Orange County Nursing Homes Among Those Hardest Hit by Coronavirus

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on April 23, 2020

On Saturday April 18th, officials with the Florida Health Department released a comprehensive list of elder care facilities that have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. According to this latest information, there are 303 long-term care/assisted living centers and nursing homes that have had positive tests for this incredibly deadly disease, including 37 in Central Florida alone.

Since the novel coronavirus began its swift spread across Florida back at the beginning of March, the state has been tight-lipped about which elder care facilities have been afflicted. This latest data released by the surgeon general also included the number of fatalities (169) tied to these facilities, a statistic that had not yet been revealed to the public. In Orange County, there have been 17 reported cases spanning from 10 different facilities, with 2 deaths.

The following is a list of nursing homes and assisted living facilities within Orange County – most of which are located in Orlando – that have reported positive cases of COVID-19 at the time of this writing:

  • Adventist Care Center Orlando North
  • Bridge Assisted Living At Life Care Center Of Orlando
  • Encore At Avalon Park
  • Gentry Park Orlando
  • Guardian Care Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
  • Hunters Creek Nursing And Rehab Center
  • Orlando Va Medical Center At Lake Nona – Community Living Center
  • Orlando Va Medical Center – Community Living Center Dementia Care
  • Rosewood Health And Rehabilitation Center
  • Savannah Court Of Maitland
  • Serenades By Sonata

Additionally, Governor Ron DeSantis has called for an expansion to the Florida National Guard’s coronavirus “strike team” in order to continue a high level of testing for patients and medical personnel working and residing within nursing homes and long-term care facilities. “Today we are raising the bar even further. I am directing the Florida National Guard to create more strike teams to significantly ramp up testing in long term care facilities,” he said while attending a Tallahassee press conference earlier this week.

Although many families must be somewhat relieved that the state’s government has finally been forthcoming with information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and their loved ones, they are no doubt concerned with how this concerning situation will continue to play out.
