Leaders in Academic Medicine

In order to provide the best pediatric care, Tampa General Hospital has partnered with the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine and Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. Together, we are able to increase access to pediatric general surgery while providing life-saving care for even the most complex and rarest conditions. 

Focused on a Multidisciplinary Approach

The medical staff at the Muma Children's Hospital at TGH is comprised of pediatric specialists and subspecialists available in only a few hospitals statewide. Likewise, our multidisciplinary team extends throughout the Tampa General Hospital ecosystem, with a variety of highly trained specialists available should their expertise be needed to treat your child.

Accredited and Certified

Tampa General Hospital’s Level I trauma center for adults and children is the first and only program in Florida to achieve verification from the American College of Surgeons (ACS) for the quality of its trauma care. Specialists, including pediatric surgeons and pediatric neurosurgeons, provide the highest level of trauma care for children.

Tampa General’s regional burn center is one of just four in Florida, and the first burn center in the state to earn verification by the American Burn Association/American College of Surgeons. Our burn program also has received disease-specific certification from The Joint Commission.

Our other notable accreditations include:

  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
  • Magnet Hospital designation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for excellence in nursing care
  • Designated by Florida State Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program (BSCIP) as provider of rehabilitation services to adult and pediatric patients
  • Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS)

Supportive of You and Your Family

While treating your child is our main concern, ensuring the comfort of your entire family is just as important to us. We are committed to providing exceptional care in a safe, supportive, welcoming and compassionate environment.

For starters, our facilities are bright, clean and kid-friendly, which helps provide a sense of normalcy for children going through medical treatment. At TGH, kids can be kids! But we also know that sleep and rest are paramount to healing so we take measures to ensure our pediatric patients get the proper rest and downtime they need.

In addition, we offer patients and their families a variety of support services—such as local housing, a playroom, a lounge and educational videos—to help make life during treatment more comfortable.
