Development of Florida Hospital’s Health Village, a 172-acre mixed use planned community, began with the recent completion of the 156,000 square foot medical office building, which houses a new Diabetes Institute, and the construction of Florida Hospital’s Translational Research Institute for Metabolism and Diabetes which opened in early 2012. Soon to break ground is the 150,000 sq. ft. bioscience building and a 235-unit apartment complex.
Modeled as a destination for visitors and residents seeking world-class care, Health Village is on pace to set the wellness standard for urban communities. By creating an environment rich in resources that encourage whole-person health, Florida Hospital can extend their healing mission beyond the hospital doors, and create a greater impact in the collective health of the community that surrounds them.
By the time Florida Hospital’s 15-year plan is complete, they expect to create thousands of jobs, countless partnership opportunities and become a high-demand health care resource for those in Central Florida and abroad. Their current development plan includes:
- Hospital facilities to support up to 800 additional beds
- 600,000 sq. ft. of medical office space
- 100,000 sq. ft. of general office space
- 100,000 sq. ft. of retail space
- 550 residential units
