The Winter Park Health Foundation (WPHF) has moved to a newly constructed permanent home at 220 Edinburgh Drive, Winter Park, just south of Aloma Avenue, near Winter Park Memorial Hospital.
It is the first permanent home for the Foundation, which in the past has rented office space.
“We decided it would be a wise use of resources to establish a permanent home for the Winter Park Health Foundation on property we already owned,” said Allan E. Keen, chairman of the WPHF Board of Trustees.
“It demonstrates our long-term commitment to this community, and our commitment to making a positive impact on the health and well-being of Winter Park and the surrounding communities,” he added.
WPHF also owns the nearby Elinor & T. William Miller, Jr. Center for Older Adult Services which is operated by Easter Seals Florida and the Peggy & Philip B. Crosby Wellness Center, operated by the Central Florida YMCA. It also owns the Center for Health and Wellness in Oviedo, also operated by the Central Florida YMCA.
The new building has a Mediterranean design to give it a residential rather than a commercial look. Special features include the high-pitched Spanish-tile roof, a balcony and a decorative fountain attached to the building. The two-story building was designed by the Nasrallah Fine Architectural Design group in Winter Park. It was built by Shoemaker Construction, and the interior design was done by Jennifer Ramski, of Ramski & Company.
Although the address has changed, individual phone numbers and email addresses have not changed.
