AdventHealth opens Port Orange ER

PORT ORANGE, Fla., July 19, 2021 — Residents of Port Orange have a new option for emergency care with the opening of the AdventHealth Port Orange ER on Monday. The emergency room expands the health care system’s network to better serve residents in east Volusia County.

The approximately 19,000-square-foot facility has 24 patient rooms (including two pediatric-friendly rooms to make ER visits less stressful for young patients); respiratory therapy; diagnostic imaging, including CT scans, X-ray and ultrasound; and a full-service laboratory.

The facility also includes a helipad for helicopter transportation of critical patients.

The facility is staffed by a comprehensive clinical team including board-certified emergency physicians and emergency nurses.

“We are thrilled to unveil this new ER that will modernize and expand the world-class care we’ve provided to Port Orange and the surrounding communities for more than 60 years,” said David Ottati, chief executive officer of AdventHealth’s division that includes Volusia, Lake and Flagler counties.

In October, AdventHealth plans to break ground on a new Health Park next to the ER. The new facilities, along with AdventHealth’s hospitals in Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach, will expand the system’s network of integrated care that is designed to heal not just the body, but the mind and the spirit, too.

“Our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ,” said Ed Noseworthy, chief executive officer of AdventHealth Daytona Beach. “This expansion will give more people access to our care closer to where they live in an environment that cares for the whole person.”

The AdventHealth Port Orange ER is located at 5811 Williamson Blvd in Port Orange at the intersection of Williamson Boulevard and Taylor Road. This emergency department is part of AdventHealth Daytona Beach and this is not an urgent care center. Its services and care are billed at hospital emergency department rates.
