FL: AdventHealth Daytona Beach Unveils Major Expansion Plans, Adding 240,000 Sq. Ft. to Facility

May 15, 2024

AdventHealth Daytona Beach announced a multi-year, $220 million construction plan to add 104 beds, four new surgical suites and more than 240,000 square feet to the facility.

The construction includes vertical expansions on two existing towers at AdventHealth Daytona Beach: a four-story vertical expansion on one tower and a one-story vertical expansion on a separate tower.

This will add intensive care and progressive care beds, including an expanded cardiovascular intensive care unit (CV-ICU) and a dedicated neuro-ICU unit. It will also grow support services, including an expanded sterile processing unit; a new and enlarged pharmacy; a new laboratory department; and expanded imaging modalities, including an additional CT and MRI.

Once completed, the hospital will grow from 362 inpatient beds to 466 beds and will become just under 1 million square feet in total. Additionally, the number of surgical suites will expand from 18 to 22.

“As an organization, AdventHealth has a deep commitment to growing with our communities and this major expansion at our Daytona Beach hospital will increase the community’s access to world-class, patient-centered care,” said Audrey Gregory, Ph.D., RN, executive vice president and CEO of AdventHealth's East Florida Division. “Less than two weeks ago, we celebrated the opening of our three-story, $45.7 million ambulatory surgery center and medical office building at our Daytona Beach campus. Now, as we embark on this new expansion project, patients will soon have even greater access to high-quality care close to home.”

The expansion project will begin this summer and is expected to be completed by fall of 2026.

Designed with future growth in mind, this project will also give AdventHealth Daytona Beach the ability to quickly expand inpatient beds and surgical suites even further in the future as it includes space for adding more patient rooms, surgical suites and parking accommodations.

“Meticulously crafted, this multi-phased plan is extensive and answers a great need as it is designed to accommodate the on-going growth within East Volusia County. In recent months, we have experienced a high volume of patients seeking care at our facilities, which is a testament to the trust our community places in our team,” said David Weis, president and CEO of both AdventHealth Daytona Beach and the East Volusia Market. “Caring for our community is a privilege and a responsibility we take seriously, and this is reflected in how our teams are consistently recognized for setting the pace for excellence in health care.”

AdventHealth Daytona Beach is 1 of only 18 hospitals in the country – and the only hospital in the state of Florida – to earn consecutive “A” ratings in patient safety and is repeatedly recognized as the No. 1 hospital in Volusia and Flagler counties by U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, AdventHealth Daytona Beach received a five-star rating – the top recognition – from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for three years in a row.

The architect on the project is HuntonBrady Architects.

When AdventHealth Daytona Beach initially opened 15 years ago in July 2009, it represented a $270 million investment in the community’s health care infrastructure. At the time, the new 718,000-square-foot AdventHealth Daytona Beach hospital was more than double the size of its original 42-year-old facility (then called Florida Hospital Ormond Memorial and located about three miles east of the current campus on Sterthaus Road near Nova Road in Ormond Beach).
