At AdventHealth, our 150-year-old mission to Extend the Healing Ministry of Christ is always at the center of what we do. As communities across the globe celebrate Passover, Easter and call on faith and hope to weather this storm, we want to continue being a place of healing - body, mind and spirit - to those in need. Below are insights on the latest COVID-19 information, and details on our preparedness and response efforts.
