Additional services now available at Lee Health Outpatient Center in Cape

By CJ HADDAD - | Apr 10, 2024

As a way to meet the continued needs of a growing Cape Coral, the county’s top healthcare provider announced that additional services are now operational at an existing facility.

Lee Health’s Outpatient Center at Surfside, located at the intersection of Veterans Parkway and Surfside Boulevard, can now offer orthopedics, rheumatology and rehabilitation services, while also featuring a breast health center, imaging and lab services. It will also have primary care physician offices on-site as part of its second phase completion.

Lee Health officials said this phase I also brings Lee Physician Group specialists in orthopedics to Cape Coral, lessening the need to travel to Fort Myers for appointments. Officials also said having rheumatology specialists in the city full time will give Cape patients additional access to specialized care.

“We are committed to caring for the Cape Coral community and the completion of phase II of the Outpatient Center at Surfside will offer residents and visitors more convenient access to primary and specialized services and open up new specialties to the area that weren’t previously available,” said Chief Officer of Community Based Care Kris Fay, in a release. “As the city continues to grow, its residents and visitors will enjoy convenient access to medical care in their own neighborhood. The completed facility will also help reduce wait times in Fort Myers since many Cape Coral patients will no longer need to travel as far to receive care.”

Having opened its doors in 2015, the Outpatient Center at Surfside, which has now added 15,000 square feet, provides a one-stop destination for those who require multiple services and specialties.

Lee Health officials have touted their desire to fulfill the needs of the growing population in Cape Coral, which recently included a 12-bed expansion at Cape Coral Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

Florida State University’s College of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Program is also based out of Cape Coral Hospital.

As for what’s still to come, the Lee Health Bimini Square Project broke ground earlier this year. Officials say it will be completed in 2025, and include adult primary care, cardiology services, imaging, breast health, lab services, pediatric primary care and behavioral health services.

The Outpatient Center at Surfside is at 2441 Surfside Blvd. Visit leehealth.org for more information.
