DAVENPORT, Fla., Oct. 6, 2021 — AdventHealth and Bond Clinic are forming an affiliation that will bring greater access to primary care and specialty options to Polk County residents, with a common goal of providing whole-person care that is easy-to-navigate and convenient for all patients.
Polk County continues to rapidly grow – outpacing both the state and nation with a 20% increase in the past 10 years. Together, AdventHealth and Bond Clinic will recruit dozens of physicians over the next five years in a variety of specialties.
“As Polk County grows, it’s important that health care services keep pace. We’re committed to redesigning a health system that’s built around the consumer, and that means bringing world-class and easily accessible health care that’s close to home,” said Brian Adams, CEO of AdventHealth’s Polk market. “Bond Clinic is an esteemed organization with a long history of clinical excellence. This affiliation will allow us to continue our collective great work and extend our mission of whole person care to more areas in Polk County.”
Bond Clinic has been a leader in value-based health care in Polk County for more than 70 years, and today has more than 90 specialty providers in practices that span the county, including in Winter Haven, Lakeland, Davenport and Lake Wales.
AdventHealth in 2019 purchased two hospitals in Polk County, AdventHealth Heart of Florida and AdventHealth Lake Wales; several physician practices, now part of AdventHealth Medical Group; and the AdventHealth Four Corners ER.
AdventHealth was recently named the No. 1 hospital in the Orlando metro area by U.S. News and World Report and Newsweek has named the hospital system as one of the world’s best.
Under the affiliation, AdventHealth and Bond Clinic will coordinate to meet the growing demand for primary care and specialty providers in the Polk market. Together they will develop innovative, value-based care models designed to deliver the highest level of quality care to Polk County residents.
“Bond Clinic and AdventHealth share a vision of providing high-quality, patient-centered care. We are also committed to giving our patients a unique experience — one that brings uncommon compassion and clinical excellence to every patient from the minute they walk through our doors,’’ said Bond Clinic President/CEO Dr. Panagiotis Iakovidis. “We’re pleased to partner with AdventHealth, and together, we will continue to elevate health care in Polk County.”
