The health system recently filed an application in Orange County showing plans to construct an 18,540-square-foot emergency department on a portion of land it acquired five months ago from Pulte Homes.
AdventHealth paid about $12.9 million in late December for 11.63 acres of vacant land west of where the new Daryl Carter Parkway extension meets Palm Parkway.
Plans submitted by AdventHealth shows the emergency department building will rise on about 3 acres of land. It’s unclear what the health system is planning to build on the remaining 8 acres.
A representative with the company was not immediately available to comment.
The deal signifies a push by AdventHealth to expand its footprint in Osceola County. It recently announced it will be undertaking an $84 million project to add three floors to its main hospital in the city. AdventHealth is also currently expanding its Celebration Health complex with a new 156-bed patient tower.
