TAMPA (PRWEB) March 16, 2021
Leaders for AdventHealth West Florida Division have announced plans to build a 209,000 square foot, four-story hospital in Riverview, Florida. The health care system will break ground on the $216 million project beginning Fall 2021 and plans to open the hospital Spring 2023.
“We are excited to continue our growth strategy to meet the fast-growing needs of southern Hillsborough County,” said Mike Schultz, President and CEO of AdventHealth West Florida Division. “This hospital is another addition to our robust network of connected care that we’re providing in this area including primary care, specialty care, emergency services, outpatient imaging and more. We want to make it easy for people to have convenient access to the expert care they need, when they need it, and help close the gap in health care services in our community.”
The first phase of the new Riverview hospital will include 80 beds at opening and additional space for future expansion to accommodate over 200 beds as the community’s demand for health care grows. The full-service hospital will provide emergency, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology (including labor & delivery), gastroenterology, orthopedic and urology services.
The hospital development follows AdventHealth’s recent growth and expansion plans including the Taneja Center for Surgery opening later this year, the opening of two new offsite emergency departments in Westchase and Brandon, the opening of an AdventHealth Imaging Center in Brandon, and the recent acquisition of an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) formerly known as Tampa Bay Surgery Center and Exodus Women’s Centers located throughout greater Tampa Bay.
