In 2016, Halifax Health received approval from the Agency for Healthcare Administration, the chief health policy and planning entity for the state of Florida, to build a 96-bed, full-service hospital in Deltona. When complete, the hospital will have six levels and will offer laboratory, imaging, pharmacy, endoscopy and surgical services, including two fully-equipped operating rooms. The hospital will also include a catheterization laboratory/interventional radiology, a post-anesthesia care unit, and an intensive care unit.
Additional amenities will include food service, a gift shop, and a chapel. A supporting central energy plant and surface parking are also a part of the $105-million project that, when complete, will total 202,242 square feet of new construction.
Direct access will be provided from the new hospital to the existing free-standing emergency department located nearby. Opened in April 2017, Halifax Health Emergency Department of Deltona features a full-service imaging center, 16 beds and 12 examination rooms, including a bariatric examination room; an area for trauma patients; an isolation room for patients with a potentially infectious disease; and a decontamination room for patients exposed to hazardous material or chemicals.
