Central Florida has about $4.5 Billion of Commercial Construction work going on. Several of the projects are healthcare related. There are several hospital systems investing in their cancer treatment centers, which make up a piece of that $4.5 Billion! It’s been some time since a new cancer center was built in the Central Florida area. Back in 2012 the former MD Anderson Cancer Center opened it’s $1.3 million Gynecologic Cancer Center. Now more local systems are upping their offerings.
According to the Orlando Business Journal, here are some recent center center and oncology related construction projects in Central Florida:
- Orlando Health expects to debut a $25 million state of the art Proton Therapy Center in 2016; which has been under construction since the end of 2012.
- Florida Hospital East Orlando opened up their new $4 million radiation machine at it’s cancer center back in February.
- Halifax Health Medical Center’s Center for Oncology recently opened a survivor-ship clinic for post-therapy recovery at Twin Lakes Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
- Parrish Medical Center began the build-out of an outpatient oncology infusion facility in Titusville.
It’s nice to see so much commercial construction projects in the works! It’s even nicer when a good chunk of the projects are targeted to help people discover, fight, and hopefully overcome a difficult illness such as cancer.
