. Dr. Dennis Cardone, board certified in family medicine and sports medicine, recently joined the practice to add a new dimension to the care of surgical and non-surgical orthopedic injuries.
The new location provides convenient access for patients and families with a close proximity to the Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and the Ronald McDonald House. The new office address is: 15821 Hollyfern Court, Fort Myers, and the telephone number remains the same, 239-432-5100.
