You know your body and you know when something's not right. When your body is trying to tell you something — if you’re seized by sudden pain or having a severe allergic reaction — listen. And trust your instincts. Call 911 immediately to be taken to the closest ER if you experience any of the following:
- Broken Bones
- Complicated Fractures
- Deep Wounds
- Extreme Difficulty Breathing
- Major Head Injury
- Severe Allergic Reactions
- Severe Burns
- Suspected Heart Attack
- Suspected Stroke
- Vomiting or Coughing Up Blood
You can easily live your whole life without seeing the inside of an emergency room. But if you ever need us, know that AdventHealth Altamonte Springs, formerly Florida Hospital Altamonte, is here to help make the experience smoother, combining ER expertise with compassionate care so you can start feeling whole again. Our expertise is demonstrated by the elite certifications we’ve obtained.
What to Expect When You Visit the ER
In an emergency situation, you may feel worried and confused. You'll have a lot of questions, and our caring ER team will be here to answer each one. We’ll have some questions for you, too, because the more we know, the more quickly and effectively we can treat you. First, we’ll ask for basic information like your medical history and the reason for your visit. After we take your vital signs, we’ll decide on the best way to help you.
Because we’re dedicated to bringing you timely care in our 24-hour emergency rooms, we prioritize using a process known as triage. This means a later-arriving patient suffering from a suspected stroke may receive treatment sooner than someone else in a non-critical condition. But you can be confident we’ll do all we can to reduce our ER wait times, so we can bring you timely, effective emergency medical treatments.
- Supporting You Through Local Urgent Care Centers
When you need treatment for non-critical injuries or illnesses, such as rashes or sprains, you can find support in our local Centra Care urgent care centers. Our highly skilled medical teams are ready to help you with a range of minor ailments, including:
- Allergic Reactions and Hives
- Cold, Flu, and Common Illnesses
- Disease Management
- Minor Cuts (Onsite Stitches Available)
- Sprains, Strains, and Fractures
- Stomach and Digestive Conditions
You need to focus on taking care of yourself or your loved one. We accept most major insurance plans, and we don’t require you to schedule an appointment before visiting Centra Care. That way you can find care more quickly. Because we care about your future health as well, we offer preventative services in our local Centra Care centers, like annual physical exams, flu shots, and EKGs — helping you enjoy life with confidence.

As part of our mission to provide whole-person care, we're here to not only heal your body. We want to help ease your mind and minister to your spirit, as well.
