Lake Nona Medical City

It's been called a new chapter in Orlando’s history.  The 650-acre health and life sciences park known as Lake Nona Medical City is a landmark for Orlando and a premier location for medical care, research and education.  Carefully planned and laid out, Lake Nona Medical City represents a deliberate strategy to create a centralized focus of sophisticated medical treatment, research and education in Central Florida.  Based on the proven theory that a cluster of healthcare and bioscience facilities in proximity to one another will accelerate innovation, this intellectual hub opened in a coordinated fashion with a collaborative mission. In just the last seven years, Lake Nona Medical City has become home to some of the nation’s top hospitals, universities, research institutions and health and life science companies. Already Lake Nona Medical City’s pioneering institutions are forming networks and synergies making Orlando a global destination for health care, research and medical education while creating an economic development and job creation engine for the region.
