Facility Profile:

Established in 1908, Florida Hospital is one of the largest not-for-profit healthcare systems in the country, caring for more than a million patients each year. The 2,286-bed acute-care medical facility, comprised of nine hospitals, has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals in the country for the past 10 years. It serves as a community hospital for Greater Orlando and as a major tertiary referral hospital for Central Florida and much of the Southeast, the Caribbean and Latin America.

  2. Retail Services ─ Each hospital campus and several non-campus locations have retail venues which serve food to visitors and Florida Hospital employees. The menu is planned and prepared by professional culinary chefs, cooks, and teammates who ensure that the food is attractive, nourishing, and tasty.

The FPC uses a state-of-the-art 'cook-chill' system designed to cook foods and chill them rapidly to ensure freshness and safety. The FPC also has a full-service bakery where everything from bread and rolls to individual desserts and decorated cakes are prepared by professional pastry chefs 
  4. Clinical ─ Registered Dietitians (RDs) collaborate with doctors and nurses to facilitate healing our in-patients through nutritional assessment and intervention.
