Lee Memorial celebrates 100 years with new name: Lee Health

Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. – It started from humble beginnings: just four rooms, 10 beds and two nurses.

Lee Memorial Hospital opened on Oct. 3, 1916 at Grand and Victoria avenues.

But 100 years later, Lee Memorial Health Systems is taking Southwest Florida on a trip through history with a new website and marking its centennial with a new name: Lee Health.
