ORLANDO, Fla. — New research shows that the lifespan of women is not growing at the same rate as the lifespan as men. Florida Hospital believes that now is the time to put the focus back on women’s health. On the front lawn of the hospital, Florida Hospital announced a renewed commitment to women’s services that will span across Central Florida with three new buildings, additional services, world-class physicians and an innovative health and wellness platform to provide women with tools to live longer, healthier lives.
“Florida Hospital has been providing services to women for more than 100 years across our system and it has always been a part of who we are,” said Lars Houmann, president and CEO of Florida Hospital. “But we know we can do more. Now is the time for us to step forward and put the focus on women’s health.”
The three new buildings will house comprehensive services for women and expand on current services already available at Florida Hospital. The Celebration Health Women’s Institute is a four-story 80,000-square-foot building that will house a variety of women’s health services including breast care, radiation and oncology, gynecology and obstetrics. The Winter Park Women’s Health Pavilion, a two-story building opening in fall of 2013, will be a comprehensive one-stop boutique center for women’s health and wellness and also offer a variety of medical services. Florida Hospital Orlando announced plans for a new women’s tower, the Florida Hospital Orlando Women’s Pavilion, a 12-story patient tower that will feature more than 300 patient beds upon completion in 2015.
Florida Hospital also announced the kick-off of Healthy 100 Women. Florida Hospital is on a journey to inspire the entire Central Florida community to live to a healthy 100 years old. Healthy 100 Women will allow women to help shape what services and programs should be included as Florida Hospital embarks on this journey to expand women’s health care services.
