Updates on Issues of Impact

Engage Estero believes the best way to get a community involved is to make sure they are aware of the issues impacting their future, and know how to impact those decisions before they are made. We conduct and publish original research and articles aimed at getting residents Engaged.

The News-Press reported last Friday that new opposition to the Coconut Point hospital means delays and potential overturns of recent go-aheads from the Agency for Health Care Administration.
NCH Healthcare System and Physicians Regional Healthcare System filed Petitions to the governing body, requesting formal hearings in the next six months. The systems, both based in Collier County, claim that more hospital beds in the area would harm existing hospitals, increase patient expenses, and reduce the quality of care.
These hearings are usually held in Tallahassee, and it is likely that all three Southwest Florida projects mentioned in the petitons will be heard as a group.

The ECCL will continue to monitor the progress of the hospital application, and report to you. Bookmark the Health section of our website for quick access to updates.
