Florida Hospital Fish Memorial’s $100 million expansion project includes the construction of a four-story patient tower for enhanced cardiac, intensive care, and surgical services, as well as a 15-bed, state-of-the-art birth care center. This construction project will also fully privatize all patient rooms, while at the same time grow the number of licensed beds from 175 to 225. In addition, the expansion will significantly increase the size of Florida Hospital Fish Memorial’s emergency department, while adding pediatric emergency care. Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.Video Gallery Photo Gallery

Florida Hospital Fish Memorial is a comprehensive, full service, 175-bed acute care community hospital located in Orange City, Florida. It is part of the Adventist Health System, the largest Protestant, not-for-profit hospital system in America. The hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
The facility began as Fish Memorial in 1952, in DeLand, Florida. In 1994, the hospital was renamed Volusia Medical Center and relocated to Orange City to serve the growing population of southwest Volusia County. In 1996, the Adventist Health System purchased Volusia Medical Center and in 1998, renamed the facility Florida Hospital Fish Memorial to honor the hospital’s benefactor, Judge Bert Fish.
Florida Hospital Fish Memorial had a $15 million expansion in 2003, and the Fish Imaging diagnostic center opened in 2007 on the hospital campus. In 2015 Deltona Health Park opened as part of our continued promise to provide quality health care to the residents of Southwest Volusia County and Fish Imaging relocated to Deltona Health Park.
In 2017 Florida Hospital Fish Memorial’s center for Wellness and Rehab Care opened. With this new consolidated location, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial can care for more patients and offer additional rehabilitation services that are not readily available at many freestanding outpatient therapy facilities. In addition, the hospital’s community garden will be located adjacent to the Volusia Medical Center and will give occupational therapy patients the opportunity to practice fine motor skills related to gardening.
