AdventHealth Waterman

About the area
Tavares is located in beautiful Lake County, home to more than 1,000 lakes and rivers. It is known as America’s Seaplane City since seaplanes can be spotted flying over the water every day. The unique terrain is made up of rolling green hills and incredible views across the water, with preserves, state parks, wildlife and national forests nearly everywhere you turn. Downtown visitors will find an entertainment district that has an international assortment of restaurants, art galleries, shops, and music venues. There’s always something fun to do in Lake County, from festivals to roadside farm stands, but if you’re looking for something more, Orlando is just a short drive away.

Because we believe that each person is created in the image of God with an inseparable connection between mind, body and spirit, our focus goes beyond treating illness toward helping people achieve optimal well-being so they can enjoy happy, healthy lives. This same philosophy of care is extended to our team members through personal interactions (team lunches, huddles, and prayer) and professional resources (ongoing education, comprehensive benefits, and employee wellness program) to help you be your best and provide the best possible care.
