The negative association of "hospital" is part of it, as is the idea that a hospital is a building. A lot of these health care systems increasingly rely on their network of affiliated and/or employed physicians  as their primary pipeline for getting patients. Slapping the name "hospital" on the shingle of a neighborhood primary care physician can be confusing. Saying Dr. Smith is part of Orlando Health or Adventist Health is more easily understood than saying they or their office are part of a "hospital". 

Welcome to the Orlando forum - glad to have you witrh us!

New name coming for Florida Hospital in 2019: AdventHealth. Wonder what the new signage will look like?

From the Sentinel

So we have a logo:

https://adventhealth.com/florida?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=brand_brand_fl_cs_na&utm_term=advent health&utm_content=64902153104&hcmacid=a054100000hkybz

I must say it's an improvement over the one for Florida Hospital, which didn't seem to mean anything to anyone but the graphic artist who created it. They do seem to be playing up their ties to the Adventists more so than they have in years.

People come here for all sorts of reasons but usually because they believe there's a good future to be had, in this case up in Lake Mary:

OK, if you've been putting it off or just waiting like JFW for the big party, today's the day! Polls are open 7am-7pm and not only are there races that require you to be registered as a Democrat or Republican, there are also huge nonpartisan ones like OC Mayor that everyone can vote in.

So, if you haven't, GO VOTE!

Rent is higher for Orlando apartments than Tampa or Jax but Tampa continues to build more apartments:

https://www.tampabay.com/news/business/Tampa-Bay-leads-Orlando-and-Jacksonville-in-apartment-construction_171698145?template=amp

From the St. Pete Times

The Times makes the case Tampa Bay is larger (which it is) but Orlando's growing faster (TB 11% vs Orlando 17.5%).

I was in Tampa last week, between downtown and Ibor, and I noticed a lot of those mid-rise apartment building projects that have been built the past decade and more recently, and some that were u/c.  Per capita, it does make sense; Hillsborough is growing too.  

it's a little scary that there are so many renters versus homeowners.  wasn't that the case in the Late '90's. when they built Waverly then began converting it to condos when the condo trend was occurring?  Maybe it's a cyclical thing...

Apartments seem to work ok for the most part. It's when they go condo that things seem to crash and burn. I assume it's because, as long as you're growing, it's easy to evict and replace. Also , with apartments one firm is tending to things instead of the silly battles of HOAs.

As far as growth goes, Orlando is growing 1/3 faster than Tampa (truth be told, it's probably more now.) If we were Ocala and growing that fast, that would be one thing. With 2.5 million folks, that's YUGE.

Orlando Weekly picks up on an article from Forbes about the state of buying, selling and renting in the metro.

Another interesting stat in the article is that we grew even faster from 2013-2018 (14%) than the Census Bureau thinks we did from 2010-2017 (13.7%) Watch for us to break into the Top 20 MSA's for the 2020 census!

OMB has updated its MSAs and CSAs. There were a few slight changes in general. Orlando’s MSA wasn’t touched but on page 140, its CSA added Wauchula and Lakeland’s MSAs, which adds close to 750,000 people to Orlando’s CSA. Combined statistical areas are irrelevant to me but it’s still pretty interesting that Lakeland is viewed by the White House as more in sync with Orlando than Tampa (which doesn’t have a CSA for some odd reason).
