The Orlando Health Medical Pavilion – St. Cloud located on the corner of U.S. Highway 192 and Budinger Avenue is now officially opened to the public.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Monday, July 27, with Brent Burish, president of Orlando Health St. Cloud Hospital; Thibaut van Marcke, senior vice president, Orlando Health Southeast Region, and president of Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital; and Mayor Nathan Blackwell, city of St. Cloud to unveil the new facility.
“This is truly an exciting time for Orlando Health St. Cloud Hospital,” said Burish. “As more of our neighbors choose Orlando Health St. Cloud, we’re continuing to invest in services that advance care and better our community’s health. The specialty services inside this medical pavilion will make it easier for our patients to manage their healthcare closer to home.”
The 50,000 square feet, two-story building on the hospital’s campus comprises the St. Cloud Medical Group physician practices, which includes both specialty-care practices and primary care offices. Ancillary hospital departments have also moved into the new space, which features space for private retail, new outpatient services, and private physician offices.
By late August 2020, a walk-in clinic will open with extended hours to provide medical services for minor or acute illness. An outpatient lab is set to open at the same time.
Van Marcke stated Orlando Health is committed to providing superior care to patients across Central Florida.
“Our goal is to plan for the future and to make healthcare more accessible throughout Central Florida. This new medical pavilion is a key touchpoint that will help us improve experience and outcomes for our patients in St. Cloud and Osceola County,” he said.
Florida-based Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate developed the new medical pavilion. The facility was built with input from the City of St. Cloud to become part of the city’s Medical Arts District designation.
"We are excited to finally welcome this new facility to St. Cloud as it will expand access to high-quality healthcare to families and other individuals within our community,” added Mayor Blackwell. “I am certain that the Orlando Health Medical Pavilion – St. Cloud will become an integral part of our healthcare ecosystem.”
