Adventist Health System, which is the parent of Florida Hospital, purchased land in the Lake Nona area that could be used for several medical purposes, including a freestanding emergency department and/or an outpatient surgery center.

Freestanding emergency centers typically are owned and operated by licensed hospitals. The facilities are not connected to a main hospital campus, but offer the same comprehensive 24/7 emergency services. The number of such facilities is on the rise in Florida, in part due to overcrowded ERs and a desire to grow hospital system revenue. Such facilities also act as a toehold for future hospitals.
Adventist spent $8.975 million on roughly 15 acres on the north and south sides of Lake Nona Boulevard, according to documents filed on Dec. 15. The land is adjacent a 67.24-acre site Adventist bought last year, which currently is zoned as grazing land and doesn’t have any structures built on it.
