Adventist Health System is a not-for-profit healthcare organization that emphasizes Christ at the center of care. Founded in 1973 to support and strengthen Seventh-day Adventist healthcare organizations in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the United States, Adventist Health System has grown to become the largest not-for-profit Protestant healthcare provider in the nation.
Today, Adventist Health System supports 44 campuses and employs 79,000 individuals. Adventist Health System hospitals are comprised of 7,700 plus licensed beds, providing care for 4 million patients each year in inpatient, outpatient and emergency room visits.
In order to best meet the needs of the local communities we serve, Adventist Health System facilities operate independently in hiring employees and delivering care and services. While each entity is unique, they remain united in one mission—to extend the healing ministry of Christ to every patient. Our mission depends not only on our commitment to Christian ideals but on our efforts to provide nothing less than extraordinary compassionate care.
Adventist Health System’s flagship, Florida Hospital, is one of the largest healthcare providers in America and a national leader in cardiac care. Established in 1908, Florida Hospital now includes almost 2,200 beds on seven campuses.
