Fla., AdventHealth Kissimmee today opened new floors in its patient tower, an $84 million expansion that includes new private rooms and the ability to provide crucial services for residents in Osceola County.

The approximately 123,000-square-foot expansion adds 80 private patient rooms, bringing the campus licensed bed count to 242 and bringing the tower from three stories to six. Later this year, there will be an additional $20 million investment to open a fifth operating room and a second cardiac catheterization lab to serve the community’s surgical and cardiovascular needs. Furthermore, a parking garage will be opening at the end of the year.

“This investment illustrates our ongoing commitment to the health of the Kissimmee community,” said Sheila Rankin, CEO of AdventHealth Kissimmee. “We are dedicated to providing whole-person care close to home for the growing population of Osceola County in the years to come.”

Rapid population growth has contributed to the need for additional capacity at the campus, as reflected in the number of patients seen in the last two years. AdventHealth Kissimmee had about 17,100 admissions and more than 83,500 emergency room visits in 2020-2021.

The completion of this project is the latest in a series of improvements on the campus, going back to the expanded emergency room that opened in 2014, followed by the original patient tower in 2015.
