Location

The main Orlando Health campus is located in beautiful downtown Orlando. The City of Orlando is one of the most popular tourist destinations in North America. Consequently, it offers tremendous recreational and cultural activities. There are a multitude of golf courses, lakes for fishing and water sports, as well as professional basketball, hockey and arena football teams. The Central Florida area offers easy access to other large cities such as Tampa and the Gulf Coast as well as a short drive to the East Coast beaches.

As with all large metropolitan cities, Orlando provides multiple centers for fine shopping and dining. Because of the family oriented industries located in Central Florida, including Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando and Sea World, Orlando is ideal for family life.
