Our principles for caring for the whole person started more than 150 years ago with the founders of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We continue to help the people in our care create a life of whole health by healing their bodies, strengthening their minds and lifting their spirits. Today, AdventHealth is one of the largest health care providers in the United States, with thousands of compassionate professionals working to Extend the Healing Ministry of Christ around the country.
AdventHealth was formally founded in 1973 but traces its roots back to 1866 with a team of Seventh-day Adventist medical pioneers in Battle Creek, Michigan. During a time when many treatments were as harmful as the conditions they attempted to cure, our founders were considered revolutionaries for their belief that preventing disease was as important as treating it. They believed the best care didn’t treat only the body, it also helped heal the mind and lift the spirit.
Since our founding, we've treated every patient as a creation of God, deserving of extraordinary whole-person care. By focusing on the whole-person and strengthening our mission, AdventHealth today is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction. Our founders’ commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals and clinics around the world.
