Rapid Whole Genome Sequencing

AdventHealth for Children is the first and only children's hospital in Central Florida to provide rapid whole genome sequencing, an advanced diagnostic technology, that will rapidly identify the causes of rare genetic disorders in some of the sickest infants and children.

Through a partnership with Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine, we are able to have access to a state-of-the-art genome sequencing lab that employs a multi-disciplinary team of experts who specialize in providing timely and accurate guidance to physicians caring for children with rare genetic disease. This partnership is the latest in AdventHealth's investment in genomics and will change the future of healthcare.

“Genomics is the future of medicine. This advanced testing can have a significant impact on how we diagnose and treat patients,. Rady Children’s Institute is a leader in genomic medicine, and this partnership will help us provide the best care to some of the littlest and sickest patients in our care.” - Dr. Rajan Wadhawan, Senior Executive Officer, AdventHealth for Children.
