The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Southwest Florida is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides access to therapeutic, wellness, and mental health services through qualified contracted providers. Clients can receive services, not typically covered by insurance, to help them manage the symptoms of the disease. The MS Center covers the cost of the services, requiring only a small co-pay from the client.
New participants must apply to become an MS Center “Client” in order to be eligible to receive services and to receive a list of providers. If you don’t need the services, you should still register with us to become a “Member” of the MS Center. Then you can participate in our MS Center activities and educational events.
The MS Center of Southwest Florida is a Partner Agency of the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee.
The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Southwest Florida’s (MS Center) mission is to improve the quality of life for people affected by multiple sclerosis.
The MS Center provides a comprehensive wellness program designed to help manage pain, improve mobility, and decrease isolation. Services include therapeutic services such as massage therapy, acupuncture, and mental health counseling. Insurance is not required. Registered clients pay a small co-pay when they visit one of the Center’s 30 contracted providers.
The MS Center is a local organization, not a national chapter, and is funded entirely by the generous contributions of individuals and businesses in our community.
Founded in 2000, the MS Center is located in the heart of Southwest Florida, in Bonita Springs. Individuals with MS can register with the center to take part in any of its health-focused activities. Support groups, personal training, Yoga classes, art classes, and educational activities, are all provided at the center.
