AdventHealth To Expand Downtown Emergency Department


AdventHealth has plans to further expand on its main downtown Orlando hospital campus with additional emergency department space.

The health care provider filed documents to build a 45,000-square-foot expansion of the Ginsburg Tower’s emergency department. The expansion will include 21 adult emergency bays, a resuscitation room and three isolation rooms, AdventHealth spokesman David Breen told Orlando Business Journal.

The cost of the project and a construction timeline were not immediately available.

The move follows the health care provider announcing a 13,200-square-foot expansion to its cardiovascular institute back in October. That expansion, dubbed the Center for Living, includes a genomic center focused on cardiovascular issues. Construction is expected to start in first-quarter 2019 and be completed by the end of 2020.

The Alan Ginsburg Family Foundation donated $3 million for the facility. The foundation, named after area real estate developer Alan Ginsburg, previously donated $20 million in 2007 toward the $255 million, 440-bed Ginsburg Tower.

AdventHealth’s parent company, Adventist Health System, is the second-largest employer in the area with more than 83,000 employees for 2018. The health care system operates nearly 50 hospital campuses and hundreds of care sites across the U.S. in almost a dozen states and serves more than 5 million patients each year.

Founded in 1908, the $3.36 billion nonprofit AdventHealth’s holdings in the area include:

  • 10 local hospitals in downtown Orlando, Altamonte Springs, Winter Park, east Orlando, Celebration, Kissimmee, Longwood and Apopka
  • The freestanding emergency room in Winter Garden, which now has a 72,000-square-foot, three-story medical office building and plans to build a 100-bed inpatient hospital tower there.
  • 24 Centra Care (urgent care) centers and 2 Kids Urgent Care centers
  • 24 imaging and diagnostic centers
  • 15 Lab Care locations
  • 18 Sports Medicine & Rehab locations2,500-plus doctors in 123 medical specialties

Florida Hospital To Expand Cardiovascular Institute

Florida Hospital plans to expand its cardiovascular institute in downtown Orlando by 13,200 square feet.

The expansion, will include a center for genomics, will be called the Center for Living. It is expected to care for more than 8,000 cardiovascular patients during its first three years of operation.

Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2019, with completion slated for the end of 2020. Birmingham, Ala.-based Brasfield & Gorrie LLC is the contractor for the project, while Orlando-based HuntonBrady Architects is the architect, said Florida Hospital spokesman David Breen.

Alan Ginsburg Family Foundation donated $3 million for the facility. The foundation, named after area real estate developer Alan Ginsburg, previously donated $20 million in 2007 toward a $255 million, 440-bed patient tower called the Ginsburg Tower at Florida Hospital.

“We appreciate the Ginsburg family for their generosity and continued commitment to advancing health care in Central Florida,” Duane Davis, chief medical officer of Florida Hospital’s institutes, said in a prepared statement. “The Center for Living will create an environment that combines our diverse cardiovascular services with genomics and wellness programs, elevating our care and strengthening our wholistic approach to healing.”

Florida Hospital CEO Daryl Tol previously told Orlando Business Journal that genomic care would be central to the health care provider’s services moving forward. “Genomic health care will impact all of the care across our system. We will have a specific geographic location for the Center for Genomic Health at AdventHealth Orlando, which is now Florida Hospital Orlando. We will have a focused team of experts.”

Along with its future name change to AdventHealth in January, Florida Hospital has multiple projects in the development pipeline for the area.

For example, Florida Hospital plans to build a 300,000-square-foot, 100-bed patient tower and a medical office building to go with its freestanding emergency department in Winter Garden. The proposed seven-story facility, which does not yet have a construction timeline, is expected to create 700 jobs when completed.
