The New Hub Of Health & Wellness That Is Lake Nona

As we approach the holiday season, health and wellness are topics on everyone’s minds. Also known as Medical City, Lake Nona is home to organizations doing incredible groundbreaking work in this area.  

People often use the terms health and wellness interchangeably, but they are quite different concepts. According to the World Health Organization, health is “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity,” and wellness is considered a “positive approach to living.”

Lake Nona is a community of early adopters, meaning that most residents support new technologies, making it a perfect place for businesses in the health and wellness sectors to be innovative and try new things. 

Some of the best medical facilities in the industry are located here. These include Nemours Children’s Hospital, UCF Lake Nona Hospital, and the Orlando VA Hospital. There are also many businesses in the healthcare industry, including Guidewell Innovation Center, the UCF Health Sciences Campus, the Lake Nona Performance Club, the Inspired Performance Institute, and many others.

Exploring all aspects of health and wellness is essential as it is more than just physical health. It includes physical, mental, and emotional health, the environment, social circles, and even spiritual wellness. This region is one of the few communities that incorporates all those dimensions into helping someone improve their overall well-being.

The Lake Nona community also includes medical professionals collaborating with others and integrating a holistic approach with traditional medicine to improve health and wellness. A great example of this is the Lake Nona Performance Club. The state-of-the-art facility integrates traditional medical services and innovative lifestyle programming to pursue the whole person’s well-being. The region is also filled with trails, dozens of parks, and many community events that both encourage an active lifestyle and protect precious green space simultaneously. 

People from all over visit healthcare facilities here to access the best quality, cutting-edge care through integrative services and ultramodern technology. Whether recovering from a procedure, physical illness, mental illness, or just trying to get healthier, you can find the help you need in Lake Nona.
