Today (May 6, 2021), AdventHealth and Walt Disney World announced a first of its kind collaboration, bringing together wonder and wellness. AdventHealth is now the Official Health Care Provider at Walt Disney World Resort, as well as the Official Virtual Health Care Provider at Walt Disney World Resort.

According to the Orlando Sentinel …

  • AdventHealth will build a freestanding emergency room on Disney-owned property and provide virtual consultations, pre-vacation health care planning and prescription medication delivery to Walt Disney World Resort’s guests as the theme park’s new “official” health care provider, the companies announced Thursday.
  • Most of AdventHealth’s services will come with the usual bills and fees, but the arrangement gives visitors greater convenience and peace of mind, said Jeff Vahle, Walt Disney World Resort’s president.
  • And health care concierge services will be free.
  • Under the deal, Disney visitors with chronic health conditions will be able to arrange physical therapy, dialysis treatment or chemotherapy, for instance. They may line up lactation consultants for breastfeeding mothers, reserve wheelchairs or have hospital beds delivered to their Disney hotel rooms. And they can set up telemedicine visits with an AdventHealth doctor if they don’t feel well.

“One of AdventHealth’s top priorities is building a new health care model that is centered [on] the consumer’s needs,” said Trish Smith-Edris, AdventHealth’s chief consumer officer to the Orlando Sentinel.

Eventually, there will be care-sitting services for aged family members who aren’t up to visiting the parks but can’t safely be left alone, said Trish Smith-Edris, AdventHealth’s chief consumer officer.
