OVIEDO, Fla., Nov. 1, 2018 — Florida Hospital leaders broke ground today on an emergency department that will expand the health care system’s network to better serve residents of Oviedo and surrounding communities in Seminole County.
The emergency department will have 24 patient rooms (including two pediatric-friendly rooms to make ER visits less stressful for young patients); respiratory therapy; diagnostic imaging, including CT scans, X-ray and ultrasound; and a full-service laboratory.
The facility, slated to open in fall 2019, will be staffed by a comprehensive clinical team including board-certified emergency physicians and emergency nurses.
“We are excited to add this ER to our growing network of care,” said Jennifer Wandersleben, CEO of Florida Hospital’s Winter Park Memorial Hospital. “Many Oviedo residents already entrust physicians within the Florida Hospital network with their health care, and we are making it easier to access our emergency services. As we transition to AdventHealth, our mission is to make our patients feel whole — by treating the mind, body and spirit — in a setting that’s close to home.”
The approximately 19,000-square-foot facility, which will be known as AdventHealth Oviedo ER, will be located at 8100 Red Bug Lake Road.
