AdventHealth Central Florida Division COVID-19 update: Sept. 23, 2021

AdventHealth’s COVID-19 patient census continued to drop this week to about 660 patients hospitalized across our hospitals in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Polk, Lake, Volusia and Flagler counties. This figure is less than 50% of the level of inpatient hospitalizations we saw at the height of the Delta surge in August of about 1,700 hospitalized patients.

AdventHealth continues to operate under “Green Status” or normal operations.

“This slow, but steady decline in new admissions of COVID-19 patients is a positive signal that we continue to head in the right direction,” said Dr. Neil Finkler, chief clinical officer for AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division. “Please get vaccinated if you are eligible because we continue to see a vast difference in the severity of illness and outcomes between our vaccinated and unvaccinated patients.”
