A Houston, Texas-based company has plans for a “micro-hospital” in Clermont.
Nutex Health has submitted plans with the city of Clermont for a conditional use permit so it can build a 28,700-square-foot single-story building and parking on 2.82 acres southwest of the corner of U.S. 27 and Hammock Ridge Road. The facility would have both emergency and inpatient medical services, separating it from freestanding emergency rooms which primarily offer emergency care.
The building would include eight dedicated patient rooms, an operating room, medical laboratory and other hospital services like CT scans, MRI and X-ray. The hospital would be open 24/7 and have a staff of 10 for each shift.
An entity connected to Orlando-based LCA Development is listed as owner of the land, part of a proposed 23-acre retail/office development called the Shoppes at Hammock Ridge. Nutex officials were not immediately available for comment.
