In partnership with Lee Community Healthcare

Lee Memorial Health System is committed to improving the health of our community. In partnership with Lee Community Healthcare, Inc., Lee Memorial Health System created community health centers to better serve the uninsured and underinsured of our community.

In 2010, it was estimated that 191,235 Lee County residents were living in low-income households, with more than 130,000 of them lacking access to primary health care services. In response to this acute community need, Lee Memorial Health System opened primary care clinics in the Dunbar and North Fort Myers communities during 2011 and later in Cape Coral.

These locations provided more than 10,829 office visits to 4,165 uninsured and economically distressed residents of Lee County during 2013.

The clinics provide basic health services and connect patients to additional affordable medical services and prescription medications through a network of local medical partners.

Traditionally, community health centers and clinics have had to focus on moving the most patients through the “care process” as possible. However, we believe that time taken to listen to and empathize with our patients is time well spent.

While some models of care call for 15 and 30 minute long appointments, Lee Community Healthcare has chosen to allow longer times for scheduled appointments in an effort to improve the quality of care provided and the bond between us and our patients.


Payment Options

Based on household size and family income Lee Community Healthcare patients can qualify for discounts on their care. For example, a mother or father with two children earning less than $23,850 can be seen by an Lee Community Healthcare provider for as little as $15.00.

In fact, you can visit our discount calculator on the web at www.discountfeecalculation.org. We welcome all existing Medicaid and Medicare recipients as well as patients possessing private insurance, including Wellcare, Integral and Pristige payments.

In addition, our highly trained staff routinely assists patients in evaluating their eligibility to purchase health insurance through the Affordable Care Act health insurance exchanges, and in signing up for Medicaid or Medicare benefits. No one is ever turned away because they lack the money to pay for their care.

* All patients must provide eligibility at the time of the first appointment.
