US-based healthcare provider AdventHealth has begun construction of the new Winter Haven Emergency Room (ER) and hospital site in Winter Haven, Florida.

The initial phase of construction will include a 20,000ft² ER with 24 beds, with future plans for a 192-bed hospital and medical office building on the 42-acre site.

Expected to be completed next year, the ER will include triage rooms, 24 exam rooms and 20 additional private rooms.

It will provide X-rays, lab services, computerised tomography (CT) scans and ultrasound scans among other services.

AdventHealth Polk Market president and CEO Tim Clark said: “We are very excited to be taking this first step to further expand our footprint of emergency care services here in Winter Haven.

“The community has told us there is a need for convenient, world-class, whole-person care here in the south-east area of Winter Haven and AdventHealth is proud to be able to provide those services.

“This ER is just the first phase of the medical campus we will be building on the site.”

The ER will eventually be connected to the hospital as subsequent construction phases progress.

Architecture firm HuntonBrady has been selected for the project, while Robins & Morton will handle the construction work.

Winter Haven mayor Brad Dantzler said: “All you’ve got to do is drive down Cypress Gardens Boulevard and you will see over 1,500 units that are under construction.

“Winter Haven is in a massive growth spurt right now and this time couldn’t be better for AdventHealth and Winter Haven to come in here and service the people who are moving in.”

AdventHealth recently held a topping-out ceremony for its AdventHealth Riverview Hospital in West Florida, which is due to open next year.

Earlier this year, the group broke ground on a hospital at its Lenexa City Center campus in Kansas.
