About AdventHealth - DeLand
At AdventHealth, Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ is our mission. It calls us to be His hands and feet in helping people feel whole. Our story is one of hope — one that strives to heal and restore the body, mind and spirit.
More than 80,000 skilled and compassionate caregivers in physician practices, hospitals, outpatient clinics, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies and hospice centers provide individualized, wholistic care.
Our Christian mission, shared vision, common values and focus on whole-person health is our commitment to making communities healthier with a unified system: nearly 50 hospital campuses and hundreds of care sites in diverse markets throughout nine states.
AdventHealth was formally founded in 1973 but traces its roots back to 1866 with a team of Seventh-day Adventist medical pioneers in Battle Creek, Michigan. During a time when many treatments were as harmful as the conditions they attempted to cure, our founders were considered revolutionaries for their belief that preventing disease was as important as treating it. They believed the best care didn’t treat only the body, it also helped heal the mind and lift the spirit.
Since our founding, we've treated every patient as a creation of God, deserving of extraordinary whole-person care. By focusing on the whole-person and strengthening our mission, AdventHealth today is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction. Our founders’ commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics around the world.
