Orlando Medical City: Extra Donation To the New VA Memorial in Lake Nona

One of the wonderful new developments in Lake Nona and Orlando’s Medical City is the new VA Hospital which is nearing completion and should open soon.

However in addition to the new hospital there is a new Veterans Memorial that is opening alongside the facility. The new memorial costs around $3 million and recently received an anonymous donation of $300,000 towards the cost. The Central Florida Veterans Memorial Park Foundation, which is leading the effort to build the large granite monument, has already raised $2.1 million towards the project and the whole Lake Nona community is excited to see the memorial when it is finished. The foundation is now seeking donations for the remaining $900,000 to establish a fund that will pay for the memorial’s upkeep – find out more on their website.

The construction on the memorial broke ground in April and should be completed by November. It will include the names of more than 1,100 Central Floridians who died in every war from World War I through Afghanistan.

The new memorial is definitely a great focal point for the local community in Lake Nona and will surely be much visited when completed.
