About AdventHealth Fish Memorial
AdventHealth's parent company, Adventist Health System, has announced that it will soon change its name to AdventHealth. Based in Altamonte Springs, Adventist Health System is one of the nations largest faith-based health care systems with nearly 50 hospital campuses and more than 80,000 employees. As of Jan. 2, 2019, all of Adventist Health Systems wholly owned hospitals and care sites across its footprint in nine states will adopt the AdventHealth name and logo. This name change is not the result of a merger, acquisition or change in ownership, but part of our efforts to help consumers easily identify AdventHealth's care locations and services. We remain steadfastly committed to delivering whole-person care for the mind, body and spirit and our mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ remains the same.
Located in Orange City, AdventHealth Fish Memorial has 175-beds and is one of the six AdventHealths in Flagler, Lake and Volusia counties that composes the AdventHealth Central Florida Division - North Region.
