Residents of east Volusia County will soon have a new and convenient option for outpatient surgical services. AdventHealth has broken ground on an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) that will provide a wide range of procedures including cardiac, general surgery, orthopedics, and several other specialties. The building is on AdventHealth’s existing Daytona Beach campus on Memorial Medical Parkway.
The 3-floor, 60,000-square-foot building will contain four operating rooms and two catheterization labs, and will be the medical office home to the Cardiology Physicians Group and North Florida Surgeons specialty group. It is slated to open in January 2024.
“We look forward to adding this beautiful facility to the AdventHealth Daytona Beach campus,” said David Weis, president & CEO of AdventHealth Daytona Beach. “This project represents an exciting collaboration with two of the leading independent physician groups in our area and will be a destination center for cardiovascular, surgical, and women’s outpatient care.”
Outpatient surgery centers are not only convenient, offering an excellent patient experience, but also provide lower-cost options for the community to access high-quality care.
On the first floor of the building will be a 6,500-square foot AdventHealth cardiac rehabilitation clinic, imaging services, and an 8,300-square-foot surgical clinic for North Florida Surgeons. The second floor will house a 20,000-square-foot cardiology clinic for Cardiology Physicians Group, and the third floor will have a 20,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center (ASC) that will be used by both medical groups and a number of other independent and AdventHealth Medical Group physicians.
“We see a great benefit to offering a separate venue for outpatient procedures,” said Dr. Dinesh Arab of Cardiology Physicians Group, who serves as director of interventional cardiology at AdventHealth Daytona Beach. “This facility will allow a seamless way for patients who don’t require acute care to have their procedures done quickly and conveniently.”
“North Florida Surgeons is excited to partner with AdventHealth in building this cutting-edge outpatient surgical facility,” added Dr. Mark White of North Florida Surgeons. “Having our office in the same building makes it very convenient for our patients to get 5-star surgical care all in one facility.”
The $45.7 million building is a joint venture between AdventHealth and health care real estate services firm Meadows & Ohly. The architect on the project is Hunton Brady, and the general contractor is Brasfield & Gorrie.
More high-tech expensive toys that most people aren’t able to afford instead of Medicare for All, huh? Waddaworld?!

Believe me, as a former triple cardiac bypass surgery patient, and heart attack survivor diagnosed by the cardiac catheterization “TOY” you describe, I am grateful for having that kind of service minutes away instead of hours!
Also as a Clinical Nurse Specialist and a Certified Nurse Case Manager, expect your insurance costs to skyrocket under Medicare for All. For full Medicare coverage now as a retiree with Medicare B and a supplemental plan plus medication coverage, I’m paying $320/ month. Expect that to go up quite a bit with the joke of “Medicare for all”, as a cheaper alternative….and Medicare has just as many “hoops” to
jump through as private insurance ( but it would be the ONLY game in town under a 1 payer system)…you couldn’t go anywhere else.
Look into the facts of the overwhelmed British National Health services costs and delays in services…and many British doctors refuse to accept it because it pays providers so little. Many British Citizens are paying separately for additional private insurance on top of paying for the NHS care out of their taxes ( which are extremely high)

While I think the new ASC will be a wonderful venture, as a patient at Advent Health Daytona, I believe an extension of the Emergency Department is warranted. After spending 8 hours in the ER on several occasions, and with patients lined up in the hallways on beds, it appears a larger ER is crucial to the health and welfare of patients.

The reason for crowds in the ER and long delays, are MANY patients whom use the ER instead of a primary care provider for NON EMERGENCY care or an alternative URGENT CARE center. Some because of “walk in care” rather than waiting for a doctor’s appointment.
Another reason is the number of people without healthcare insurance. Unlike Urgent Care Centers and MD’s offices, ER’s have to by law, treat you by walking through the door…regardless of having insurance or not.
The thing that might help the ER overcrowding, might be by quick triage, and sending non-emergent patients to an attached 16 hr Urgent Care Center. Of course, that wouldn’t solve the uninsured problem
As a Clinical Nurse Specialist, and Certified Nurse Case Manager, reviewing ER records after the treatment, there has to be a better utilization of expensive EMERGENCY Medical services.

Will be used now if Renner’s proposal for no license, registration more free guns for all yet passes.
You can rest assured they will be treating a multitude of other aliments as well. Incidentally, the Florida Sheriffs Association fully supports passage of this Bill.
