AdventHealth Apopka has plans for a $26.3 million expansion that will add beds to the hospital.
Altamonte Springs-based nonprofit health system AdventHealth has started to build out the fifth floor of the 120-bed hospital with 38 new acute care beds and four dialysis bays. The work will bring the hospital to more than 158 licensed beds.
The hospital hit 6,900 admissions in 2022, up 20% since 2019.
The expansion will enable AdventHealth to offer care to more patients close to home, AdventHealth Apopka CEO Parker Pridgen said in a prepared statement.
“As our west Orange communities continue to grow, we are committed to keeping pace by adding specialty care to meet the needs of this community.”
The 30,321-square-foot space will be finished by May and will create 20 new jobs in the hospital.
