Florida Hospital Waterman announced plans today to build a 22,260-square-foot medical plaza in Mount Dora. The Medical Plaza will be the first of its kind in North Lake County and will provide a convenient model for the delivery of primary care, including easy scheduling of appointments, walk-in availability and extended office hours. Care coordination resources will also be available to provide patients with comprehensive health assistance and services.
Located at 19735 US Hwy 441 near the intersection of Wolfbranch Road, the two-story $13 million medical plaza will house eight primary care physicians. Featuring an efficient design, the property accommodates the option to expand and add additional services, as the second floor will be shelled for future use.
“Building on our legacy of high quality health care, we are grateful to have the opportunity to expand and serve the community’s growing demand for primary care services,” said Abel Biri, Florida Hospital Waterman Chief Executive Officer. “We considered many locations in the Golden Triangle area and noticed a true need here. We are confident this new medical plaza will give the surrounding residents increased access to excellent healthcare services.”
The new medical plaza’s location is also well-positioned to care for the growing Sorrento and Mt. Plymouth areas.
The architect is Gresham Smith and the main contractor is Robins & Morton. Construction will begin in January 2019 and is expected to be completed by September 2019.
In December, Florida Hospital Waterman will host a groundbreaking to celebrate with the community this new access point for quality health care.
“Over the last several years, we have made significant investments to provide residents more local access points for their healthcare needs. We have recruited new physicians to the area and are currently expanding our emergency department,” Biri said. “This new investment will afford us another opportunity to care for our community at every stage of life, in every stage of health, and builds on our continued commitment to serving the growing needs of our community.”
