AdventHealth announces CEOs of 2 Florida hospitals

AdventHealth, one of the nation’s largest health systems, has named two new leaders in its Central Florida Division.

Both leaders are slated to begin their new rules, Sunday, June 4.

Doug Harcombe has been named the CEO of AdventHealth Lake Nona. AdventHealth is building a new hospital campus in Orlando’s Lake Nona community. Construction on the new hospital, which will include a medical office building, is slated to begin this summer.

Harcombe will continue to serve as CEO of the division’s South market, overseeing the care network  in southeast Orlando and Osceola County.

“Lake Nona is a place where innovation, health, learning and medicine all come together to create a dynamic community,” Harcombe said in a statement. “I’m excited AdventHealth is investing in the wellness and growth of this community and making it easier for our consumers to access whole-person care closer to home.”

Since 2018, Harcombe has served as CEO of AdventHealth Celebration, and he’s overseen a host of construction projects at that hospital. He’s credited with developing new service lines and strengthening existing services. Harcombe also oversaw the construction of a $125 million tower, among other projects.
