Lee Health Convenient Care Extends Evening Hours

Learn how to better manage your chronic pain

(Fort Myers, Fla. – Jan. 18, 2018) – Two Lee Health Convenient Care locations have announced extended hours of operation, in response to the needs of the community. These urgent care centers located at 1682 NE Pine Island Road in Cape Coral, and the newest facility at 13340 Metro Parkway, near the intersection of Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers, are now open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week (except a few major holidays).

Convenient Care offers quality, walk-in medical care for adults and children in a cost-effective, comfortable environment. The urgent care centers are an alternative to the emergency department for treatment of nonlife-threatening injury or illness with the expertise of skilled physicians in a state-of-the-art clinic. Convenient Care medical centers are ideal for sprains, strains, cuts, rashes, cold and flu, auto and work-related injuries, and school or sports physicals. Each site is equipped with X-ray capabilities for fractures and broken bones (not protruding through the skin).

“Convenient Care is helpful for individuals who don’t have a primary care physician, and it’s a great alternative to using the emergency department for nonlife-threatening medical issues - especially during season,” explains Kris Fay, Chief Administrative Officer of Lee Physician Group. “It gives the community immediate access to quality, hospital-affiliated health care provided by our trusted Lee Physician Group physicians and skilled nurses.”

Convenient Care is appropriate when: you have a nonlife-threatening emergency, you're unable to get an appointment with your primary care doctor, or if you’re not established with a primary care physician. No appointment or referral is necessary, and most insurance is accepted.

Other Lee Health Convenient Care locations include: 16230 Summerlin Road, Ft. Myers, and 4771 S. Cleveland Ave., Ft. Myers. These locations are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. daily. Kids Urgent Care, located in the Golisano| Nicklaus Children’s Health Center, 3361 Pine Ridge Road, Naples, is open from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. daily.
