UCF medical-school hospital raises concerns
The University of Central Florida is proceeding with plans to build a teaching hospital despite objections and concerns being voiced by its two partners in the medical school—Florida Hospital and Orlando Health. Orlando Health CEO Sherrie Sitarik is set to meet Friday with UCF President John Hitt and ask for an economic feasibility study to determine whether it makes sense to build yet another hospital in southeast Orlando's Medical City. As it stands now, third- and fourth-year med-school students train at Orlando Health and Florida Hospital facilities.
