Kissimmee, FL – Open for only 11 months, Poinciana Medical Center announces plans to expand their facilities and services in an effort to accommodate the growing healthcare needs of Poinciana and the surrounding communities. This $26 million project will increase the hospital’s size by 40,000 square feet, adding two floors and increasing the number of patient beds from 30 to 76. Along with these new all–private patient rooms, other facility upgrades include a 64 Slice CT, a 1,000–square–foot educational meeting space and additional patient/visitor parking.
“I’m very excited that we are able to grow so rapidly to meet the healthcare demand we’ve seen since we opened our doors last year,” said Joanna Conley, Chief Executive Officer of Poinciana Medical Center. “Along with the 10 bed expansion of our emergency department that is currently underway, these new plans for growth will make it possible for Poinciana Medical Center to continue to provide quality care, close to home for the residents of Osceola and Polk counties.”
Construction is slated to begin in late 2014 and expected to last 12 to 16 months.
