Tupperware Brands and Orlando Health officials jointly announced plans for a new $32 million free-standing emergency room and medical pavilion on Osceola Parkway, across from the new Tupperware SunRail station that opens in 2018.

"They want to be turning dirt by October," Tupperware Vice President Thomas Roehlk told GrowthSpotter on Tuesday, after the project was disclosed during Osceola County's annual State of the County banquet.
