Our Story

Since our beginnings as Morrell Memorial Hospital, Lakeland Regional Health has provided more than a century of service to Lakeland and all communities across Central Florida. For the last 100 years, we have honored traditions, planned for the future and delivered healthcare our patients can count on.

As a catalyst for community health, not-for-profit Lakeland Regional Health is reaching beyond our hospital walls to promote wellness, education and discovery in new places and new ways, providing a wide range of inpatient and outpatient healthcare services at our Medical Center, Hollis Cancer Center and outpatient care locations.

It’s your health. It’s your choice. It’s our Promise.

We Promise to treasure, nurture and inspire ourselves, our team, our patients and families, and our community. Because we know that strong relationships are essential to provide exceptional care.

We Promise to deliver nationally recognized healthcare, strengthen the healthiest community in Florida and advance the future of healthcare.

We Promise to care for you in new places and new ways, offering more services outside our hospital walls and closer to your home.
