Adventist Health System (AHS), parent company of Florida Hospitals, is prepping for a major expansion of its corporate campus in Altamonte Springs.

The nonprofit company filed plans last week with the city and the St. Johns River Water Management District for a new office building and parking deck in the northeast corner of the campus, at the intersection of Gateway Drive and Inspiration Avenue.

The new 5-story, 165,354-square-foot building would mark the third phase of the healthcare company's centralization plan. The corporate headquarters building was completed in 2011, followed in 2013 by the 6-story Solutions Center, which houses the company's information technology department. Both existing buildings have achieved LEED certification.

The new project also includes a 7-story parking garage with a total of 736 parking spaces.

AHS Communications Director Christine Stewart said in a release late Monday the company hopes to break ground by the end of the year and occupy the building in early 2018. The new building will house the following departments: enterprise resource planning, shared services and the corporate human resources and supply chain departments.

City Manager Frank Martz described AHS as a "long-standing and valued partner" of the city.

"We look forward to seeing their third building emerge in Altamonte, and we're thrilled with the jobs it will bring," he told GrowthSpotter on Monday.

Stewart said about 850 employees will work in the new building, bringing the total number of workers at the corporate campus to 2,300.

Randy Haffner, the new president/CEO of Multi-State Division for Adventist Health System and his wife, Cynthia Ann Haffner, purchased a home at 1381 College Point in Winter Park for $3.4 million on Aug. 21, according to Orange County records.

Eddie Portis, a partner and studio principal in the Charlotte office of Little Diversified, has been project architect for all three buildings.

The 27-acre corporate campus is called the Mardian J. Blair Administrative Center, and is near the intersection of State Road 434 and Maitland Boulevard.

Winter Park-based Donald W. McIntosh Associates is the civil engineer and surveyor. Brasfield & Gorrie will continue its role as general contractor.
