Orlando Health to open new emergency room in East Orlando

Strategic expansion represents a commitment to bring health care services closer to home for local families.

Orlando, FL (June 2, 2021) – A long anticipated move that expands access to high-quality health care in east Orlando will happen on June 7 when the new Orlando Health Emergency Room – Randal Park opens its doors for those living, working and playing in this community. Located on a 15-acre campus at the northeast corner of Dowden Road and Randal Park Boulevard, near State Road 417, the new facility will provide emergency outpatient care to meet the increasing needs of the region.

Development of the 42,000-square-foot freestanding emergency room (ER) and future medical pavilion began in 2018. It will offer the same level of care and services as a hospital-based ER and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The new facility features 12 treatment rooms, diagnostic imaging – including CT scan, ultrasound and X-ray – and a full-service laboratory. There is also a helipad and ambulance bay that will allow patients requiring a higher level of care to be transported to Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, the Orlando Health facility to which this new site is affiliated. The new ER will be staffed by board-certified and board eligible emergency medicine doctors, and experienced nurses.

“Orlando Health is happy to support the health care needs of this vibrant, growing community,” said Thibaut van Marcke, senior vice president, Orlando Health Southeast Region, and president of Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital. “The emergency services we offer are an important effort to provide the highest standard of medical care closer to home. All patients who come through the doors of this facility can be assured they are receiving the best care.”

The Orlando Health Emergency Room – Randal Park is located on the first floor of a three-story building that can expand to meet the needs of the community’s continued growth. Future expansion plans include a medical pavilion that will house physician offices and specialty services such as cardiology, oncology, orthopedics and more on the second and third floors.
