Officials broke ground on the new Orlando Health Lake Mary Hospital, representing the next growth phase for the campus. The 320,000-square-foot facility will have 180 beds housed in two six-story towers with the ability to expand up to 240 beds. One focus area for the new hospital will be women’s health, including labor and delivery services, and a future neonatal intensive care unit.
The new facility will include six operating rooms and two catheterization labs, a comprehensive imaging suite, medical-surgical bed units, an observation unit, dining, chapel and gift shop, among other features.
“This is a major milestone for the community and the vision we have for this healthcare campus,” says Shawn Molsberger, president of Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital and senior vice president for Orlando Health’s northeast region.
Once complete, the hospital will be connected to the existing Orlando Health Emergency Room – Lake Mary, which opened in September 2019 featuring 25 treatment rooms, an imaging department, outpatient pharmacy and lab draw station. Patients also have access to full ambulatory services and a helipad. Located next door on the campus is the 60,000-square-foot Orlando Health Medical Pavilion offering several outpatient specialties, including, pulmonology, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, urology, orthopedics, general surgery, cardiology, and cardiac rehab.
