The newly renovated Midway medical center opens Wednesday, March 13, 2019, to provide health care services to drivers, crews and fans during SuperSebring weekend.

AdventHealth care teams at the newly renovated Midway medical center will provide health care services to drivers, crews and fans during SuperSebring weekend.

“Our teams will be providing the best care possible to drivers and fans during what is expected to be a record-breaking weekend for attendance,” said Randy Surber, President and CEO of AdventHealth Sebring.

As the Official Health Care Partner of the raceway circuit and its events, AdventHealth care teams will provide comprehensive, on-site services at the exclusive Midway medical center for the 67th Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Advanced Auto Parts. The Infield Care Center will be staffed with emergency physicians and nurses who are certified in trauma care. Additionally, it will have emergency equipment including resuscitation equipment and supplies to manage a major trauma.

The center will also handle a variety of minor illnesses and injuries. Services will be provided through Saturday of the main race event from 7 a.m. until the track is “cold,” which varies from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. nightly.

“Our teams will be providing the best care possible to drivers and fans during what is expected to be a record-breaking weekend for attendance,” said Randy Surber, President and CEO of AdventHealth Sebring. “Our top priority is making sure everyone stays safe and healthy while enjoying SuperSebring events.”

AdventHealth will also staff a Midway First Aid Center Wednesday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily. It will be located at the first turn on the track and will primarily serve fans who have minor illnesses or injuries.

As part of the SuperSebring weekend, AdventHealth will also be part of the Fan Zone with family friend games like “Operation,” an interactive photo booth, and giveaways. Game winners can take home an extra prize and one lucky fan will win a 50th anniversary poster autographed by some of racing’s top drivers.

Fans also have a chance to win cash prizes sponsored by Southern M Printing Events, who will donate $5,000 – up to $15,000 – to be split evenly among the AdventHealth Lake Placid, Sebring and Wauchula Foundations, which help provide lifesaving equipment to our hospitals.

As the Official Health Care Partner of the raceway circuit and its events, AdventHealth will return to the track in November to provide care during the Michelin IMSA Encore races. AdventHealth will continue to serve as the official hospital year-round for drivers, fans and employees during track activities throughout the season.
