ORLANDO, Fla. — The AdventHealth ER at FLAMINGO CROSSINGS Town Center today opened its doors to the public. Last week, AdventHealth hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the new facility. AdventHealth is bringing trusted emergency care and a first-of-its-kind patient experience for Central Florida visitors and community members, including Walt Disney World Resort guests and cast members.
To commemorate this important milestone in the latest chapter of the alliance in which AdventHealth became the Official Health Care Provider of Walt Disney World Resort, as well as the Official Virtual Health Care Provider of Walt Disney World Resort, special guests – Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse -- participated in the ceremony.
“We are pleased to celebrate the grand opening of this unique and innovative facility, which will provide convenient, whole-person care for Central Floridians and visitors alike,” said Randy Haffner, CEO of AdventHealth Florida.
As reported by Laughing Place, the ER’s design and patient experience is unique in the AdventHealth network, with Key West-influenced architecture and Disney-inspired touches and familiar characters from The Little Mermaid, Moana and the Finding Nemo film series to enhance the patient experience.
The emergency room, located near the western gateway to Walt Disney World Resort, is staffed by a comprehensive clinical team including board-certified emergency physicians and nurses. The state-of-the-art design of the facility and team member training brings an enhanced patient experience for those who need emergency care and access to specialists including experts in heart, stroke and stomach pain.
The approximately 19,000-square-foot facility has 24 private patient rooms; respiratory therapy; diagnostic imaging including CT scans, X-ray and ultrasound; and a full-service laboratory.
