Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at Naples
Currently located within the Naples Community Hospital Medical Plaza near downtown Naples, this center offers care for vitreo-retinal disorders, macular diseases, glaucoma, neuro-ophthalmology, pediatric ophthalmology, oculofacial plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, and ophthalmic and orbital oncology. Patients also have access to the latest clinical trials in these areas.
New Center Opening Spring 2015
Construction of a new $15 million, 20,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art eye center is scheduled for completion in Spring 2015. The new Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at Naples is being built near the downtown business district at the intersection of US-41 and Cypress Woods Drive, conveniently located near I-75. This new two-story facility will provide easy accessibility for patients throughout the entire west coast of Florida.
Bascom Palmer’s dramatic expansion in Naples will double the number of ophthalmologists on permanent staff, house a custom‑designed ambulatory surgical center, and provide more than six times the current amount of clinical space for the treatment of virtually all eye diseases and disorders. The additional space will allow Bascom Palmer to expand the number of clinical research trials offered to patients. The center will include full‑time specialists for all ocular diseases, including macular and corneal diseases, cataracts and glaucoma. Read the full story at Images Magazine 2014 Issue 1.
Building the Future
The building’s magnificent architectural design was inspired by the spirit of optic science, with an emphasis on transparency and natural light. The steel-and-glass exterior offers views of the tropical landscape from the first- and second-floor waiting areas. Emphasis on aesthetics, lighting, exterior views, seating, furnishings, regional artwork, indoor climate, and accessibility ensure a comfortable patient experience.
