Florida Hospital Pledges $1.5 Million To Downtown University Campus
Florida Hospital is pledging $1.5 million toward a new downtown university campus.
The campus will serve 7,700 University of Central Florida and Valencia College students.
Florida Hospital says the money will help fund a new academic building. Leaders say they also plan to work toward improving health care in surrounding neighborhoods.
The campus will be part of a new Creative Village that will include housing, shops and restaurants. Orlando and the village’s developers have proposed a $75 million deal that includes land, infrastructure improvements and parking concessions.
Orange County has pledged $3 million toward the campus. The Orlando Magic and CFE Federal Credit Union have also pledged support.
If it’s approved the campus is scheduled to open in the fall 2018.
