Earlier this year, Florida Hospital Kissimmee announced their expansion plans. After months of preparation, Florida Hospital broke ground today, starting construction on the new $70 million patient bed tower.

Designed to be a “mirror image” of the 65,000-square-foot, $60 million medical office tower completed in 2010, the new tower will contribute greatly to the region’s economic development. Consisting of 80 additional patient beds, it will also create 50 permanent health care positions, with the potential to create more than 200 new jobs. These jobs will essentially double the existing workforce in the Kissimmee hospital.

The new tower, scheduled for completion in spring 2015, will also bring new medical services including cardiology and cardiac catheterization labs.
