The Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel (FHWC) is on track for its September 2012 opening.
With a focus on bringing a natural healing environment to Pasco County, the 200,000-square-foot, three-story hospital will feature a Medical Office Building, Wellness Center and an atrium leading to patient areas and private rooms. There will be 80 private beds throughout the facility. And rooms will include foldout beds for family members as well as scenic views designed to promote healing. The views will include gardens, ponds and wetlands.
A member of the nonprofit healthcare organization Adventist Health System, FHWC will offer obstetrics and orthopedic services, general surgery and an emergency department with a helicopter pad, among other things, while focusing on Adventist's values: their Christian mission, high ethical standards, quality service, community wellness and cultural diversity. Currently, Adventist's Health System is comprised of 43 hospitals with 55,000 employees providing care for 4 million patients per year.
"I believe patients, employees, physicians and communities will all be blessed by the security and stability provided by this new partnership," says Don Jernigan, president/CEO of Adventist Health System.
The hospital's 96,000-square-foot Medical Office Building will be adjacent to the hospital, featuring three floors of outpatient services, physician offices and hospital-based ambulatory medical services. An occupant of the Medical Office Building, the hospital's medical-based Wellness Center will promote the growing trend of health, wellness and preventable care for the Wesley Chapel community.
