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.
