AdventHealth will break ground on its newest Lake County project, a 22,260-square-foot medical plaza on U.S. 441 near the intersection of Wolf Branch Road in Mount Dora. The two-story $13 million medical plaza, located at 19735 U.S. Hwy 441, will be the first of its kind in Lake County. It will house eight primary care physicians and will provide convenient walk-in primary care and extended office hours.
The plaza is located to care for the growing Sorrento and Mt. Plymouth areas, as well as Mount Dora. The contemporary and efficient design on the large property can accommodate expansion and add additional services, as the second floor will be shelled for future use.
“We considered many locations in the Golden Triangle area and noticed a true need here. We are confident this new medical plaza will give the surrounding residents increased access to excellent healthcare services,” said Abel Biri, Florida Hospital Waterman Chief Executive Officer. The Tavares hospital is also currently expanding its emergency department to keep up with the growing demand. The medical plaza's architect is Gresham Smith and the main contractor is Robins & Morton. Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2019.
