COMING IN 2015
Since our founding by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany more than 78 years ago, St. Joseph's Hospital's name has been synonymous with compassionate and advanced care. Together, St. Joseph's Hospital, St. Joseph's Women's Hospital, St. Joseph's Children's Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital-North have ensured that virtually all of our community's health care needs could be met with the St. Joseph's Hospital standard of experience and expertise. The Cancer Institute, Heart Center, Stroke Center, Advanced Center for Atrial Fibrillation and Level II Trauma designation are just a few examples of the extraordinary breadth of services St. Joseph's brings to the Tampa Bay area.
In October 2012, construction began on St. Joseph's Hospital-South, the first not-for-profit hospital to serve the growing South Shore area of our community which is now considered to be somewhat medically underserved.
The 352,000 square foot hospital will be located approximately one-half mile east of the intersection of I-75 and Big Bend Road and can be easily accessed via I-75 and Highway 301. The hospital itself will offer something for just about everyone, with 90 private patient suites plus an additional 22 observation rooms.
Emergency Center : A full service, 32-bed unit with all private examination rooms with 10-exam rooms dedicated to fast track patients
Surgical and Interventional Platform: Six operating room suites with two designated for women and two interventional radiology/cardiac catheterization laboratories. Services include general, orthopedic, urology, outpatient pediatric, and gastrointestinal endoscopic surgery; and interventional radiology and cardiac catheterization. The women's platform includes obstetrics assessment, labor and delivery, and women's operating rooms for low-risk obstetrics.
Intensive Care Unit: A high tech, 16-bed intensive care unit for patients with complex medical and surgical needs who require close observation from specially trained nursing staff
Medical/Surgical Units: Two 30-bed medical/surgical units with all private rooms
Mother/Baby Unit: A 14-bed unit with all-private rooms to accommodate mother, baby, and family. A 10-bassinet nursery will also be available. St. Joseph's Hospital-South will be a referral link to St. Joseph's Hospitals (Main Campus) for tertiary care related to trauma services, cardiac surgery, Cancer Institute, Children's Hospital services, neonatal intensive care unit, high risk obstetrics and multiple births.
St. Joseph's Hospital-South will be part of BayCare Health System, a leading community based health system in the Tampa Bay area. Composed of a network of 10 not-for-profit hospitals, outpatient facilities and services such as imaging, lab, behavioral health and home health care, BayCare provides expert medical care throughout a patient's lifetime.
