WESLEY CHAPEL, FL – On a bright Tuesday morning, July 9, 2024, AdventHealth and Pasco County officials gathered to break ground on the new Meadow Pointe off-site Emergency Room, marking an exciting milestone for the rapidly growing community between AdventHealth Wesley Chapel and AdventHealth Zephyrhills.


This new ER, located at 5170 Chapel Commerce Drive in Wesley Chapel, FL, will be more than 13,000 square feet and feature 12 patient beds and two triage rooms. It will also offer vital imaging and lab services. The $26 million project is expected to be completed in the first half of 2025 and will create over 30 new jobs in Pasco County.


“Pasco County is growing quickly, and we want to make sure we’re meeting the needs of our community,” said Mike Murrill, president and CEO of AdventHealth Zephyrhills, AdventHealth Dade City, and AdventHealth Connerton. “We are committed to expanding our emergency care services footprint and making it easy for our neighbors to access AdventHealth’s robust network of care.”


The AdventHealth Meadow Pointe ER will be the latest addition to the organization's eight other freestanding emergency rooms across the Tampa Bay Area. It will be supported by a dedicated EMS fleet of 21 ambulances and AdventHealth AirStar 1, a medical helicopter ready to transport critical patients across the region.


“I’m excited to see this built,” said Ryan Guynn, Assistant Fire Chief of Pasco County Fire Rescue. “Without a facility to bring our sick and injured to, fire rescue is useless. This facility is going to provide us with another place where we can get our Pasco County citizens timely, professional health care.”

The groundbreaking event was a celebration, with AdventHealth West Florida Division leaders, government officials, including Rep. Randy Maggard and Pasco County Commissioner Seth Weightman, and representatives from Robins & Morton construction in attendance.


“The groundbreaking of AdventHealth Meadow Pointe ER also celebrates our long-term partnership with AdventHealth,” said Todd Watson, Division Manager at Robins & Morton. “Our work at this facility will reflect our commitment to enhancing both patient and healthcare worker experiences through thoughtful, efficient, and quality-driven construction.”

As Pasco County continues to grow, the new Meadow Pointe ER will play a vital role in providing accessible, high-quality emergency care to its residents, ensuring that the community's health needs are met swiftly and effectively.
