I'm pretty sure people are having trouble finding good jobs in lots of places right now due to high unemployment. Are Orlando's problems worse than the average, sure, maybe, and whatever.

Well, what about Accounting and Finance for all these places. Admin/clerical jobs that maybe would pay $30-35,000 with benefits. Not to mention, maybe this will attract other employers outside of the medical field.

I'm sure these support jobs will be created, but the amount will probably be minimal in comparison to the actual medical job. My point is that as a Medical City unless your in the Medical field I wouldn't expect to find a ton of other professional job creation. Again this is all relatively speaking. For every 1 non medical professional job created they will probably create 10 medical jobs.

If this were true medical care would be MUCH cheaper.

I don't know the exact ratio, but having worked in a large hospital, I can assure you it's much closer to 1:1 then 10:1.

That's what I was thinking. I've been in the hospital setting and you have SO MANY people there without any medical certifications. There are receptionists, finance/accounting people, intake, overnight personnel. One guy I used to work with did intake at the hospital part-time, made pretty good money and definately didn't have any medical certifications.

Also, what about cafeteria workers, janitors, ER valet etc...I'm hoping that these won't me minimum wage jobs??

I stand corrected..but in a good way. It appears this could be a real shot in the arm for the entire area than. I hope this all pans out as planned.

Lots of brand new quality townhomes 10mins away from the Medical Center off of the 417. Good prices since it is a buyers market. Easy approval. I am an unaffiliated proud homeowner. Crucial businesses nearby and area has room for expanding. This section of Orlando is starting to really grow. Many townhomes need 2 car garages and more privacy.
