Lee Health Coconut Point offers convenient access to care with a number of important quality services under one roof, including an emergency department, laboratory, pharmacy, diagnostics, outpatient surgery, Lee Physician Group offices, a Healthy Life Center, rehabilitation services and educational facilities.

“We designed Lee Health Coconut Point around the needs of our patients in South Lee County and the need for a convenient location residents and visitors can go to for all of their primary care, specialist and healthcare needs,” said president and chief executive officer of Lee Health Dr. Larry Antonucci. “We are pleased that Lee Health Coconut Point has become a preventive health and wellness destination for South Lee County and beyond.
