Orlando Health to construct $30M hospital

Orlando (Fla.) Health is building its first freestanding site in Osceola County, Fla., according to the Osceola News-Gazette.

The $30 million project consists of a three-story, 60,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to create 650 new jobs, according to hospital and county officials.

The new hospital will bring needed medical services to Osceola's growing population, said Viviana Janer, Osceola County Commissioner.

The 14-acre medical center will house an emergency room and two floors of physicians, which includes primary care, OB-GYN, cardiology and pediatric departments. The ER will have full ambulatory services and a helipad to transport patients in critical condition to Dr. Phillips Hospital, the larger Orlando Health facility that will be affiliated with the new site.

Construction of the new ER and medical pavilion are expected be finished in early 2019.

Orlando Health has eight hospitals in seven Florida counties, employs 18,000 workers and treats two million Florida residents and 4,500 tourists annually.
