The 130,000-square-foot center is one block from the Amway Center on a nearly 4-acre site at South Division Avenue and West Central Boulevard.
The Magic portion of the facility features two full-sized basketball courts, an elevated balcony that overlooks them, a large team “family room,” a full kitchen complete with enhanced nutrition offerings, an expansive player locker room and top training and recovery technology such as altitude chamber and hydrotherapy equipment. The inside of the building is equipped with Violet Defense, an ultraviolet disinfection technology.

“This center is a game-changer, and the investment speaks to how much we care for the well-being of our players and for those that work hard every day to provide them a platform to reach their full potential,” Magic President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman said.
AdventHealth’s medical hub section of the facility measures 33,000 square feet and focuses on whole-person health and sports science for elite athletes and the broader community. Services will include orthopedics, primary care, sports medicine, imaging, rehabilitation and sports performance. Patients will also have access to AdventHealth’s network of sports-trained gastroenterologists, cardiologists, and sleep, psychology and nutrition experts.
“AdventHealth and the Orlando Magic have a shared a longtime commitment to inspiring and helping our neighbors be the healthiest they can be,” said President and CEO of AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division Randy Haffner. “Through our partnership, we’ve cared for Central Florida in a variety of ways, and I’m excited for this new opportunity to expand our philosophy of whole-person care to whole-athlete care.
"Whether you’re working to get back to playing in the yard with your grandkids, completing your first 5K or dreaming of going pro, our sports medicine experts are ready to support your personal health and athletic goals. The AdventHealth Training Center is a resource for all, and I’m excited for this next chapter in our partnership.”
The Magic and AdventHealth awarded $17 million worth of design and construction contracts to 33 local minority and women-owned business enterprises for the project, about 32% of the awarded opportunities.
