Since our early beginning as the Florida Sanitarium, then Florida Hospital, and now AdventHealth, we still share the same mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ by providing expert, world-class care. Our goal is to treat every person as a creation of God, deserving of whole-person care – mind, body and spirit. Our mission is only possible because of our skilled and compassionate caregivers. 

We have over 80,000 doctors, nurses and caregivers who have devoted their lives to caring for patients throughout our community.

For patients like Jeff Sweeney, this day is deeply personal. 50 years ago, Jeff came to visit his sick grandmother at what was known as the Florida Sanitarium. He and his wife celebrated the births of their two sons here. And years later, he found himself back at Florida Hospital where his wife received a cancer diagnosis. Jeff became a patient himself when he had a heart attack at his home in Winter Park, just one month after receiving a clean bill of health on his annual physical exam. He was treated by Chin Kim, MD at our Cardiovascular Institute and made a full recovery.

“I have never worked with such an efficient, progressive organization that embraces its caring mission. From the nurses and orderlies who took care of my grandmother, to the doctors who delivered my sons, to the team that took care of my wife and me, AdventHealth caregivers are unique. My heartfelt thanks and blessings to you and your organization. You have my greatest admiration and appreciation. I am forever grateful to AdventHealth.”

AdventHealth Doctors' Day

On March 30 as we proudly celebrate National Doctor’s Day – a special time to honor a caregiver that has made a difference in your life.

Is there an AdventHealth caregiver who changed the life of you or a loved one? A simple “thank you” or generous gift can mean the world to a doctor, nurse or caregiver. Here are two ways you can say thank you:

Your note will be hand delivered to your caregiver, and your donation amount will be kept confidential. As one of the largest health care providers in the United States, we are grateful for our employees in physician practices, hospitals, outpatient clinics and hospice centers. Thank you for joining us in honoring healthcare professionals this Doctors’ Day.
