AdventHealth History

AdventHealth was formally founded in 1973 but traces its roots back to 1866 with a team of Seventh-day Adventist medical pioneers in Battle Creek, Michigan. During a time when many treatments were as harmful as the conditions they attempted to cure, our founders were considered revolutionaries for their belief that preventing disease was as important as treating it. They believed the best care didn’t treat only the body, it also helped heal the mind and lift the spirit.

Since our founding, we've treated every patient as a creation of God, deserving of extraordinary whole-person care. By focusing on the whole-person and strengthening our mission, AdventHealth today is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction. Our founders’ commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics around the world.
