Coping with a new or chronic medical condition can be challenging. As part of the multidisciplinary medical team, psychologists and neuropsychologists work with individuals and their caregivers to promote recovery and improve quality of life. We also provide evaluation, education, and coping strategies to help with understanding medical treatment.
Our team of licensed, doctoral level staff has extensive education and experience evaluating and treating the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral impact of health difficulties. We apply knowledge from psychological research and practice while working closely with physicians and other members of the team to promote optimal treatment outcomes.
Psychology services at TGH address the needs of many individuals served in our bariatric, burn, chronic pain management, neuroscience, outpatient, trauma, psychiatry, rehabilitation, transplant, and pediatric programs. Psychologists and neuropsychologists are fully credentialed members of the TGH Medical Staff. Our dedication to providing world-class patient care has earned TGH placement on Newsweek's World's Best Hospitals 2021 list. TGH is one of only six hospitals in Florida and the only hospital in Tampa Bay to receive this recognition.
