A Tradition of Caring and Healing
Orlando Regional Healthcare was founded in 1918 on the heels of World War I, in the midst of the Spanish Flu epidemic that raged across the world. Orange General Hospital, as it was known then, was supported financially by community members and a dedicated group of doctors. This former 50-bed, unairconditioned hospital now boasts 1,870 beds and includes the incomparable Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children & Women and the world-class MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.
Today, we are one of Florida’s most comprehensive, not-for-profit organizations. Still a community- supported hospital organization, we serve the healthcare needs of 540,000 residents and more than 4,500 visitors annually in four counties.
With eight hospitals in our family, including partnership with South Lake Hospital, we are home to Central Florida’s only Level I Trauma Center, which is equipped to handle the most serious emergencies, and the region’s only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit - treating the tiniest of babies with the highest level of skill and care. We have also established The Heart Center at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, bringing leading pediatric cardiology subspecialists together to repair heart defects in the smallest patients.
What you will find when you enter any of our Orlando Regional facilities is an attention to patient and family comfort that is unmatched anywhere. As members of the Central Florida community, our staff takes great pride in treating our patients as we would our own family - with extraordinary skill, the best technology and compassionate care.
