Clinic activities will transfer to Orlando's first and the nation's largest - VA hospital in late 2013. Located in the Medical City at Lake Nona, the new VA hospital will provide state-of-the-art inpatient and day clinic capabilities to benefit more than 90,000 Veteran enrollees throughout its six neighboring counties.
