UCF Lake Nona Hospital Among New Local Facilities To Open In 2021

A number of projects are expected to grow the presence of health care providers in the area this year.

Each of the region’s three largest health care systems — Orlando Health, AdventHealth and HCA Healthcare Inc. — are slated to open new facilities, including hospitals, medical office buildings and freestanding emergency rooms.

These established players aren’t the only ones with construction projects on the books. Jacksonville-based Brooks Rehabilitation plans to open a rehab hospital in Lake Nona, its first in the Orlando area.

Non-health care companies also have medical projects in the works. For example, Bentonville, Arkansas-based Walmart Inc. is bringing a new health care concept to a few of its local stores.

Medical construction projects like these represent opportunities to add construction jobs, as well as provide huge-value projects for companies. Additionally, new health care facilities are needed in areas where the population is growing.

One example is multinational construction firm Skanska signing a $64 million contract to build Orlando Health’s 370,000-square foot, $341 million Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute. The project — which is expected to be completed by second-quarter 2023 — will create roughly 1,000 temporary construction jobs along with 500 permanent health care jobs.
