The structural construction of AdventHealth’s standalone emergency room in Winter Haven has been completed.

The health care system marked the occasion Monday with a topping off ceremony at the Polk County facility. The plan is for the full project to be finished by next summer.

When complete, the 19,960-square-foot, one-story facility on Cypress Gardens Boulevard will include 24 rooms with 20 private rooms, two of which will be pediatric-friendly, as well as space for resuscitation, bariatrics, obstetrics and isolation.

There are also two triage rooms off the lobby and a helipad will be located directly behind the ER.

This emergency room is the first step of AdventHealth West Florida Division’s master plan in the area.

That plan calls for the health care system to build a 42-acre medical campus on the Cypress Gardens Blvd site. According to an AdventHealth spokesperson, the campus will be built out in stages and include a 192-bed hospital connected to the ER, a medical office building and ancillary facilities.

AdventHealth's West Florida Division offers services at 13 hospitals, seven freestanding emergency rooms and various specialty care centers throughout the West Florida region. The network includes more than 200 physicians, Express Care at Walgreens clinics, urgent care centers, physical therapy, home care and more. A faith-based nonprofit health care system, AdventHealth operates more than 50 hospitals and hundreds of care sites across the United States.
