AdventHealth boosts Central Florida profile with $158M+ in projects

AdventHealth just completed one expansion and announced the start of another as part of its growing Central Florida footprint.  The 269-bed AdventHealth Waterman on May 3 opened the first phase of a $74 million, 111,000-square-foot expansion. The phase included an enlargement of the emergency department as well as a 24-bed women and children’s unit that will provide services such as gynecology, labor and delivery, postpartum care and inpatient pediatrics, said AdventHealth Waterman CEO Abel Biri.  "Part of the original design was several curtained rooms, which did not allow for privacy at times and was not big enough for the care team, emergent patients who might require more care members and emergency department patients who usually have families there," Biri said.
