Florida Hospital is pleased to announce that it has purchased property in Lake Mary to provide needed medical services in this community. The property is located on Rinehart Road and County Road 46A. At this point there are no definitive details about the project. We are in the process of exploring the feasibility of outpatient services that could be provided to the residents of the Lake Mary and surrounding communities. Michael Carroll , a hospital analyst with Clearwater-based Tribrook Healthcare Consultants Inc., said outpatient would make the most sense. With everything going on with health insurance carriers, probably some form of ambulatory medical office and outpatient center would make sense, Carroll said.

Done deal: Florida Hospital buys Rinehart Place for outpatient services
Charles LeMaistre, then-president of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, brought a small team of his faculty leaders to Orlando. They were seeking to create a partnership with this community’s physicians and hospitals to explore the concept of duplicating the methods of providing cancer treatments that had been developed over the preceding 50 years at MD Anderson. That so-called multidisciplinary approach, where every patient with cancer is treated by a team of medical professionals, was hardly practiced anywhere in Florida. That is, until MD Anderson arrived, and perceived (and real) competition stimulated every institution providing cancer care to ramp up cancer-treatment programs. After a number of reciprocal trips between Orlando and Houston following that 1989 visit, a group of eight physicians in Orlando and the administration of the hospital in which they practiced, the Orlando Regional Medical Center, bought into this concept, and a joint venture between ORMC and the Texas facility opened for business in January 1991.
