Orlando Health Acquires FHV Health

The hospital system expands its presence to Sumter and Marion Counties

Leesburg, FL (May 3, 2021) – Effective April 12, 2021, Orlando Health completed its acquisition of FHV Health, a multi-specialty group with locations throughout Lake, Sumter and Marion Counties. FHV Health consists of 19 physicians and 10 locations including primary care, cardiology practices and urgent care facilities.  

“FHV Health has provided its patients with access to distinguished physicians and providers for more than two decades,” said David Strong, Orlando Health president and chief executive officer. “We’re honored to continue that legacy while also bringing to this community the highest quality of patient care for which Orlando Health team members and physicians are recognized.” 

“We are excited to join the Orlando Health family, which has a strong history of providing exceptional care to the communities it serves,” said Jose R. Rosado, MD, vice chairman of FHV Health. “Joining Orlando Health allows us to further advance our ability to provide innovative and quality services.” 

Founded almost 25 years ago, FHV Health brings together specialists in vascular surgery, primary care and cardiology to detect diseases earlier and treat them more effectively. The practice has provided access to world-renowned medical innovation and nationally recognized heart and vascular experts. FHV Health cardiologists were the first to bring procedures like cardiac catheterizations, coronary stenting as a superior alternative to traditional “clot-buster” therapy, and minimally invasive abdominal aortic aneurysm repair to the area, increasing patient options for lifesaving and diagnostic procedures. 

“The mission of FHV Health has always been to bring together the talents and expertise of leading physicians to our patients and this alignment with Orlando Health does just that,” said David C. Lew, MD, chairman of FHV Health. “We’re looking forward to increasing the positive health impacts we can make in our communities as we look to the future.”
