Welcome to the Tampa General Hospital Web Site

In a diverse city known for its rich culture and beautiful beaches, Tampa General Hospital offers yet another incentive – world-class health care. Tampa General is a private not-for-profit hospital and one of the most comprehensive medical facilities in West Central Florida serving a dozen counties with a population in excess of 4 million. As one of the largest hospitals in Florida, Tampa General is licensed for 1,018 beds, and with approximately 6,600 employees, is one of the region’s largest employers.

Tampa General Hospital has been affiliated with the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine since the school was created in the early 1970s. Tampa General is the primary teaching affiliate of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine and over 300 residents are assigned to Tampa General Hospital for specialty training in areas ranging from general internal medicine to neurosurgery. In addition, USF medical students, nurses and physical therapy students all receive part of their training at Tampa General. Faculty of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine admit and care for patients at Tampa General as do community physicians, many of whom also serve as adjunct clinical faculty.

TGH is the area’s only level I trauma center and one of just four burn centers in Florida. With five medical helicopters we are able to transport critically injured or ill patients from 23 surrounding counties to receive the advanced care they need. The hospital is home to one of the leading organ transplant centers in the country, having performed more than 6,000 adult solid organ transplants, including the state’s first successful heart transplant in 1985. TGH is a state-certified comprehensive stroke center, and its 32-bed Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit is the largest on the west coast of Florida. Other outstanding centers include cardiovascular, orthopedics, high risk and normal obstetrics, urology, ENT, endocrinology, and the Children’s Medical Center, which features a nine-bed pediatric intensive care unit and one of just three outpatient pediatric dialysis units in the state. As the region’s leading safety net hospital, Tampa General is committed to providing area residents with excellent and compassionate health care ranging from the simplest to the most complex medical services.
