Here’s an understatement: healthcare can sometimes be complicated. Navigating multiple physician appointments and scheduling procedures, all while not feeling well, is challenging, to say the least. That’s why AdventHealth has care coordinators, who can serve as helpful guides through the AdventHealth Care Network, and are available to any AdventHealth patient.

Here to Help
Since 1973, AdventHealth’s caregivers have been Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ by providing a whole-care experience through state-of-the-art services to all of Seminole and its surrounding counties.

Care coordinators are specially trained, registered nurses who can help you access any health services you may need across the extensive AdventHealth Care Network – from your primary care physician to any specialist you might need like a pediatrician, nearby urgent care center, medical imaging, and inpatient hospital care. 

Make One Call 
In addition to their clinical expertise, care coordinators can assist you by:
• Answering healthcare questions
• Scheduling medical appointments
• Coordinating your care among different providers
• Connecting you and your family with resources and support services
• Providing a constant link to your healthcare team
• Scheduling private tours of AdventHealth facilities
• Gathering information about clinical trials and other research initiatives
