According to the Orlando Business Journal, South Lake Hospital is one of Central Florida’s top hospitals, and they’re getting even better by opening two new locations in Lake County. This means our friends and neighbors in the Central Florida 55 Plus communities have much more convenient access to healthcare. That’s not the only benefit! Leesburg City Manager Al Minner says, “The medical field is a targeted growth industry that provides additional jobs, investment, and opportunities. The health care pavilion fits in well with the city’s economic development goals.” This means that while your life and healthcare access is made easier, the cities you live in are also getting better and better. It’s a great time to retire in sunny Central Florida!

Blue Cedar is a 30,000 sq. ft., one-story building located in Leesburg at 22316 U.S. Highway 27 near Blue Cedar Road and Florida’s Turnpike, and will include an emergency department, outpatient imaging, laboratory services, rehabilitation center and medical offices for varied specialized practices, as well as family medical.

Joe H. and Loretta Scott Health Pavilion is a two-story, 40,000 sq. foot building, and is off U.S. Highway 27 just north of U.S. Highway 192. This is in Four Corners, the southern tip of the health district, at the intersecting point of four neighboring counties (Lake, Orange, Osceola and Polk). It will have the same state-of-the-art technology and similar services as the Blue Cedar location.

A call for easier access to healthcare throughout Lake County has been answered by South Lake Hospital in the form of these two brand-new, beautiful satellite locations featuring full-service emergency departments, allowing patients access to all the services available at the main campus closer to their homes. South Lake Hospital Health Pavilion at Blue Cedar is set to open in January of next year, and South Lake Hospital Joe H. and Loretta Scott Health Pavilion will open its doors in August. These satellite locations, as well as improvements to the main campus, are the hospital’s plan to accommodate a growing population in these areas. Conveniently located, state-of-the-art health care is just another reason to make Central Florida your destination for a fun & healthy retirement!
