By looking at Florida Hospital East Orlando today, with 225 beds, spacious patient care areas and warm, private rooms, it is hard to believe that it was once a 15-bed facility. Founded in 1941 as Orlando Osteopathic Hospital, and later renamed Orlando General Hospital, the hospital joined the Florida Hospital family in 1990 when it was acquired by Adventist Health System.
Florida Hospital East Orlando celebrated the completion of a 200,000 square-foot, $80 million hospital expansion project, in February 2007. The new patient tower allows for more outpatient services to be accessible on the hospital campus, features 80 new private patient rooms, an innovative hospital design, and enhances the patient experience.
Florida Hospital is dedicated to improving lives not only in Central Florida, but also around the world. We are committed to serving the health care needs of our patients with a holistic approach to heal the mind, body and spirit. We strive to be the hospital of choice for patients, physicians and employees. Over the last 100 years, Florida Hospital’s mission remains unchanged: to extend the healing ministry of Christ.
Our focus is on the whole person, and our mission is to provide care for the mind and spirit, as well as the body. In fact, Seventh-day Adventists believe that nothing is more vital than spiritual and emotional well-being, and Seventh-day Adventist healthcare is grounded in this tradition.The doctors, nurses and entire staff at Florida Hospital use CREATION Health as their guiding principle in the care and treatment of their patients. Each letter of C.R.E.A.T.I.O.N. stands for an important aspect of overall health and healing:
