Bonita Springs emergency room expected to open in December, NCH says

NCH Healthcare System’s $34 million outpatient medical center under construction in Bonita Springs is planned to open in December. “It’s on schedule,” said Phil Dutcher, NCH Healthcare System’s chief operating officer. The Collier County-based nonprofit’s project — NCH Healthcare Bonita — is a 41,000-square-foot, two-story medical facility. The site, which is located west of U.S. 41 and just south of the border separating Bonita Springs and Estero, will include a 24/7 emergency room, outpatient imaging center, physicians offices and a surgery center.

The Collier County-based nonprofit said it has begun clearing land on the future site of NCH Healthcare Bonita, between Walden Center Drive and U.S. 41, in Bonita Springs, at the city’s border with Estero. The site is next to Diamond Oaks Village and across the street from Angelina’s Ristorante. It also is about half a mile from competitor Lee Health’s $140 million outpatient health village, which is under construction off of Via Coconut Point.
