Poinciana, FL, hospital backers turn out
Supporters of a new hospital in Poinciana, FL, are complaining about the emergency medical response currently available to the community of about 70,000 residents. More than 225 people gathered at the Poinciana Community Center to complain to attorneys representing the proposed hospital about delayed responses from nearby hospitals. Osceola Regional Medical Center in Kissimmee received Florida approval for the Poinciana hospital in 2007, but officials with St. Cloud Regional Medical Center filed an appeal that could delay—or stop—construction in Poinciana.
