Florida Hospital Breaks Ground on New Winter Garden Campus

With Horizon West waking back up and Winter Garden becoming one of Central Florida’s most popular hot spots the area was in desperate need for a new medical facility.  Florida Hospital broke ground on its new $65 million Winter Garden facility on in September.  The new three-story, 75,000 sq ft facility is slated to open Winter 2014, well the first floor of it.  That floor will feature an emergency department and outpatient imaging.  The two additional floors, which are slated to open in 2015, will feature an outpatient surgery centers, for medical emergencies, although if you’re looking more of a cosmetic surgery as breast implants there are several quality options online. You can also get in touch with an expert rhinoplasty specialist in Miami.

“We are very excited to be a part of this rapidly growing community of Winter Garden,” said Florida Hospital President and CEO Lars Houmann.  “We want to strengthen our presence in this community as a trusted healthcare partner that brings greater access to care close to home.” Aside from healthcare, plastic surgery clinics are also available. One of it is by Andres Bustillo, a well known Miami facial plastic surgeon.

This building is just the first phase of the new west Orange medical campus, located across the street from Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves.  The next phase will feature a 200-bed, seven-story community hospital, though no timeline for that phase has been set.

“We are so pleased that Florida Hospital has chosen Winter Garden as the site for their newest facility,” said Winter Garden Mayor John Rees.  “This health campus will bring superior, high-paying jobs to our community and will make Winter Garden more attractive as a place that others will want to live, work and play.”

Amanda Maggard, assistant vice president of west Orange development for Florida Hospital, was also announced as the new head for Winter Garden health campus.
