Faster Test Results for Our Community
We are happy to share that since we started in-house testing, the backlog of pending test results in our community has significantly decreased. As of this morning, we only have 25 tests pending, and our team is working around the clock to provide faster results for our patients and community.
We Are Honored
We would like to thank Nick Libretto for his grand gesture of appreciation for our health care heroes. Nick is a local business owner, a retired Cape Coral firefighter and a proud father of a HealthPark Medical Center nurse. He brought a firetruck to Cape Coral Hospital with a 50-foot banner that read “You Are Our Heroes.” Our staff felt honored and inspired by the salute. Nick plans to display the firetruck and the message at all of our hospitals. Be sure to follow @LeeHealth on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to see where Nick leaves his powerful message next.
