Adventist Health System becoming AdventHealth

Effective Jan. 2, 2019, the Altamonte Springs-based Adventist Health System becomes AdventHealth. With nearly 50 hospital campuses and more than 80,000 employees, it’s one of the nation’s largest faith-based health care systems. In addition, it is moving to a consumer-centric, connected, and identifiable national system providing care for every stage of life.

FHW in Tavares will become AdventHealth Waterman with no change to the AHS organization ownership or business structure.

“We are transforming to be a more consumer-focused health care system to better meet the needs of those we care for and the communities we serve,” says Terry Shaw, president/CEO for Adventist Health System. “Becoming AdventHealth allows us to be a fully integrated and distinguishable health system across all aspects of the care continuum, while also speaking to our Christian healing ministry, message of wholeness and our rich Seventh-day Adventist roots.”
