Orlando Health and Visit Orlando, the Official Tourism Association, have created an alliance that will offer health-related benefits to millions of Orlando visitors in an effort to promote healthy travel and wellness within the community.
The not-for-profit healthcare organization has been designated as The Official Health and Wellness Partner of Visit Orlando, and their collaboration opens up a newly established concierge telephone number which can be accessed for “visitor-specific wellness tips and individualized health resources.”
Tourists and organizations who are members of Visit Orlando can call 321-265-4200 to connect with information on local medical resources, including emergency care, urgent care, and where to access virtual visits.
“This new partnership allows us to seamlessly connect both leisure guests and meetings groups with Orlando Health’s medical experts to make healthy travel more accessible,” said Casandra Matej, president & chief executive officer, Visit Orlando. “Orlando has been a leader in healthy meetings for the past several years and with Orlando Health as our official Health and Wellness Partner, we are elevating the service and resources we provide groups to ensure Orlando remains a top choice for meetings and events.”
Detailed information can be found on OrlandoHealth.com/VisitOrlando, including information for event planners who would like to customize health solutions for their conference and attendees via the upcoming Orlando Health Virtual Care Center. The 24-hour virtual visit clinic will open later in 2022 on the first floor of the Orange County Convention Center’s west concourse.
The virtual clinic will also be staffed by Orlando Health clinicians during major conventions.
“Orlando Health has been integral in helping to support our travel and tourism industry throughout the pandemic and beyond,” said Thibaut van Marcke, senior vice president of Orlando Health’s southeast region. “This new alliance with Visit Orlando reinforces our commitment to provide high quality health-related options and medical services to the millions of travelers who visit our area and to an industry that is vital to our community and our state.”
