Center for Health & Wellbeing Construction on Schedule

In spite of the almost daily summer thunderstorms, construction on the new Center for Health & Wellbeing in Winter Park is on schedule and opening is anticipated late 2018.

At nearly 80,000 square feet, the new Center for Health and Wellbeing (Center) will be a one-stop location for wellness, fitness and medicine.  The intentionally integrated facility will inspire healthy living, reverse chronic diseases and increase longevity.  The programs and services offered at the Center will emphasize taking care of not just your body, but also your mind and spirit.

The Center is located on a 4.2-acre site owned by WPHF near Winter Park Memorial Hospital.  Part of The Winter Park Health Foundation’s (WPHF) development plans for the Center include roadway and traffic flow improvements in this vicinity of Winter Park.  This phase of construction is complete.

Approximately 70% of the structural steel for construction of the Center is already in place.  Topping out is projected to take place late September or early October.  Jack Jennings & Sons is the general contractor for the Center.

Earlier this year, WPHF announced its partnership with Florida Hospital on construction of the facility and the provision of medical services and wellness programs when it opens.  The goal is to help people of all ages and fitness levels live longer and live better.
