*Media should park in the valet loop and enter via the unmarked entrance at the corner of Rollins Street and Alden Road near the traffic light.

 

IMPORTANT ARRIVAL INFORMATION:Media are required to be temperature checked and wear a mask per our revised visitor policy. We will have a screening table and masks available specifically for media. Media should not enter the hospital via the main entrance. All reporters and photographers should enter the hospital via the unmarked double doors at the corner of Rollins Street and Alden Road near the traffic light. A member of the communications team will be there to meet you.

 

As a reminder, media are not allowed to film in patient areas, including the main lobby, due to federal privacy laws. We are giving media a preview of the changes in a section of the hospital that is separate from main patient care areas so you can freely film.

 

 

AdventHealth makes changes at drive-up testing sites

 

AdventHealth will close its drive-up testing site in Sanford today to support the reopening of the Seminole Towne Center. The remainder of the six drive-up locations will continue to operate next week with adjusted hours from 9 am to noon. The change is being made to better align resources with demand.

 

Those who wish to be tested should register online AdventHealthCoronavirusTesting.com. You do not need a doctor’s order prior to arrival. There are no out-of-pocket costs, regardless of insurance status. AdventHealth will cover the cost of those who are uninsured. The test consists of spitting into a cup.

 

To date, more than 15,000 Central Floridians have been tested at AdventHealth drive-up testing sites.

 

The following sites will be open Monday through Friday, 9 am to noon:

 

  • Daytona International Speedway
  • Mall at Millenia in Orlando
  • Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee
  • Lake-Sumter State College in Leesburg
