The Sanitarium Collection contains photographs and documents directly related to the Sanitarium campus and date between 1913 and 1991. The collection is named after the original medical facility, Florida Sanitarium and Hospital, that stood on the location of the current day AdventHealth Orlando. The Florida Sanitarium and Hospital opened in 1908, and by 1913 a nursing program was in operation. During the years leading up to 1991, numerous hospital-based medical education programs functioned to train health care professionals in whole or in part, as some students visited from other Adventist educational institutions to solely complete clinicals.
