The Orlando VA Medical Center (Station #675) was officially established effective October 1, 2006, when it was approved as a new VA facility. The Orlando VA healthcare system currently includes a 120-bed Community Living Center (CLC), a 60 bed Domiciliary, and VA's largest comprehensive outpatient clinic at the Orlando site, two (2) large comprehensive, satellite outpatient clinics in Daytona Beach and Viera, and five (5) Community-Based Outpatient Clinics in Kissimmee, Leesburg, Clermont, Lake Nona and Orange City, FL.
Orlando's new Medical City is under construction, shining an international spotlight on the area's growing life sciences/biotech sector. The VA has joined with other life science partners to create a new medical destination for research, education and patient care. With the recent opening of the University of Central Florida's new College of Medicine, the building of several prestigious medical research institutes, and the construction of the new Orlando VA Medical Center and a highly-specialized Children's Hospital, Orlando is rapidly becoming a prime destination for healthcare professionals and patients seeking state-of-the-art care, with the highest standards in patient safety.
Orlando is recognized as a family-oriented area, with a warm, sunny climate, beautiful beaches, abundant housing options, no state income tax, and many local entertainment attractions/outdoor activities readily available. The Orlando VA system is associated with the University of Central Florida and other local community colleges, with active affiliations in allied health programs, such as Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical/Occupational Therapy, and Social Work.
