Florida Hospital Orlando

Florida Hospital North, located in Winter Park has a special place in my heart. I am proud to say that this Winter Park hospital is one of the best in the state. Having helped guide my mother through stage 4 cancer treatment that included chemo therapy, the staff, doctors and facilities are simply the best. Providing additional services like the Walt Disney Pavillion specializing in treating children, and the new Sun Rail has helped make the commute to the hospital even easier for Winter Park residents.
