FORT MYERS — Retirement community Cypress Cove at HealthPark Florida plans to build a rehabilitation center that will include a pool and exercise area attached to the skilled-nursing center.
Cypress Cove says it plans to start construction with the help of a $2 million gift it received from the Mead family recently. The community did not provide further details on the donor, but in a statement it says the gift is the largest in the community's 15-year history.
The new center will be attached to the community's skilled nursing and rehabilitation neighborhood, known as The Lodge at Cypress Cove. The 3,500-square-foot facility will feature multiple treatment rooms, a therapy pool for knee and hip rehabilitation, a weight room and an exercise area with state-of-the-art equipment.
“We are extremely appreciative for this thoughtful gift,” says Cypress Cove Health Services Director David Gray, in a statement. “It provides an opportunity to create an exceptional facility to add to our already quality program.”
