Florida Hospital Waterman, Jacobs, Robins & Morton, Gresham Smith & Partners and honored guests joined together to celebrate the structural topping out of the Florida Hospital Waterman Emergency Department Expansion and New Patient Tower located in Tavares, Florida.

The $70 million expansion and renovation project will add more than 111,000 square feet of patient care space to the hospital, including an expansion of the emergency department to 58 beds and a 24-bed women and children's unit. Floors three and four of the new patient tower will be shelled for future growth, and the structure will support an additional expansion up to six floors. The project will more than double the hospital's emergency department capacity as well as expand women's services, pediatrics and support future growth. The project also includes the addition of a sub-grade connecting tunnel, a connecting structure, and required MEP capacity upgrades to the existing Central Energy Plant.

"This is a big day for Florida Hospital Waterman," said Abel Biri, Florida Hospital Waterman CEO. "As our community continues to grow, and more Lake County residents choose us for their care, we have expanded to meet that demand. We are committed to delivering the most advanced and efficient care possible in our community and we are blessed to have the opportunity to build on our historic commitment for the future."
The expansion and renovation is scheduled to be completed in October 2019.
