There is not a hospital on the island. This is the information the Chamber of Commerce has to offer regarding nearby medical facilities:

"San-Cap Medical Center, on Sanibel, offers family medicine and physical therapy. In private practice, island-based physicians and caregivers specialize in dentistry, podiatry, internal medicine, ophthalmology, and other areas. HealthPark Medical Center, a full-service hospital, lies less than 15 minutes from Sanibel on the mainland. Its emergency room stays open 24 hours."

If you haven't been to Sanibel before, you should know that traffic getting off island is VERY slow in the afternoons in season. If you really have an emergency, call 911 - don't think you will get to the hospital in 20 minutes on your own.
