KISSIMMEE, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Florida Hospital Kissimmee announced on Thursday that they will soon break ground on a new expansion, which will bring a modern surgical suite and expanded services to Osceola County.
They say that the 27,000-square-foot surgical suite will start with four operating rooms, with the capacity to add more to accommodate future growth. The operating rooms will feature state-of-the-art lighting, camera, and recording capabilities. Robotic services are planned as well.
“This expansion is part of a journey of growth over the last several years to meet the area’s health-care needs,” said Florida Hospital Kissimmee CEO, Sheila Rankin. “It demonstrates our commitment to bring wholeness to the Kissimmee community, today and for years to come.”
This project reportedly coincides with the hospital celebrating its 25th anniversary as part of the Florida Hospital system, and it caps a series of recent upgrades. Official groundbreaking on the project will occur in August, with completion expected in September 2019.
“We are always working to provide more services locally, resulting in our patients getting care closer to home, in their community,” Rankin said. “We are proud of our 25-year legacy of bringing whole-person health to the people of Osceola County, and this expansion positions us to continue that care well into the future.”
