WESLEY CHAPEL — A new hospital is in the works for the master-planned community springing up around Wiregrass Mall.
Orlando Health on Monday announced it is seeking permission from Pasco County to build a 300-bed multi-story hospital and wellness campus at the corner of State Road 56 and Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard. It expects to close on the purchase of about 35 acres this fall.
The $300 million first phase of the project would include an emergency room, observation unit and intensive care unit housed in a five-story tower, Orlando Health officials said. Construction is expected to begin late this year with a provisional opening date of the end of 2024.
