Regional Cancer Center

Every year since opening in 2008, the Regional Cancer Center has experienced double-digit growth. The five-year success rate for cancers diagnosed and managed within Lee Health exceeds national averages, yet the Center remains one of Lee Health’s greatest “untold” success stories. The Center’s treatment of both the body and the spirit, with the latest in research and findings, reflects a synergy of medical care. It provides a health care destination point that is unprecedented in Lee County.

To continue to provide high quality comprehensive care in our growing community, Lee Health will begin a multi-million-dollar expansion of the Regional Cancer Center, including a 24,000-square-foot addition to the existing 62,000-square-foot health center on Colonial Boulevard near I-75 in Fort Myers.
