Regional Cancer Center Expansion Opens in Fort Myers
A new, 24,000-square-foot building is now open at the Regional Cancer Center in Fort Myers. Located near the intersection of Interstate 75 and Colonial Boulevard, the Regional Cancer Center is a collaboration of Lee Health, 21st Century Oncology and Florida Cancer Specialists. The construction project began last year to accommodate a growth in services, including expansion of the pharmacy, palliative care services, genetic counseling and survivorship programs. Collectively, the Regional Cancer Center is the fourth-largest community cancer treatment center in the state of Florida. With more than 15,000 patient visits each year treating a variety of malignancies in both men and women, RCC survival rates meet or exceed the national average for all cancer treatment facilities. Skanska Construction was contracted as manager at risk and provided architectural design services.
