LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Lee Memorial Health System board voted unanimously this afternoon to move forward in appealing the state's rejection of its plan to build an 80-bed hospital in Estero.
According to the hospital attorney, it could cost anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 to fight the denial.
The hospital was proposed for 33 acres along Coconut Road between S. Tamiami Trail and Via Coconut Point, adjacent to the Bonita Community Health Center.
The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration denied the application on June 7. The health system had until July 2 to appeal the ruling.
