With more than 1.8 million veterans calling Florida home, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recognized the need to build a new facility capable of providing the highest quality of healthcare and services to local veterans and their families in Central Florida. The new, over $665 million, state-of-the-art facility will increase accessibility to health care for approximately 400,000 of Central Florida’s veterans.

    The VA Medical Center at Lake Nona will be the first VA hospital to be built in the United States since 1995. The medical center will include at 134-bed inpatient diagnostic and treatment hospital, a 118-bed nursing home, a 60-bed domiciliary, an outpatient clinic, a veterans benefit mini service center and generous patient and visitor parking.
