Tampa, FL (Feb. 9, 2021) – Tampa General Hospital Foundation has been chosen as the partner charity to receive a $100,000 donation celebrating the grand opening of the newest Rooms To Go furniture showroom at the corner of Dale Mabry Highway and Columbus Drive in Tampa, Florida.
The generous donation will help support Tampa General’s ongoing research and treatment efforts brought on by the COVID-19 global pandemic.
"The Rooms To Go family would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to Tampa General Hospital and all of its front-line workers,” said Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Seaman. “With our corporate office located in the Tampa area, and so many of our team members and associates living here, we are more than grateful for your remarkable efforts to provide healthcare during this unprecedented pandemic. On behalf of all of us at Rooms To Go, please accept this donation to assist in your ongoing fight against Covid-19.”
Tampa General Hospital has been on the forefront of the pandemic battle since March 2020. Since that time, Tampa General clinical teams have continued to provide world-class care to patients.
- On December 5, 2020 Tampa General celebrated the opening of the Global Emerging Diseases Institute – a state of the art research facility that provides world-class care for patients battling COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
- On December 14, 2020 Tampa General was one of only five hospitals in the state to receive the first delivery of COVID-19 vaccine. Shortly after receiving the shipment, TGH vaccinated the first nurse in Florida against COVID-19.
- In just the first four weeks, TGH delivered 10,000 vaccinations.
“We are incredibly thankful for this donation from Rooms To Go,” said Tampa General Hospital Foundation’s Senior Vice-President and Chief Development Officer, Frann Richards. “This generous donation will allow Tampa General to continue the ongoing battle against COVID-19 in our community.”
