Know Where to Go: How to Find the Right Place for Care If You’re Sick or Hurt

If you’re new to Central Florida, you might still be getting to know the area — the fastest way to work, your kids’ bus route and the best places to eat. But we want to make sure you also add medical care to your list. Learning where to go if you get sick or injured now, before a medical emergency strikes, can help you avoid stress when it matters.

If you’re facing one of these 35 or so conditions — or any other medical emergency — consider AdventHealth’s Care Network. Depending on your condition, you have five main options: the eCare app, urgent care, a family doctor, an emergency department or sports medicine and rehabilitation.
