AdventHealth has named Clifton Scott chief operating officer at AdventHealth Palm Coast and AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway, effective June 18.
Scott will oversee the existing hospital on State Road 100 and the new one that is under construction on Palm Coast Parkway. The new hospital is expected to open to patients on Aug. 2; its medical office building will open on June 12, according to a news release from AdventHealth.

“It is an exciting time in the Flagler County and St. Johns communities, and I am looking forward to this next step in my career,” Scott said, according to the news release. “It is an honor to have the opportunity to support the opening of a second hospital in Flagler County. AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway will provide additional convenience and comprehensive care to the community.”
