It’s been called a new chapter in Orlando’s history. The 650-acre health and life sciences park known as Lake Nona Medical City is a landmark for Orlando and a premier location for medical care, research and education. Carefully planned and laid out, Lake Nona Medical City represents a deliberate strategy to create a centralized focus of sophisticated medical treatment, research and education in Central Florida.

In the next decade, Lake Nona Medical City will be home to some of the nation’s top hospitals, universities, research institutions and life science companies. The Medical City’s pioneering institutions are already forming networks and synergies, which are transforming Orlando into a global destination for health care, research and medical education while creating an economically improving the region.
