On May 23, 2023, AdventHealth opened a new offsite emergency room department at FLAMINGO CROSSINGS Town Center in Central Florida, providing trusted emergency care and a unique patient experience for visitors and community members, including Walt Disney World Resort guests and cast members. According to the article in the Adventist Review, the ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by special guests Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to commemorate AdventHealth’s alliance as the Official Health Care Provider and Official Virtual Health Care Provider of Walt Disney World Resort. Randy Haffner, CEO of AdventHealth Florida, emphasized the convenience and exceptional care that the facility aims to provide.
The emergency room (ER) is staffed by a comprehensive clinical team, including board-certified emergency physicians and nurses. The state-of-the-art design and training of the facility will enhance the patient experience and provide access to specialists in areas such as heart, stroke, and stomach pain. The design of the ER is unique within the AdventHealth network, featuring Key West-influenced architecture and Disney-inspired touches from popular films such as The Little Mermaid, Moana, and Finding Nemo. The patient journey begins with a unified water-themed setting, using color, sound, and light to create a calming environment. Each patient room is equipped with a media screen featuring custom Disney-animated content.
The facility spans approximately 19,000 square feet and includes 24 private patient rooms, respiratory therapy, diagnostic imaging (CT scans, X-ray, ultrasound), and a full-service laboratory. AdventHealth also offers a range of services and vacation planning tools for Walt Disney World Resort guests through the AdventHealth World of Wellness, providing convenient care services accessible through a call or online.
Jeff Vahle, president of Walt Disney World Resort, congratulated AdventHealth on the opening of the new facility and highlighted its importance in providing medical care for guests and serving the community.
