Oviedo is getting a new hospital.
Oviedo Medical Center LLC, owned by Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HCA), submitted its application back in April to build a new 80-bed hospital in Oviedo. The site is on 48 acres in Oviedo, near the intersection of State Road 417 and Red Bug Lake Road, and is the site of a $9.7 million free-standing emergency department.
As the city of Oviedo and the Florida Department of Transportation inch closer toward flattening much of the town’s historic core, several downtown business owners are determined to not let their livelihoods crumble once the buildings they now occupy are knocked down.
Zembower, 53, and other Chuluota residents are now concerned that a plan to build nearly 5,000 homes in the Lake Pickett Road area in adjacent Orange County will bring thousands of additional cars into that corner of Seminole County, spoil the waterways and clear the way for more development. To do this, Orange County commissioners would have to rezone the land to allow more houses.
Project could add 5,000 homes Local opposition continues to grow as the concept for a 2,300-acre Orange County development on the doorstep of Seminole County takes shape.
On a chilly but beautiful Saturday morning, the visitors at Good Neighbors Farmers Market are strolling through the wooded grounds, bags of strawberries, peppers, cucumbers, raw honey, kettle corn and other treasures in hand. Meanwhile, there are giggles, coos and squeals of delight from children and adults alike as they say their hellos to dairy cows, piglets and chicks. Families are enjoying leisurely lunches at wooden picnic tables beneath the trees.
