The University of Central Florida plan for a new teaching hospital gives a first look at the new facility and the medical space it will create in the southeast Orlando community.

Located along Lake Nona Boulevard between Medical City and Humboldt drives, the hospital site covers about 36.5 acres.

It lies directly between the UCF Medical School and former Sanford Burnham Institute, which UCF is now negotiating to repurpose as a cancer research and treatment center.

Tavistock Development Company is seeking approval to build the UCF Lake Nona Medical Center, which will include a three-story teaching hospital with 64 beds, shell space for another 16 beds in the future, a 60,000-square-foot medical office building, helipad, and parking space.

UCF officials estimated back in July 2017 that construction would begin within 18 months, and for the facility to open by late 2020. UCF’s certificate of need requires them to have foundation work underway by January 2019.

UCF is partnering with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) on this project. HCA will invest $175 million to build and operate the facility, while UCF will provide the land and brand.

No state funds will be used to build the hospital.
