Orlando Health South Lake Hospital is expanding its operations in Clermont as part of its regional growth plan. The nonprofit health system, with $9.6 billion in assets under management and fiscal 2023 revenue of $6.1 billion, is set to open a new five-story, $140 million patient tower on February 12th. The new building, located at 1900 Don Wickham Drive in Clermont, will add to the hospital’s existing 147 beds.
The expansion includes a state-of-the-art facility that will provide specialized care for women and babies, further cementing the hospital’s position as a leading healthcare provider in the area. The 212,000-square-foot building will open with 58 beds, with the potential for an additional 30 beds in the future through shell space. This expansion represents a significant investment in the community and provides additional capacity to meet the region’s growing healthcare needs.
The Orlando Health South Lake Hospital Center for Women and Babies will be housed in the new building, along with offices associated with the Orlando Women’s Health Institute. This expansion reflects the health system’s commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services to residents of Clermont and surrounding areas.
