If you had thoughts of racing in or watching the annual Cape Coral Cardboard Boat Regatta, think again. It’s been canceled.

From the late 1970s to the early 1990s Cape Coral Hospital was known across Southwest Florida for its excellent care. But, it hit a rough patch of corruption and financial struggles in the mid 90s that culminated in an FBI investigation. Lee Memorial Health System bought the community hospital in 1996, and in the intervening years it's been transformed into an award-winning model of healthcare and business excellence. But, that didn’t happen on accident. We'll meet the authors of the new book, “Mindful Healthcare”, to learn more about the mindful process behind that transformation.
