I moved to poinciana from the north east where i lived, i had 3 hospitals with in a 5 mile radius it is disgusting how people look at a hospital as a money making business first and not value peoples life this is not a matter of competition people it is a matter of life and death. It is about saving someones life when the minutes are ticking, the op posers are just like killers thinking about themselves and there pockets and has no regards for human life. you should be embarrassed and a shame to show your self as an op poser to the building of a hospital which could in return save your own lives.

We need a hospital ASAP.What is the problem? There are tons of subdividions here and no hospital.God forbid,there's an Emergency.We'd be dead by the time we got to the nearest hospital.Osceola,Celebration and or St Cloud! Not to mention, all the 2 lane roads.And ALL the Traffic.I have a 4 year old.I am concerned if he has an issue where do I take him fast enough.Not to mention there's not enough gas stations either.So fill up your tank before you come to Poinciana.Thank God, we love our house.Everything else is less to be desired!Come to the 21st Century already!!!

That's what happens with poor planning and a "Make Money" at any cost attitude. Four Corners is also a mess and now Polk County leaders are scrambling to play catch up. It's just a mess all around. I hope it gets better. Hang in there as long as you can.
