Patients being rescheduled at other Orlando Health facilities
Orlando Health announced it has temporarily suspended outpatient imaging services at its Orange Ave. location effective today, January 24. The suspension is a result of the month-end lease expiration on the building which is located at 1751 S. Orange Ave. Patients impacted by the change are being notified and provided the opportunity for priority rescheduling at one of the organization’s five other Orlando Health Imaging Centers or at one of its hospital-based outpatient facilities located on its downtown campus. To support the continuum of care, established patients of Orlando Health Imaging Centers can receive imaging services at any Orlando Health facility with no additional out-of-pocket expense until the opening of the new Orange Avenue location. Orlando Health will resume its outpatient imaging services on Orange Avenue this spring in a new Orlando Health-owned facility located across the street from the previous center.
“We understand this change might be inconvenient for some patients and for that, we apologize,” said Daniel Honerbrink, corporate director, Orlando Health Imaging Centers, Ambulatory Services Division. “We hope to make this transition as smooth as possible for patients, who can look forward to our new center opening up later this spring.”
Scheduled for opening in May 2020, the new Orlando Health Imaging Centers – Downtown Orlando will be located at 1800 S. Orange Ave. The one-story, 6,800 square foot facility will be state-of-the-art and will include a 3T wide-bore MRI, a 1.2T high-field ‘open’ MRI, a 128-slice CT, 3D tomographic mammography (biopsy capable), advanced ultrasound, bone-density and digital X-ray capabilities. In addition to technologically-advanced equipment and services delivered in a welcoming setting, the center will also feature ample patient parking adjacent to the building.
“We’re excited for the opening of this new flagship imaging center on the eastern edge of our downtown campus,” said Matt Taylor, AICP, vice president of asset strategy for Orlando Health. “This location will provide superior access and be very convenient for patients who may have multiple Orlando Health appointments downtown on the same day.”
During the temporary suspension of services at the Orange Ave. facility, patients can continue to receive high-quality care and imaging services at other facilities on Orlando Health’s downtown campus or at any of the following locations, which have extended hours and added weekend appointments to accommodate patients:
- Altamonte Springs – 398 E. Altamonte Dr.
- Ocoee – 572 Ocoee Commerce Pkwy.
- Ocoee – 1193 Blackwood Ave. (open MRI)
- Lake Mary – 392 Rinehart Rd.
- Spring Lake – 7243 Della Dr., in the Dr. Phillips area
Additionally, to continue supporting the needs of the growing Central Florida community, Orlando Health will soon open two new imaging centers. The first, scheduled to open in February 2020, is in the Orlando Health
Medical Pavilion – Summerport, which is located at 5151 Winter Garden Vineland Rd. in Windermere. The second, scheduled to open this spring, is located at 1111 W. Fairbanks Ave. in Winter Park. These latest additions will also feature state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging in a warm, welcoming environment
