AdventHealth Winter Garden opened its new inpatient tower today, a $229.5 million expansion that includes all private rooms and the ability to provide critical services for residents in fast-growing West Orange County (Florida).
The five-story tower has 80 private rooms and space for new services, including orthopedics, advanced gynecology, cardiology, gastroenterology, general and robotic surgery, neurology, spine health, colorectal, and urology. The expansion adds about 227,000 square feet to the campus in Winter Garden.
“We are thrilled to bring inpatient services to the city of Winter Garden,” said Kari Vargas, CEO of AdventHealth Winter Garden, West Orange, and South Lake market. “Our commitment to our patients is to provide accessible, state-of-the-art care, and we are keeping that promise to our community.”
The new inpatient tower will bring an estimated 400 medical and support jobs to the community. The completion of this project is the latest in a series of additions to the campus since the opening of the emergency room in 2016.
“Providing care in a convenient location close to home is a key part of our mission,” said Dr. Miles Bennett, chief medical officer for AdventHealth Winter Garden. “We know that the presence and emotional support of loved ones during a hospital stay help the healing process.”
