DELTONA, Fla., December 3, 2019 – On Dec. 3, the community joined AdventHealth for the grand opening celebration of the new freestanding AdventHealth Deltona ER at 3108 Howland Blvd., Deltona (near Deltona High School).
The 12-bed AdventHealth Deltona ER is a $12 million investment in the community’s healthcare and will open to patients seeking comprehensive emergency services, including imaging and laboratory services for both adults and children, on Dec. 4 at 8 am.
The facility will be staffed by highly trained physicians and clinical practitioners with specialized training in emergency medicine, advanced trauma life support, and cardiac life support - including pediatric cardiac life support.
“This facility will be a pillar in this community for years to come,” said Dr. Stephen Knych, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and chief medical officer of AdventHealth Fish Memorial. “It is top notch and can care for the sickest types of patients, from cardiac arrest and stroke patients, to pediatric patients and moms who are expecting to deliver.”
The lab at the AdventHealth Deltona ER will perform the testing necessary to give patients and the care team immediate results for urgent clinical decisions.
The emergency department also has a CT scan and x-ray equipment onsite for any emergency imaging needs.
“If for some reason, a patient needs to be admitted for additional care or observation, they will be seamlessly connected to AdventHealth Fish Memorial, just six miles away,” Knych said during the event. “Your care will be prioritized for placement in one of our inpatient or observation beds for further care as necessary.”
During the community celebration, AdventHealth Fish Memorial CEO Rob Deininger explained that this project took several years of planning.
“AdventHealth has been serving the West Volusia community for 25 years now, and as it so happens, Deltona has been a city for 25 years as well,” Deininger said. “We have been growing and expanding alongside each other to meet the needs of our communities here in West Volusia.”
“For me personally, AdventHealth has been my choice of care for years, and for my mom as well,” Heidi Herzberg, Deltona mayor, said during the event. “I feel safe and I feel secure, and now I know I have something in the City of Deltona if needed. I'm excited that AdventHealth has chosen to put this building in Deltona.”
The architect was Orlando-based HuntonBrady and the contractor was Batson Cook.
