Lake Nona’s Medical City will be home to the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, the Burnham Institute, the University of Florida Academic and Research Center and Nemours Children’s Hospital, along with the new Orlando VA Medical Center. The VA Medical Center will host a large multispecialty outpatient clinic, 134-inpatient beds, 120-community living center beds, a 60-bed domiciliary and administrative and support services. With such a wide variety of services, this facility and its 3,500 employees are expected to serve over 115,000 Veterans a year. The primary care team is already open to serve Veterans and other services will continue to open this year and next year.


Construction is over 95% complete and though certain components are already running, it is expected to be fully operational by the summer. This excellent access to Veteran Services in the Orlando area is definitely a draw for businesses and families alike. And the collection of other medical services in Lake Nona’s Medical City means that Central Florida will be a hub for medical innovation moving forward, which is great for everyone!
