As the primary teaching hospital for the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, Tampa General serves a 12-county region and provides many medical services found no where else in the Tampa Bay area. We are the region’s only level 1 trauma center, and the state’s only trauma center nationally accredited by the American College of Surgeons for clinical quality.
TGH is the regional burn center, one of the busiest solid organ transplant centers in the United States, and one of the area’s largest in-patient rehabilitation centers.
We work every day to provide patient care that is second-to-none. The Joint Commission performs one of the most rigorous quality reviews of hospitals around the country. They also examine specific medical programs to determine if each meets the criteria to become a disease-specific certified program.
In 2013, Tampa General received this Joint Commission disease-specific certification in 16 clinical programs – more than any other hospital in Florida. The certifications followed an extensive on-site evaluation by a team of Joint Commission reviewers. The programs were evaluated against Joint Commission standards and in interviews with patients and staff.
If you are a patient at the hospital, the one care provider you will have contact with on a daily basis is your nurse. Again, the quality of a hospital’s nursing program can be evaluated and graded. Tampa General has received national recognition for our nursing program.
Tampa General Hospital is a designated Magnet hospital – the highest recognition a hospital can receive for nursing services. The designation was awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, (ANCC) a subsidiary of the American Nurses Association and the largest and most prominent nurse credentialing organization in the country.
The Magnet Program recognizes healthcare organizations that demonstrate excellence in nursing philosophy and practice, adherence to national standards for improving patient care, leadership and sensitivity to cultural and ethnic diversity. Tampa General underwent a rigorous evaluation that included extensive interviews and review of nursing services, clinical outcomes and patient care.
