Experts in Providing Advanced Care
The unique environment of a long-term acute-care hospital means that our patients and their visitors will spend more time with us than at other hospitals. For that reason, we've designed our hospital to be a comfortable environment. Our specially trained staff are not only experts in providing advanced care, but also have friendly, compassionate personalities that help ease the stress that can be associated with long-term recovery or illness.
The 48,000-square foot, one-story AdventHealth Connerton features all private rooms, an operating room for minor inpatient procedures, a chapel, inner courtyard and dining area — all specially designed for an extended hospital stay.
AdventHealth Connerton is part of the AdventHealth network, and we are proud to bring our expertise, experience and leadership to the region as we deliver health care through the compassion and dedication of our people.
