AdventHealth 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.

  • AdventHealth Breaks Ground on $100 Million Expansion in West Volusia County
    GroundbreakingORANGE CITY, FL, May 22, 2018 – The rain held out as AdventHealth Fish Memorial officials and local dignitaries broke ground on a $100 million expansion project.
    Holding shiny gold shovels, officials dug into blue and pink ceremonial sand, which symbolized the state-of-the-art, 15-bed labor and delivery unit that will be included in this expansion project.
    “This is a big day for AdventHealth Fish Memorial, but it is really an even bigger day for our community here in West Volusia. What we launched today has been in the planning stages for a couple of years,” Rob Deininger, AdventHealth Fish Memorial CEO, said during the event. “West Volusia has seen rapid growth, and we are committed to delivering the most advanced and efficient care possible in our communities. We are blessed to have the opportunity to begin this expansion project and build on our historic commitment for the future.”
    During the groundbreaking celebration, guests used virtual reality goggles to experience what the interior of the new patient tower will look like once construction is completed. Additionally, attendees used an interactive 3D model to visually move around the building in real time.
    In addition to birth care services, the four-story patient tower will include a new intensive care unit, increasing bed capacity from 21 to 26 beds and a new medical-surgical unit. This construction project will also fully privatize all patient rooms at AdventHelath Fish Memorial, while increasing the number of licensed beds from 175 to 225. The expansion will also significantly increase the size of AdventHealth Fish Memorial’s emergency department, while adding pediatric emergency care.

    Construction is expected to be completed in 2020.
