For this, it is a smart move by Governor Rick Scott to sign a new bill that persuades many expectant moms to either preserve or donate their newborn’s cord blood.

At Arnold Palmer Hospital, there are two physicians join the circle of pediatrics. These are Alejandro Jordan-Villegas, MD and Dr. Karoly Horvath, MD. Villegas is the newest member of Infectious Disease Practice and completed his medical training at Universidad del Valle while Horvath was a director of Nemours Celiac Center and Gastroenterology Laboratory before coming to Orlando.
