Tampa General Hospital is preparing to break ground in the coming months on a new TGH Behavioral Health Hospital deep in the heart of Tampa’s medical district.
It’s just the latest in a series of steps taken by TGH to bolster the area’s burgeoning medical district, which has been drawing talent, biotech and venture capital to the region.
Tampa’s medical district is transforming the area into a complete ecosystem of health care innovation: increasing access, providing greater quality care at a lower cost to patients.
“Tampa General is committed to meeting the wide spectrum of health and wellness needs of our community, including all aspects of behavioral health, which are more in demand than ever before,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General Hospital, in a statement.
The new TGH Behavioral Health Hospital will offer a full range of inpatient and outpatient services led by the region’s leading psychiatrists from USF Health.
The four-story, 83,000-square-foot facility will offer 96 inpatient beds. Tampa General Behavioral Health Hospital will be adjacent to the new Tampa General Rehabilitation Hospital.
Construction is expected to begin in 2022 or early 2023, opening is scheduled for late 2024.
