A Message from Dr. Larry Antonucci
“We promise to listen and communicate effectively, embrace empathy, act with compassion and continually improve care – creating a safe, comforting and healing environment for our patients, their families and each other.” This statement, known as our ExceptionalLee Promise, unites our team members across Lee Health under one guiding, unifying and inspiring commitment to showing up as our best selves every day and night. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen tremendous strength, bravery and resilience from our teams on the frontlines. We have seen our team members do their best to live the ExceptionalLee Promise, even when fears, sadness and stress could have hindered their resolve. I am humbled and inspired by our Lee Health team.
