Oct. 19, 2018 – Florida Hospital Tampa, Robins & Morton, Hunton Brady Architects, TLC Engineering for Architecture and honored guests joined together to officially break ground on the Florida Hospital Tampa Patient and Surgical Tower located in Tampa, Florida.
The $256 million expansion project will include a new six-story surgical patient tower that will house 132 patient beds and 24 operating rooms and various other support services. This new tower is a complement to the highly specialized care delivered in the Pepin Heart Center, also on campus, and will allow patients with complex healthcare cases to receive care they cannot get anywhere else. The project will also include a new Central Energy Plant to serve the addition.
“We are excited about what this expansion means to our community and how it will transform healthcare in Tampa Bay,” Brian Adams, President and CEO of Florida Hospital Tampa said. “The new patient and surgical tower will have the most highly specialized surgeons and the most innovative technology available, making it possible to treat the most complex cases and offer care that isn’t available in our area today.”
The new patient and surgical tower, to be named the Taneja Center for Innovative Surgery, is scheduled for completion in 2021.
