TGH is consistently recognized for providing world-class patient care. However, our commitment to healing extends far beyond curing. Even when a cure is not possible, we promote healing by offering compassion, providing accurate information and fostering reasonable expectations. We create trusted, dynamic doctor-patient relationships that are built on a foundation of shared knowledge—the clinician’s expertise and the patient’s self-awareness. We believe the greatest healing outcomes and the best health care results are made possible through that important partnership.
As the greater Tampa Bay region's first and largest teaching hospital, TGH has been affiliated with the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine since the school enrolled its charter class in 1971. Together, TGH and USF Health form the leading academic medical center on the west coast of Florida. Through close collaboration, we are transforming the ways in which medical schools and residency programs are preparing tomorrow’s physicians to practice the medicine of the future, which is continually being shaped by new technologies, changing regulations and shifting patient expectations.
At TGH, health care and innovation go hand in hand. Innovation is the engine that drives us forward as we develop real-world solutions to the highly complex issues facing the health care industry today. We are dedicated to conducting game-changing clinical research, pioneering breakthrough treatments and training the next generation of health care professionals.
Caring for everyone - Every Day
TGH is committed to providing safe, efficient and world-class care for all. To do so, we must have an engaged and empowered team as well as the dedication of every team member. And we must go above and beyond fulfilling our professional, certification and accreditation requirements. This commitment requires us to make a concerted effort to blend the very best of the art and science of medicine so we can better meet the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs of our patients. We not only care for people—we also care about them.
TGH’s shared purpose began as an idea for a way to achieve our vision to become the safest, most innovative academic health system in America. Like many powerful ideas, it has evolved into a passion. We are on a constant quest to make things better for our patients, our team members and our community. As such, our shared purpose encapsulates our hope for the future.
