A note from Dr. Larry Antonucci, President & CEO of Lee Health
Last night, together with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, the Lee County Board of Commissioners, NCH Healthcare System, representatives from the Lee Health Board of Directors, including Vice-Chair Therese Everly, we showed our health care heroes the strength, support, love and respect of their community. The event included more than 100 vehicles shining their lights on the hospital and a helicopter flyer. It was a touching tribute, and I was so proud to have this opportunity to stand with community leaders and our brave first responders to recognize the great work our health care teams are doing every day and night in the battle against COVID-19. We are in this together, and together we are stronger. Click here for a few photos and check out our Facebook page for more.
We are Collecting Blood Donations from COVID-19 Survivors
If you have recovered from COVID-19, or know someone who has, please consider donating your blood. As part of the Mayo Clinic’s COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Study, we are asking for blood donations from COVID-19 survivors to help treat patients currently battling the virus. All donations collected by Lee Health stay in our community and will be used exclusively for our patients.
To donate, you must have recovered from COVID-19, have been symptom-free for at least two weeks, and later tested negative for the virus. Lee Health will assist with testing. Email COVID.plasma@LeeHealth.org to volunteer.
Cape Coral Mobile Collection Site Closed Sunday, April 19
