Kissimmee, FL – With a new year comes a newfound commitment to health and wellbeing. Osceola Regional Medical Center is kicking the New Year off with a bang, by opening its much anticipated, 64 bed patient tower. The first patients were treated in the new 115,000-square-foot tower on January, 7th.
Twelve of the 64 rooms are designated for the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (ICU); 18 are for patients needing an intermediate level of care; 14 are for oncology patients, and the other 20 will be utilized by the Orthopedics & Spine Center.
With the tower’s opening, the bed count of Osceola Regional (already the largest bed capacity hospital in the county) has increased from 257 to 321. The hospital invested more than $7 million on technology and medical equipment for the new building. Each of the contemporary-styled, spacious private rooms was designed with patients and their families in mind.
“The tower represents Osceola Regional’s commitment to the health of the community, and is an investment in the people of Kissimmee, Osceola County, and South Orlando,” said Bob Krieger, Chief Executive Officer at Osceola Regional Medical Center.
