Florida Hospital Tampa, Robins & Morton, Hunton Brady Architects, TLC Engineering for Architecture and guests joined together to 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.
The new patient and surgical tower, to be named the Taneja Center for Innovative Surgery, is scheduled for completion in 2021.
