Dr. Piedade Silva Named 2019 Prendergast Child Advocate of the Year

Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida has awarded Piedade Silva, M.D., a pediatrician with Lee Physician Group (LPG), the 2019 Prendergast Family Child Advocacy Award. This award recognizes her passion and commitment to helping and healing the children of Southwest Florida.

Recently, Dr. Silva has been instrumental in making Lee Health facilities more accessible to patients with asthma. In February, four LPG primary care clinics became the first pediatric outpatient offices in the state designated platinum-level “Asthma-Friendly” by the Florida Asthma Coalition (FAC). This is the highest level of recognition the coalition awards and highlights outpatient centers that create a safe and healthy environment for patients with asthma.
Dr. Silva also served on the Board of Directors for the Bonita Springs YMCA for several years and was an active member of the Children’s Medical Services cleft palate program.
