Stevens Construction has completed construction of a 57,000-square-foot, post-acute care skilled nursing unit for Lee Health, announced Mark Stevens, company president.

Developed by Aquila Healthcare Development, Lee Health is leasing the three-story, 75-bed medical facility, which provides post-acute services for patients needing short-term medical recovery and rehabilitation after their hospital stays.

With architectural services provided by Studio+, the Gulf Coast Medical Center Skilled Nursing Unit is designed with a homelike approach with three separate units, each housing an open concept living room, kitchen, nurse station and 25 private patient beds with convenient access to the occupational and physical therapy rooms. The Skilled Nursing Unit features a 3,000-square-foot therapy gym incorporating the latest technology and equipment, and a wellness garden with lush landscaping and herb planting stations.

Located at 13960 Plantation Road in Fort Myers, Gulf Coast Medical Center Skilled Nursing Unit is now open for business.
