iCAMR CEO: ‘Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center will be a think tank for small and big businesses’
Chester Kennedy didn’t pay attention when the initial rumblings began about Osceola County and the University of Central Florida wanting to create a high-tech, smart sensor facility. But that changed once the former Lockheed Martin Corp. executive noticed how it could greatly impact small businesses. “When they started talking about building a design center — a place where I can take my idea and have a product custom-built — now I’m interested,” Kennedy said
What began as a two-story, 30-bed hospital about two and a half years ago in Osceola County is now a four-story, 76-bed hospital.
Poinciana Medical Center on Nov. 17 opened two more floors and 46 new private-patient beds across 40,000 square feet.
The hospital, owned by HCA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: HCA), announced its plans for the $26 million expansion in June 2014, as previously reported by Orlando Business Journal. The project also expanded cafeteria seating and parking areas, and added a community classroom on the first floor, according to a press release.

Rubén Torres, who founded the Puerto Rico-based airline in 1976, now lives in Kissimmee and has a deal to co-locate with Quantem, a fixed-base operator at the municipal airport. The airline will offer a combination of charter service to and from the Caribbean, cargo flights and commuter flights throughout the state.

Infinity Medical Engineering, a medical device research, development and manufacturing company, will open at 301 Church Street, near historic downtown Kissimmee, and will house a 10,000 square foot medical clean room.

They also own blood analysis equipment which provides results in seven (7) minutes, as opposed to the 48-hour wait time that now exists.
