As we wrap up our week spent celebrating the AdventHealth Winter Park Emergency Department’s 1-year anniversary, RLF salutes AdventHealth for its foresight in focusing on the growing healthcare needs of the Winter Park community in its vision for the new ER.
The new contemporary and bright 30-bed ER offers an exceptional level of care. The first and only ER in Central Florida designed for seniors, the AdventHealth Winter Park Emergency Department includes a wide variety of senior amenities and resources, including thicker pressure-reducing mattresses, high-back chairs for enhanced comfort and mobility, often-needed items such as magnifying glasses and hearing amplifiers, and warm blankets for patients and their loved ones. The facility, which is staffed by a team of physicians and clinicians with specialized training in geriatric emergency medicine, also provides a Senior ER Care Coordinator to assist seniors in identifying and navigating their healthcare needs.
In addition to providing enhanced care for seniors, the AdventHealth Winter Park ER is a designated stroke center, offering advanced tools, procedures, and treatments designed specifically for strokes. The ER also includes private rooms, a child-friendly waiting area, state-of-the-art trauma rooms, a decontamination room, and behavior health rooms. Staff-friendly features include motion sensor-activated door openers, advanced organization of tools and supplies, and improved sightlines to provide unobscured observation of public spaces.
