By Georgiana Mihaila, Associate Editor
Local community members will get a chance to see for themselves that the long-awaited Poinciana Medical Center is soon to become a reality, as HCA Healthcare has scheduled a VIP tour on July 13.
The community-wide open house will preview the new facility, located in Poinciana—ten miles south of Kissimmee, at the corner of Cypress Parkway and Solivita Boulevard—that will serve, upon completion, as a campus for the Osceola Regional Medical Center and HCA Healthcare Company.
Poinciana Medical Center will be a two-story, 90,000 square foot building with 24 private medical-surgical beds and a six-bed ICU. According to a company news release, in support of both inpatient and outpatient care, the facility will provide a full range of acute care services including diagnostic imaging, inpatient and outpatient surgery, cardiac catheterization, laboratory, pharmacy, and a full range of support services.
The Emergency Department will be approximately 11,000 square feet with 12 exam rooms. In addition, the facility will include a 16-slice CT, radiography, fluoroscopy room and ultrasound. The facility also features an EMS entrance and helicopter pad for rapid transport of critically ill patients to Osceola Regional Medical Center.
The project calls for a nearly $65 million investment on behalf of Nashville-based HCA (Hospital Corporation of America). Upon completion, the Poinciana Medical Center campus will house a 42,000-square-foot freestanding medical office building with leasable square footage for physicians and other healthcare providers, and it will create up to 200 full-time jobs.
