"You all ready to build a hospital?"
UCF Lake Nona Medical Center, a partnership hospital between UCF and HCA North Florida Division, will transform Central Florida’s healthcare community on a journey toward an academic medical approach.
We are reaching out to community healthcare providers and residents who wish to learn more about our new state-of-the-art emerging hospital adjacent to the UCF College of Medicine in Lake Nona.
Thank you for your interest. Together, we will advance the College of Medicine’s missions, help build Lake Nona’s Medical City and build a better, healthier tomorrow.
UCF Lake Nona Medical Center will be on land directly adjacent to the UCF College of Medicine in Lake Nona’s Medical City. It will be just minutes from the Orlando International Airport and will be easily accessible from major roads including Florida’s Turnpike, State Road 417 and the East-West Expressway.
HCA is driven by a single goal: the care and improvement of human life.
As one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, HCA is comprised of locally managed facilities that includes 178 hospitals and 119 freestanding surgery centers located in 20 U.S. states and in the United Kingdom.
HCA stands for the best practices of medicine, and uses its reach, scale and stability to transform healthcare and help communities thrive. Founded 50 years ago, HCA has followed a vision of healthcare the way it should be: patient-centered, constantly evolving and constantly improving, practiced with integrity and compassion.
In communities across North Florida, your neighbors, friends and colleagues are committed to building a Healthy Community - a community with dedicated neighborhood groups, active little leagues, charities helping those in need, first class institutions that contribute to the overall well-being of the community, and businesses committed to making the communities they serve a better place. We are the 14 hospitals in North Florida and Central Florida affiliated with HCA and their more than 14,000 employees, committed to a Healthy Community.
Established in 2006, the UCF College of Medicine is one of the first U.S. medical schools in decades to be built from the ground up.
As the medical school at the nation’s second largest university, UCF’s program epitomizes innovation, high-tech learning tools and a pioneering spirit to educate young doctors and scientists in a new and better way for the 21st century. The university’s M.D. graduates score in the top quartile nationally in all measures of student performance.
The medical school and HCA are also partnering to address the nation’s physician shortage. Together, they currently have 22 residency and fellowship programs across Central and North Central Florida. By 2020, this graduate medical education partnership hopes to have created 600+ residency slots across the state.
