ORLANDO, Fla., April 7, 2019 — AdventHealth, formerly known as Florida Hospital, has struck an affiliation with Orlando Hand Surgery Associates, an independent hand surgery group, to create a regional hand surgery center.
The Hand to Shoulder Center, which will be located on Princeton Avenue on AdventHealth Orlando’s campus, will include a walk-in clinic, a surgical center, a biomechanics lab, skills and cadaver lab, a microvascular lab and teaching and rehabilitation center. Leaders expect to start a hand surgery fellowship training in 2020. The center will also include satellite offices across Central Florida.
“We’re developing a regional hand center,” said Dr. George White, president of Orlando Hand Surgery and the director of the new center. “There’s no place in the Southeastern United States that puts everything that we do together in one place.”
