Medical complex to rise in Polk County, FL

Orlando Sentinel, June 18, 2008
A Central and Southwest Florida developer hopes to tap into Polk County, FL's growing and aging population by building a $250 million medical center. The center will include an assisted and independent living community, a fitness center, medical offices, and a pharmacy. Representatives from the company said its neighbor, the 142-bed Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center, will help lure patients to the medical facility because the hospital plans to provide physical therapy and other healthcare services at the new site.
