"The topping out of AdventHealth Riverview Hospital is a significant milestone in our efforts to expand our reach and provide convenient access to quality health care throughout West Florida," said David Ottati, President and CEO of the AdventHealth West Florida Division. "Our partnership with Robins & Morton and HuntonBrady has been invaluable in our expansion efforts, and we're excited to continue working together to improve the health of the communities that we serve."
Once complete, the four-story, 282,000-square-foot hospital will serve one of the fastest-growing communities in Hillsborough County, providing emergency, cardiology, obstetrics, gynecology, labor and delivery, orthopedic, and urology services. It will house 82 patient beds with the ability to expand to 200 beds based on future needs. Additionally, there will be a medical office plaza.
"We are excited to bring our brand of whole person and high-quality health care to the fast-growing Riverview community," said Jason Newmyer, AdventHealth Riverview President and CEO. "We look forward to improving the health and well-being of the community when we open our new hospital in the fall of 2024."
AdventHealth Riverview will eventually employ around 2,000 people, making the hospital a job creator for the community. Robins & Morton is serving as the general contractor, and HuntonBrady is serving as the architect.
"We're proud to once again work with AdventHealth West Florida Division to build a new, full-service hospital for our community," Robins & Morton Tampa Office Leader Todd Watson said. "This hospital will serve Riverview for generations to come, and it's a great feeling to know that our teams had a hand in making it a reality."
