Property purchase to close this year
Orlando, FL (July 11, 2022) – Orlando Health is expanding in the Tampa Bay area with plans for a new hospital in Wiregrass Ranch, a high-quality, master-planned community of more than 5,000 acres. Located at the northeast corner of the intersection of State Road 56 and Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard, Orlando Health Wiregrass Ranch Hospital will be easily accessible for residents living in Pasco County and northern Hillsborough County.
“With the tremendous growth on Florida’s West Coast, we are truly excited to have Orlando Health meet the needs of this region,” said John Moore, senior vice president of Orlando Health’s West region. “At Orlando Health Wiregrass Ranch Hospital, we will provide a broad range of healthcare services, all in one convenient location. Patients will receive exceptional emergency and inpatient care from clinical experts in multiple specialties, the highest quality diagnostic services, and seamless access to all of Orlando Health’s trusted primary and specialty care providers.”
A site plan submitted to Pasco County provides a glimpse into the ultimate 300-bed multi-story hospital and wellness campus. “We are thrilled to welcome an amazing health system like Orlando Health to our Wiregrass Ranch Community,” said J.D. Porter, Wiregrass Ranch Inc. “Access to the best healthcare has always been a foundation of the Wiregrass Ranch community and Orlando Health’s excellent track record of putting patients first will no doubt serve our vibrant and growing population looking for high quality healthcare, and a great foundation to our town center.”
The property purchase is slated to close later this fall. An official groundbreaking and opening date will be announced at a later date.
