About Tampa General Hospital
Tampa General Hospital is a private not-for-profit hospital and one of the most comprehensive medical facilities in West Central Florida serving a dozen counties with a population in excess of 4 million. As one of the largest hospitals in Florida, Tampa General is licensed for 1,007 beds, and with more than 8,000 employees, is one of the region’s largest employers.
TGH is the region's first and largest teaching hospital, having been affiliated with the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine since the school was created in the early 1970s. As the primary teaching hospital for the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, over 400 residents and fellows are assigned to TGH for specialty training in areas ranging from general internal medicine to neurosurgery. In addition, USF medical students, nurses and physical therapy students all receive part of their training at Tampa General. Faculty of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine admit and care for patients at TGH, as do private-practice physicians, many of whom also serve as adjunct clinical faculty.
With five medical helicopters* transporting critically injured or ill patients from 23 surrounding counties to the ONLY level I trauma center in the region, and one of two ABA-verified Adult & Pediatric burn centers in Florida, our care is second to none
