How the TGH NICU Helped Anna's Family

World-Class Pediatric Surgery & Trauma Care

Tampa General Hospital and USF Health partnered with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg to expand pediatric general surgery services at Tampa General’s Children’s Hospital. This collaboration provides increased access to pediatric general surgery interventions for patients and their families. TGH is the first Level I trauma program in Florida and the only in West Central Florida to achieve verification from the American College of Surgeons (ACS) for the quality of its trauma care. As a result, we are able to handle the most complex and high-risk pediatric cases.

In addition, our Pediatric Day Hospital provides patients with a child-friendly environment and support services for procedures or radiology studies that may require sedation. Anesthesia is provided under the supervision of a board-certified pediatric anesthesiologist.

Children’s Medical Services in a Welcoming Environment

At TGH’s Children's Hospital, we will stop at nothing to ensure children receive world-class care in a comforting and safe environment, regardless of their age and condition.

While providing infants, children and adolescents with life-saving treatments is our priority, we make sure to create a warm and welcoming space for our patients and their families as well. This includes offering access to support services, such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Lightning Playroom for kids, the Parent Lounge (a comfortable spot to rest for parents and guardians) and access to many educational videos and information. We are committed to providing the best care to our patients and their families.
