About Colonial Cancer Center

Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute was looking for a way to expand their presence and enhance their ability to care for patients in the City of Fort Myers. As a trusted strategic partner, Optimal Outcomes was brought on to provide a full range of healthcare development services for the Colonial Cancer Center. In February 2020, we sourced 4 acres of land with frontage on I-75 and pumped the gas to deliver a Class A medical facility from concept to completion. The healthcare development project was under budget and ahead of schedule.


Located at 8981 Colonial Center Drive, Fort Myers, FL, The Colonial Cancer Center was completed in February 2022 totaling 20,585 SF. The dramatic mono-sloped tower elements contrast against the wetlands backdrop to draw attention from highway 75. The modern color scheme with clean leading lines accent the dramatic towers. Large panoramic windows in the infusion room and sub-wait rooms overlook wetlands, bringing large amounts of natural light and views of nature into the healing spaces. The integrated canopy protects staff and patients’ access to the mobile Pet/CT unit while accenting the prominent North elevation.

To provide the highest quality of healthcare to the community, we’ve exercised Evidence-Based Design (“EBD”) throughout the planning, designing, and construction phases of this project. EBD is about creating better buildings through the knowledge and application of proven best practices identified through the collection and sharing of knowledge learned within these phases. Ultimately, the state-of-the-art facility does not only improve the quality, convenience, and delivery of healthcare from providers to patients, but it reduces patient stress, includes innovative operational efficiencies, and enhances overall patient/provider experiences.


The Colonial Cancer Center now offers Lee County patients access to Medical Oncology, Hematology, Lab & Clinical Research, Nutritional Counseling, Rx To Go, mobile PET/CT, 18 exam rooms, and 51 infusion chairs.

Because leaving a positive legacy is our key priority, our clients see us as a long-term, strategic partner with a proven track record for owner representation and health care development. Our references speak volumes about our actions and most of our work comes from direct referrals.
