Kate Lee


Director of Surgical Services
Capital Regional Medical Center
North Florida Division


Kate is in the Navy Reserves and a few weeks ago was called to New York along with 500 other Navy Reserve medical professionals. Her journey began at the Javits Federal Medical Station where an initial training took place. Kate was then deployed to a hospital in Brooklyn. Kate is working as a support team for the ICU nurses – taking care of the sickest of patients. Her days are long and exhausting– but above all else, she is committed to the care and improvement of human life.

Kate is supported by her husband and her son – they keep in touch via FaceTime – and it’s those moments that give Kate strength and hope during the COVID-19 pandemic. She is honored to serve her country and to help those in need.
