Kid-Friendly Design

Laughter can be the best medicine, which is why when your child visits AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital Heartland, for a checkup, treatment, or even an unexpected trip to the ER, our pediatric specialists will aim to keep them smiling. Whimsical murals, chaplain visits, private rooms so you can always stay over — we have everything your child might want to feel more at home while they heal. At our sister hospital in Celebration, Florida, just across from Walt Disney Pavilion at AdventHealth, our longstanding partnership with the Walt Disney® brand is designed to enchant your child every step of the way. You’re our guest at AdventHealth, which means you’ll always get our best.

Children's Learning Center

We're always looking to improve the lives of the littlest lives in our community. That’s why our AdventHealth team invests time and resources in our Children’s Learning Center to make sure every child benefits from the eight principles of CREATION Life — Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal Relationships, Outlook, and Nutrition. Our childcare facility, with curriculum for children aged two to five, offers students hands-on experiences, ample outdoor play, and a warm, fully licensed staff to nurture their physical, social, and spiritual needs. At AdventHealth, we believe every child should have the opportunity to grow, learn, and thrive. For more information or tour our facility, please call Call863-402-5540.
