Fourth Convenient Care Location Opens in South Fort Myers

Fourth Convenient Care Location Opens in South Fort Myers

(Fort Myers, Fla. – Oct. 31, 2017) – With flu season beginning and seasonal residents returning to the area, Lee Health is pleased to announce the opening of its newest Convenient Care location and medical specialty services in the Outpatient Center at Metro Parkway, near the intersection of Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers.

Convenient Care offers 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. Located on the first floor of the new Outpatient Center, the Convenient Care has 17 exam rooms, including three procedure rooms for laceration repair and abscesses. 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 centers are located throughout Lee County and offer quality, walk-in medical care for adults and children in a cost-effective, comfortable environment from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days per week (except some major holidays). 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.

Located at 13340 Metro Parkway, the new Outpatient Center is also home to Lee Physician Group Cardiology offices on the second floor, and outpatient cardiology testing services on the third floor. Additional physician specialty offices are planned to open in the near future, including infectious disease and pulmonology.
