Our Sebring hospital delivers whole-person health care to multiple communities as part of AdventHealth’s network of more than 50 hospital campuses nationwide.
AdventHealth Sebring serves as the primary practice site for our pharmacy residency program.

We are a full-service medical and surgical acute care center, including birthing services.
Nearby AdventHealth Wauchula, a critical access skilled nursing facility, is the area’s only transitional care unit and home to the only emergency department in Hardee County.
The pharmacy department works closely with providers to provide exceptional care to our community. Clinical pharmacists are integral team members and are heavily involved in the inpatient management of pharmacokinetics, anticoagulation and therapeutic drug monitoring. Our pharmacy participates in multiple local and corporate committees, including Medication Safety, Antimicrobial Stewardship, P and T, Stroke, Code Blue, Readmissions and Falls.
