Surgery Services Open at Lake Nona VA Hospital


As part of its on-going activation effort the Orlando VA Medical Center at Lake Nona has relocated its surgical and medicine services from Lake Baldwin to Lake Nona.

Wednesday’s activation is the beginning of expanding ambulatory surgery and Endoscopic procedures at Lake Nona for Orlando’s more than 105,000 Veterans, including eight operating rooms and two Cystoscopy suites in surgical services.

The opening offers ambulatory surgeries for various surgical specialties, including ENT, general surgery, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Pain Management, Podiatry, Plastic Surgery, Urology, and Vascular Surgery.

Orlando’s Medicine Service includes eight endoscopy suites, which offer ambulatory procedures for Gastroenterology and Pulmonary Medicine.

“Today’s opening represents another milestone in our journey to fully activate this medical center for our Veterans,” said Timothy W. Liezert, medical center director. “Our surgical capabilities are core to the many services we offer Veterans, and we intend to keep moving forward in expanding services to meet the needs of Central Florida Veterans.”

The opening continues the Orlando VAMC’s aggressive efforts in opening its 134-bed hospital tower and Emergency Department, both set to open in early 2016.
