An childrens' emergency room at AdventHealth Carrollwood
Ambient Emergency Department

Pediatric Rooms and Pediatric Waiting Area

Every design element in our new pediatric rooms is intentional and no detail was overlooked. Each room features a customized ambient experience that integrates dynamic lighting, sound and video elements, which in turn provide a soothing environment that enhances comfort and promotes healing.

The new pediatric-friendly emergency department waiting area features a fun cave where kids can seek privacy or get lost in a fun fantasy land.

The hospital can be a scary place, especially for children. Your investment in our emergency department ambient pediatric rooms and pediatric waiting area help provide a less stressful environment for our patients and their families, and offer children a safe, comfortable and positive space to receive treatment and to recover.

MRI Machines

Save Lives

AdventHealth Carrollwood performs an annual average of 1,400 MRIs. With our current MRI machine, 3-5% of patients prematurely stop their scanning procedure due to claustrophobia, pain, or an inability to stay still.

Our Foundation, with the support of our board of directors, is dedicated to better serving these patients by funding a new MRI machine that will live in a fully upgraded imaging suite.

A new machine will have a tremendous impact on our patients and care teams. It will allow us to serve up to 3,120 patients annually and provide hope and clarity to many families in our community.

A new MRI machine will:
• Expand our MRI patient population to also serve breast, pediatric and cardiac patients
• Cut scan times from 60 minutes to 30 minutes or less
• Offer the newest technology to provide precise imaging, exact readings and quicker diagnoses
• Minimize repeat testing and referrals, reducing costs to patients
• Provide higher pixel resolutions, from 1.5mm to 0.6mm, resulting in a more accurate diagnosis

Diagnostic medical imaging has become the central, most significant component in patient evaluation and care. Modern, up-to-date equipment is of paramount importance. A new MRI at AdventHealth Carrollwood will help ensure that our patients receive the most accurate diagnosis and our clinicians have precise imaging to guide treatment.”
