Tampa General Hospital (TGH) in Florida, US, has revealed plans for its new 13-storey TGH Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Pavilion, which will house its surgical, neuroscience, and transplant services.

These plans were unveiled to the Tampa City Council, who unanimously approved land rezoning, in preparation for construction activities.

Covering 565,000ft², the new building will feature 144 beds for patients and 32 operating suites.

It will also have expanded capacity for an intensive care unit (ICU), as well as space dedicated to education and training, sterile processing, and emergency response.

The facility will sit adjacent to the main hospital building on Davis Islands. Two of its stories will be reserved for future expansion. 

This is a flagship building of TGH’s Master Facility Plan, which is a $550m expansion strategy, and part of the Tampa Medical & Research District.

Construction on the new building will start next year and is due to be completed in three years.

TGH president and CEO John Couris said: “The TGH Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Pavilion will be an intersection of technology and human ingenuity, where patients can access best-in-class providers, modern equipment, and state-of-the-art facilities. This is one example of how we’re continuing to invest in Tampa General’s high-acuity service lines and strengthening one of the nation’s top ten transplant programmes. We are grateful to Mayor Jane Castor and the members of the city council for their unwavering support for this initiative and our ongoing efforts to expand access to world-class care.”

TGH’s network currently has six hospitals, approximately 14,000 team members and providers, and more than 150 care sites.

Earlier this month, TGH finalised the $294m purchase of Bravera Health.

Through the deal, TGH added community hospitals in Citrus and Hernando Counties, which are now part of the newly established TGH North division.

The health system also recently reached an alliance with Kitson & Partners to provide care to the first solar-powered US town, Babcock Ranch.
