Florida Hospital Waterman recently celebrated a “Topping Out” ceremony with the placement of the building’s highest structural element. Members of the community were invited to visit the Tavares campus and sign the tower’s special beam.
Construction on the four-story tower began in July 2017 and should be completed by July 2019. It adds more than 111,000 square feet of patient care space, expands the emergency room department to 58 beds, and adds a 24-bed women and children’s unit on the second floor of the tower. Floors three and four will be shelled for future growth.
