Lee Hospital Patients Are Being Evacuated

Lee Health is evacuating up to 400 patients to hospitals in Collier County because of water pressure losses at two of its campuses. More patients will be transferred in the coming days as beds are found, said Dr. Larry Antonucci, president and chief executive officer of Lee Health.

When Lee Health says “campuses” they mean hospitals. These are not teaching hospitals. And they operate all of the hospitals in Lee County – three in total. So, all but one are being evacuated. Here is the link from the paper of record in Fort Myers, Florida.
