Orlando Health South Lake Hospital broke ground on a 29,000-square-foot outpatient surgery center with four operating rooms, two procedure rooms, twenty pre and post-operative rooms, located on the hospital’s main campus in Clermont, Fla. Scheduled to open in early 2020, the Orlando Health South Lake Hospital Center for Specialty Surgery will feature advanced technology to allow our surgeons to perform complex outpatient surgeries.
The Orlando Health South Lake Hospital Center for Specialty Surgery project developed out of an identified healthcare need in the rapidly growing service areas. The hospital worked closely with local physicians to identify the type of facility that would best benefit the surgical needs of patients in the south Lake County community. The result of this collaboration will be a unique surgery center focusing on orthopedic, podiatry, neurosurgery and pain management surgeries and procedures in an outpatient setting, with the ability to allow extended recovery.
As the hospital builds the outpatient surgery center, it is also simultaneously expanding its surgical services footprint in the hospital, adding three additional operating rooms at the hospital. The expansion of surgical services throughout Orlando Health South Lake Hospital will allow the hospital to ensure patients have ease of access to the appropriate surgical setting for their healthcare needs.
