America’s first solar city now has its own doctors. In a partnership with Lee Health, Babcock Ranch now offers physicians in addition to its Healthy Living Center, which opened about eight months ago.

And you don’t have to live in Babcock Ranch to see any of its new doctors.

“This will continue the mission and continue the drive toward better health and better wellness in our community,” said Dr. Lawrence Antonucci, President & CEO of Lee Health.

Syd Kitson, the developer of Babcock Ranch, said the partnership fits the community perfectly.

“In order to have a sustainable, real community, [and] preventative medicine, we need doctors,” Kitson said.
