US-based Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and the Tampa General Hospital Foundation have announced the renaming of the children’s hospital as ‘Muma Children’s Hospital at TGH’.

The new name reflects the generosity of philanthropists in Florida, Pam and Les Muma, who contributed to Tampa General in support of the Children’s Hospital.

TGH president and CEO John Couris said: “This contribution reflects our efforts at Tampa General to transform our nation’s healthcare landscape, increase access to world-class care across Florida and promote health and wellness in our communities.

“When we invest in the health and well-being of our children at an early age, we have the opportunity to establish a foundation for a long and healthy life, and by increasing access to exceptional care for the youngest patients who are battling the most complex illnesses, we can help save lives that have just begun.”

The Muma Children’s Hospital at TGH provides specialised services and quality medical care to both children and their families.

It includes a Pediatric Trauma Center, which is verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as Level I.

Ranging from simple injuries to major trauma, and basic ailments to complex conditions that are chronic, the hospital’s medical team will address the psychological, social and developmental needs of children besides medical treatment.

Tampa General Hospital board of directors chair Drew Graham said: “The Mumas’ significant investments in Tampa General are a testament to the strength of our organisation and the commitment of our physicians and teams.”

A team of professionals at Tampa General will support the needs of the whole child, whether it is neonates or adolescents.

The hospital will have paediatric specialists and surgeons, psychologists, paediatric-certified nurses, certified child life specialists and paediatric therapists.

In August 2023, Tampa General Hospital, Lifepoint Behavioral Health, and USF Health jointly broke ground on the four-storey facility, TGH Behavioral Health Hospital, in Tampa’s Medical and Research District in the US.

The facility is expected to become operational late next year.
