If ever you had an easy business decision to make, and one that would come with literally zero risk yet exponentially long-term positive ripple-effect payoff, it’s this one – may i humbly suggest approving Florida Hospital Winter Garden’s request to build a 100-bed Hospital adjacent to their free-standing Outpatient and Emergency Department facility.
i’ve been their patient. i’ve been their business advisor. And my wife and i have lived in Orlando for 32 years. We plan to die here as well. We are invested and committed in the Horizon West community where we’ve lived, six miles from their site, for 25 of those years.
Florida Hospital doesn’t lead the category – they ARE the category. A category of one.
“The skill to heal. The spirit to care.”
The skill to heal is fundamentally what all hospitals do and technology narrows the gap between competitors.
The spirit to care is where Florida Hospital clearly outdistances all others.
“To extend the healing ministry of Christ.”
If i had a wish for my community, it’s that all living in Horizon West would have the option to experience remarkably compassionate care.

One of the best sources, if not the best source, of vitamin D is sunshine.
Florida is nicknamed “The Sunshine State”.
There’s a reason we’ve lived here since 1984, the year after we married.
Of course there were downsides from moving away from home.
It’s nothing our ancestors hadn’t felt compelled to do throughout the centuries.
Taking risks is part of being a pioneer.
In personal leadership and in business leadership.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
Living in Central Florida, surrounded by Palm Trees and Sunshine is well, glorious. (That’s just wrong to write something like that in the middle of Winter, isn’t it?)
Alright, let’s try this – living next to Walt Disney World, with all it’s Theme parks, luxurious Disney resorts, stunning landscape, friendly Cast Members, spectacular entertainment, and first class dining is well, glorious. (Okay, strike two, right?)
Well, last night I began planning today’s work. It started with a vision for what I need to do today and how well it should be done.
Is there ever a day when we can not worry about delivering exceptional customer service, or as Disney labels it, magical Guest experiences? No seriously, Disney has a standard where 99 out of 100 is failure. There is never a day where mediocrity is acceptable. NEVER.
One of the secrets of great leaders is to begin the day’s work the night before.
