Lee Health is Calling on Local Leaders to Take Action on Promoting Social Distancing
COVID-19 is spreading exponentially across our country, and it will continue to do so if we do not enable, encourage and enforce social distancing. We are asking our local to leaders to act, and we are asking everyone in our community to heed the advice to stay home. Please encourage your families, neighbors and friends to limit contact with others, avoid people who are coughing or sneezing and stay home to slow the rate of spread in our community.
Consolidation of Outpatient Facilities
As Lee Health continues to advocate for social distancing, we are limiting routine health services in our outpatient facilities to prevent further escalation and reduce contact to slow down the spread of COVID-19. This will allow us to better manage the capacity and other resource demands that are likely to emerge in our community as the spread of the virus continues. As we consolidate services to fewer locations, patients who have testing or services scheduled will be called to reschedule at a later date or in another location. Lee Health Coconut Point, the Regional Cancer Center, Surfside, the Sanctuary and HealthPark Commons Outpatient Centers will remain open, while all other outpatient centers will close or partially close. All essential visits will be consolidated into the facilities that remain open. We will return to normal operations at the earliest opportunity.
