Metro Orlando has nine proposed major health care projects in the pipeline for 2023 and beyond.
Those are in addition to big projects nearing completion this year, such as the Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute complex at the system’s main campus.
The nonprofit Orlando Health — with $8.1 billion in 2022 assets and $4.6 billion in 2021 revenue — also has a 150-bed hospital under construction in Lake Mary among other projects, Joe Williams, Orlando Health’s senior vice president of strategic planning, told Orlando Business Journal.
The 3,238-bed Orlando Health system owns nine Central Florida hospitals as well as urgent care centers, cancer centers, freestanding ERs and more. It is one of the region’s largest employers, with more than 23,000 workers.
Other health systems also have local expansion ongoing with even more projects in the pipeline. For example, HCA Florida Poinciana Hospital is going through a $9.9 million expansion to add emergency and inpatient beds as well as a new freestanding ER in the Lee Vista area. It is owned by Nashville, Tennessee-based HCA Healthcare Inc.
HCA has more than 50 hospitals in Florida, including five in Central Florida: the 404-bed HCA Florida Osceola Hospital in Kissimmee, the 221-bed HCA Florida Lake Monroe Hospital in Sanford, the 76-bed HCA Florida Poinciana Hospital, the 64-bed Oviedo Medical Center and the 64-bed UCF Lake Nona Hospital in partnership with UCF.
Meanwhile, Altamonte Springs-based AdventHealth has multiple projects under construction, including a new emergency room at Disney’s Flamingo Crossings Town Center set to open later this year.
Founded in 1908, AdventHealth’s Central Florida division includes more than 20 hospitals and ERs in the seven-county area in and around Orlando. Its hospitals and other outpatient services see more than 5.7 million patient visits annually. Nationally, the organization has more than $12.5 billion in annual operating revenue.
