Cape Coral health systems are the key drivers in this market and Lee Health and NCH Healthcare—which dominate Lee and Collier counties, respectively—have escalated their rivalry by opening competing freestanding emergency rooms in south Lee County. In addition, the planned construction new facilities, especially HCA Healthcare’s planned hospital, will introduce new competition in the highly consolidated hospital sector. While COVID-19 has brought financial difficulties to area health systems, Lee Health and NCH Healthcare were able to offer virtual patients visits when the COVID-19 public health emergency struck owing to telemedicine infrastructure that was installed in recent years.
