Growing Population

Setting the pace... for a growing population.

Watson Clinic is honored to serve the Lakeland area and vast surrounding communities. Our growing number of specialties and services attract patients from both Florida coasts.

Nestled between lush Tampa Bay beaches and popular Orlando attractions, Lakeland is a growing city supported by a variety of robust businesses, diverse lifestyles, and young active families. Although the population continues to grow, the city’s cost of living and property taxes remain among the lowest in the state.

Lakeland rests within an hour of two of the nation’s best airports, Tampa and Orlando International, and is conveniently located near Interstate 4 (I-4) along the stretch of Florida’s High Tech Corridor. The area's centralized location ensures a healthy environment in which locally owned shops and restaurants can thrive, as well as the largest manufacturers and nationally-recognized companies such as Geico, FedEx, Publix Supermarkets and Rooms-to-Go.
Surrounded by a population of 250,000 people, Lakeland can accommodate the pleasures of city life, while never sacrificing the comforting intimacy of a family-friendly environment.
Lake Morton, one of Lakeland’s most picturesque lakes, is home to a bird
sanctuary that started with a pair of swans gifted from Queen Elizabeth II.
Swans are now an integral element of Lakeland’s unique image.
