Hospital Embarks On Historic $256M Expansion

Florida Hospital Tampa, part of Adventist Health System, has broken ground on a six-story, 300,000-square-foot patient and surgical tower at the corner of Fletcher Avenue and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard in Tampa.

The $256 million expansion project will be known as the Taneja Center for Innovative Surgery and is slated to open in 2021. According to a press release, it will feature 24 new operating rooms, a new hospital entrance and more than 100 private dedicated surgical care beds. It will create an estimated 117 clinical jobs in its first year of operation, and 587 jobs by the fifth year, the release states.

“This is a state-of-the-art project that will provide specialty care in Tampa Bay that you can’t find anywhere else in our area,” states Brian Adams, president and CEO of Florida Hospital Tampa, in the release. “Our goal is to design a surgical tower that isn’t just relevant today, but will be relevant 30 years from now, combining surgical innovation and the most advanced robotic technologies with the nation’s best physicians.”

The family of Jugal and Manju Taneja provided a generous gift toward the expansion project — the largest donation ever to the hospital’s west Florida division.

“This is about more than growth and expansion,” states Mike Schultz, president and CEO of Florida Hospital West Florida Division, in the release. “This is about connecting our community to the kind of expert health care that’s needed and delivering it with Florida Hospital’s unique brand of inspired, compassionate care.”

Florida Hospital Scores Naming Rights For New Tampa Bay Buccaneers Training Center

Florida Hospital’s parent company has made a major move to its marketing game plan and has secured naming rights for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ new indoor training facility and the team’s headquarters.

The new training center will now be called the AdventHealth Training Center, said Tampa Bay Buccaneers Owner and Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer during a press conference at the Buccaneers headquarters on Monday. The team has been growing the partnership with the parent company over the past six years, he said. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The naming rights should boost Florida Hospital’s parent company Adventist Health System in its effort to rebrand itself AdventHealth. That officially starts Jan. 2, 2019.

AdventHealth will also have its name on the corporate headquarters at One Buc Place.

“Just as our company is changing, it’s an opportunity for a change in our relationship with the Buccaneers. It’s an introduction to a different [type of] health care,” said Mike Schultz, senior executive vice president at AdventHealth.

The $20 million Buccaneers indoor practice space allows the team to practice through the harsh heat and rain of area summers. Indoor practice facilities are among the hottest new amenities for NFL teams.

The 112,660-square-foot indoor facility is now in its second season of use.

The new indoor facility comes available just as Raymond James Stadium has wrapped up the fourth phase of its $150 million improvement project and will be the venue to host the upcoming Super Bowl LV in 2021.
