Almost 500 Veterans, employees, politicians and community partners gathered Sunday to commemorate the construction of the new Orlando VA Medical Center with a Topping Out ceremony.
The day was touted to be important for the VA and the local partners in what will be called “Medical City”, however, it was especially important for every Veteran living in East Central Florida.
“This new hospital underscores our commitment to providing the best quality health care to our Veterans. The words on the front of the building reaffirm the honor, appreciation, respect and dedication we have for our Veterans.” said Joe Battle, the medical center’s associate director and construction executive.

The facility will introduce the new hospital to the community and showcase the transformation of family-centered pediatric care delivery in the 21st century. The NCH Preview Center will also serve as a test site for technology, equipment and furnishings, as well as a place to recruit quality professionals and support the training and orientation of new hospital personnel.
“This is an exciting day for Nemours and the patient-families that have helped us design the preview center and hospital,” said Roger Oxendale, CEO, Nemours Children’s Hospital and Senior Vice President of Nemours. “Parents are experts at caring for their own children and we continue to listen to their needs. This new test-bed of ideas exemplifies how together as a team, we can produce efficiencies and better outcomes for medically complex children.”
