Construction begins on skilled nursing facility in Ft. Myers


The Weitz Company and Shell Point Retirement Community recently broke ground on a skilled nursing facility in Ft. Myers, Fla.

Dubbed Waterside Health Center, the 195,141-sq.-ft. skilled nursing facility is located at the front entry of Shell Point’s approximately 700-acre Continuing Care Retirement Community.

The new facility will include 180 beds with private rooms across its six levels. The building will include a grand entrance and lobby, rehabilitation center with therapy pool, health clinic, pharmacy, dental suite, nurse stations, dining and living rooms, sunrooms, plus a salon and day spa.

Additional features include a butterfly garden, chapel and prayer garden, boardwalk, gazebo and bistro.

Weitz will serve as the project’s construction manager, while RDG Planning & Design is the architect.

The project is scheduled for completion in fall 2021.
