Transforming Surgical Care in Tampa Bay
At Florida Hospital Tampa, our mission is to extend the healing ministry of Christ - by treating the whole person - mind, body and spirit.
Today, we care for approximately 25,000 patients each year and the number of people who will require the level and quality of specialty care only we can deliver will continue to grow, as our population grows. Our patient population is so much more than a number – it is made up of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, neighbors, friends, co-workers, and virtually everyone in the Tampa Bay community and beyond.
As the number of patients grows, we must grow too, so we can confidently deliver on the promise of providing whole-person, transformational care.
We are embarking on a monumental journey of building a brand new, six-story surgical and patient care tower by 2021. The new tower will ensure state-of-the-art medical and surgical care for generations to come; and will be the largest surgical expansion in the history of Florida Hospital Tampa and Tampa Bay.
Surgical services is one of the most of the most important cornerstones of our hospital. We provide a full range of specialty, urgent and emergency operative procedures 24/7. The addition of the new tower will provide:
- 314,000 additional square feet
- Two patient floors with 100 spacious private patient rooms including a 24-bed critical care unit.
- A total of 24 surgical suites, large enough to accommodate robotic technologies and the multiple specialty teams required for the most complex surgical procedures
- A new main entrance to the hospital, a two-story atrium and lobby, patient registration and pre-admission testing areas, kids’ play area, deli, retail spaces, gift shop, an auditorium and chapel.
We ask that you join us in standing tall for our community. We have kicked off a $21 million capital campaign to ensure the completion of this critical expansion. There are many ways you can become involved. We welcome the opportunity to give you a tour of our campus and overview of the construction process.
We are honored and grateful to have received a magnificent lead gift from Jugal and Manju Taneja to name the new building “The Taneja Center for Innovative Surgery.”
We are pleased to welcome Dick and Linda Greco as Honorary Chairs of the campaign.
