In this episode of the Inspiring Wholeness podcast, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer joins Doug Harcombe, CEO, AdventHealth Central Florida South Market/AdventHealth Lake Nona, to explore plans for the “Medical City.” They talk population growth, access to care, health tourism, innovation and the power of collaborative endeavors.

Lake Nona is the perfect community for AdventHealth’s new “hospital of the future,” which is expected to open in 2026, according to Harcombe. “If you want the world’s most recognized physician or high-quality health care, you don’t have to go anywhere else. You can stay right here in Central Florida, he said. “And we’re designing Lake Nona and our health system network connectivity to help deliver on that.”

Dyer added, “We’ve become a medical destination, and it’s combined in a couple of ways. We have high quality health care. If you’re in Orlando, you don’t need to search anywhere else for whatever medical treatment you may need.”

In this episode, you’ll learn:

· How Lake Nona evolved from cow pastures to one of the fastest growing health and life sciences clusters in the nation

· AdventHealth’s goal to become a health care destination for patients from around the world

· Integrating innovative technology, from surgical robotic platforms to incisionless surgeries, into patient care
