AdventHealth files plans for Holy Land site, proposes hospital, medical offices and vertiport


AdventHealth has submitted plans showing that it intends to build medical offices and a hospital on the former Holy Land Experience site in Orlando.

According to a recently submitted application to Orlando’s Municipal Planning Board, the health system won’t be demolishing the existing three-story auditorium nor the existing Holy Land building directly across yet.

Instead, AdventHealth intends to build around the structures at 4655 and 4615 Vineland Road, and embark on a two-phase development plan, called AdventHealth Millenia, that involves building a four-story, 80,000 square foot medical office building (Phase 1) and a five-story, 261,500-square-foot hospital (Phase 2).

Included in plans for the first phase are a helipad, which will require a Conditional Use Permit, and associated surface parking.

The first floor of the medical office building will feature a 20,000-square-foot of Emergency Room.

AdventHealth bought the 14.2-acre site on the corner of Vineland Road and Conroy Road for $32 million in August.

The second floor will have 20,000 square feet of medical office space and the third and fourth floors will feature 19,000 square feet each consisting of either medical office uses or ambulatory surgical centers.

Phase 1 will also include building the master infrastructure to serve future phases of the hospital. According to the plans, AdventHealth is still considering demolishing the current Holy Land Experience structures for future phases.

Kimley-Horn is the civil engineer assigned to the project. The proposed plans are set to go before Orlando’s Municipal Planning Board on Feb. 15.

Earlier this summer, the hospital system paid $32 million for the 14.2-acre site on the northeast corner of Vineland Road and Conroy Road.

The Christian theme park’s parent company, Trinity Broadcasting Network, had struggled to keep the business afloat. Shortly before the pandemic struck, Holy Land Experience ended all of its stage shows and laid off much of its workforce.

AdventHealth is one of the largest faith-based health systems in Florida. Its Central Florida division has more than 20 hospitals and ERs across seven counties.

The health system is currently building a 12-story, 300,000-square-foot medical office building in Orlando’s Health Village that will be anchored by the Florida headquarters of the Rothman Orthopaedic Institute. The project is expected to be completed in late 2022.

In late October, the company paid $21 million to purchase land in the Hills of Minneola for a full-service acute care hospital and medical park.

In Clermont, AdventHealth recently opened a 36,000-square-foot medical office building and a 19,000-square-foot emergency room at the intersection of S.R. 50 and Citrus Tower Boulevard. It also recently opened freestanding emergency departments in Kissimmee and near Disney, along Palm Parkway.
