Lee Health – Why Work For Us?


lmhs banner

Health System Overview

Our origins can be traced to the Fall of 1916 when a group of community leaders set aside 300 dollars, and donated lumber from the dismantled Court House, to build the first hospital in Fort Myers. That first hospital, Lee County Hospital, a two story, four room, 10 bed, wooden building was the beginning of community health care in our area.

Today, Lee Health, formerly Lee Memorial Health System, consists of four acute care hospitals: Lee Memorial Hospital, HealthPark Medical Center, Gulf Coast Medical Center and Cape Coral Hospital, and two speciality hospitals: Golisano Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida and The Rehabilitation Hospital. With a total of 1426 beds, and over 1 million patient contacts each year, this makes Lee Health the largest public health system in the state of Florida, receiving no direct tax support.

Supported by more than 13,000 dedicated employees and 4,500 volunteers and auxilians, Lee Health remains the bedrock of our community by offering acute care, emergency care, rehabilitative and diagnostic services, health and wellness education, community outreach and advocacy programs throughout the five county region. We continue to invest back into our community to improve facilities, add services and extending care to those who need it most - in their own back yard.

Since we opened our first hospital over 100 years ago, our dedication to our community - the people with whom we live and work - has been at the core of Lee Health's mission, values and strategic planning principles.

We are Lee Health: Caring People, Inspiring Health.

To be recognized as the exclusive organization of Lee Memorial Health System for the solicitation, receiving, recording, management and disbursement of gift income in order to expand the Health System’s capabilities in patient care, education and research.

Lee Health is the Heart of the Community...and the LMHS Foundation is the pulse that keeps it beating.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lee Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are reasonable, able to work from home, flexibility in schedule, work environment in coding is top notch thanks to the coding manager Ryan and my supervisor and lead. They want you to learn and be the best you can. I am not micromanaged. Expected to meet high accuracy and realistic productivity goals.

    Cons

    pay could be better considering we code for physicians and midlevels of almost all specialties

    Advice to Management

    Seek more leadership teams like you have in my coding team.
    Evaluate compensation as it pertains to job knowledge in coding.
