Tampa General Hospital’s Women’s Center has 21 labor/delivery suites designed to feel more like bedrooms with soft colors, wood-like floors, wood cabinets for medical equipment and storage, televisions with DVD-VCR-CD players, and private bathrooms and showers.
To enhance its spa-like theme, each room in the center has a large window with an expansive view, space for family and a large built-in sofa that can be opened into a bed.
The Women’s Center has four C-section rooms, four gynecology operating rooms, an ultrasound suite and an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) laboratory.
The operating rooms are large enough to accommodate staff and equipment for multiple births.
The Women’s Center has two comfortable family lounges – one for the families of patients in labor and one for families of patients undergoing surgery. A paved patio with trees and plants is accessible from the Women’s Center and provides additional space for families, visitors and patients.
Spanish-language tours are offered on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month at 2:30 p.m., except holidays. Registration is required.
