HCA Healthcare purchased nearly 100 acres in Estero for $52.5 million at the end of December, property records show.
The Nashville-based health care system bought the land for a planned hospital in Estero that state regulators approved last year, said Debra McKell, a spokeswoman for HCA West Florida, a division of HCA.
The land is bordered by U.S. 41 to the west, Williams Road to the south and Via Coconut Point to the east. Hertz Global Headquarters sits directly south of the property on Williams Road.
Property records show Fawcett Memorial Hospital, based in Port Charlotte, purchased the 100-acre property Dec. 20 from Estero North Point LTD.
