South Lake Hospital Growth

View an aerial map of all expansion plans.

Main Expansion Information

In early 2016, South Lake Hospital, in affiliation with Orlando Health, announced extensive expansion plans that include a free-standing emergency department in the busy south Clermont area, known as Four Corners, and an urgent care facility in its northern service area.  We will also expand the capacity of our hospital’s emergency and surgical departments on our Clermont Campus.

We’re expanding our services so that patients in all areas of south Lake County have improved access points to health care.  Our plans are driven both by current needs and projected future needs, based on the accelerating growth of our county.  Lake County’s population is projected to increase more than 12 percent in the next four years, according to 2010 census data.

Main Campus

South Lake Hospital ED and Surgical Services

Fall 2016, construction crews will break ground on additional exam rooms and several new observation rooms in our emergency department, nearly doubling our treatment capacity. The project comes at a time when the hospital is treating nearly 12,000 more patients in the emergency department than it did just five years ago.

As part of the same campus expansion, we will add three additional operating suites and upgrade our four existing suites, adding new technologies and equipment. The upgrades will make it possible for surgeons to treat more complicated cases and meet volume demands.

North Campus

Urgent Care Center

The North Campus will include a health pavilion approximately 13 miles north of its Clermont campus, where U.S. Route 27 intersects with the northbound entrance to Florida’s Turnpike.  This pavilion will initially include an urgent care facility, outpatient imaging, laboratory and rehabilitation services, as well as space for physician offices. It has been purposefully designed to accommodate more advanced services as the need in this area grows.

Free Standing Emergency Department

In the Four Corners area in south Clermont, a facility to be named the Joe H. and Loretta Scott Health Pavilion at Southlake will include a full-service emergency department staffed by board-certified physicians. The pavilion will also offer outpatient imaging, laboratory and rehabilitation services and has been designed to allow for more services to be added in the future. The pavilion will be located at the juncture of U.S. Highway 192 and U.S. Route 27 and is part of a master-planned development with physician offices, restaurants and residential apartments being developed by Exploria Resorts.
