A wealth of trusted healthcare destinations

When you or a loved one is in need of healthcare, you want a local option you can count on—and fortunately for Lake County residents, there are plenty of trusted institutions to choose from.

Local centers of healthcare include AdventHealth Waterman, providing a range of services including emergency and urgent care, children’s care and much more. (Additionally, AdventHealth Waterman received an A rating by The Leapfrog Group for its commitment to hospital safety.)

LifeStream Behavioral Center in Leesburg, for example, offers inpatient and outpatient opportunities, child and adult rehabilitative services and much more for truly well-rounded care.

Supporting local HEROs

Here in Lake County, we are extremely grateful for the healthcare workers—and all personnel working in healthcare settings—as they continue to treat patients affected by COVID-19. Now, these personnel (including those working at select area hospitals, like UF Health Leesburg) are invited to participate in the Healthcare Worker Exposure Response & Outcomes (HERO) Registry, which is designed to record experiences of real-life workers as institutions work to develop and strengthen their response to this health crisis, and future needs.

Combining health, fitness and family fun

Studies show that exposure to fresh air, greenery and aquatic landscapes can have a positive effect on our overall well-being (and it’s no surprise that Lake County is abundant in all three!). Plus, Lake County has plenty of options for families and individuals who want to improve their physical health with outdoor activities like walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding or enjoying fast-paced, challenging water sports, to name just a few. Every bit of exercise adds up to a healthier you—and here in Lake County, there are endless options for achieving the mind-and-body wellness you want.
