OVIEDO, FL (November 1, 2018) – Batson-Cook Company commenced construction today for a Florida Hospital free-standing emergency department on Red Bug Lake Road, the second such facility the general contractor has begun in recent weeks for the healthcare services provider as it expands services in the east Orlando area.
The Oviedo free-standing emergency department, set for completion in the third quarter of 2019, is getting underway just seven weeks after Batson-Cook broke ground for a nearly identical facility located on Lake Pickett Road at Colonial Drive.
The Oviedo facility will be a 24-bed emergency department providing comprehensive emergency medical services - including diagnostic imaging, a full-service laboratory, and pharmacy services - to both adult and pediatric patients. The one-story building will encompass 18,200 square feet, and surface parking for 94 vehicles will be provided. Construction costs total $9.5 million.
The building, which will be concrete tilt-wall construction with metal panels, will feature Florida Hospital’s signature spire rising above the entrance. The site is located at 8000 Red Bug Lake Road near Oviedo Mall Boulevard.
Architect for the project is Hunton Brady of Orlando.
