Not really, neither of the major hospital chains in the area (Orlando Health and Florida Health) is doing much hiring other than filling spots when and where necessary. Retail and Hospitality are seemingly the only industries doing a lot of hiring, primarily for part-time/no benefits hourly positions.

Demographically, Florida is comprised of a large number of large, diverse markets. In my opinion, the overall industrial health might look something like this:

UP
Medical/Healthcare
Hospitality/Service Sector (Tourism-related)
Retail
High Tech
College/Education
Recreational
Distribution

HANGING-ON or DECLINING
Banking/Finance
Construction
Manufacturing

If you want to dig-in a little deeper, the U.S. Statistical Abstract provides metrics by state for a broad cross-section of U.S. Industries: Income, Expenditures, Poverty, & Wealth - The 2012 Statistical Abstract - U.S. Census Bureau
