Tampa General Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital. Tampa General Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Florida, with more than 1,000 licensed beds and serving a dozen counties with a population in excess of 4 million people. The private, nonprofit hospital is also one of the region's largest employers with roughly 7,300 employees.

TGH is the primary teaching affiliate of USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, a school that was created in the early 1970s. The hospital features the area's only Level I trauma center, one of just four burn centers in the state, four medical helicopters that can transport critically injured or ill patients from 23 surrounding counties, a nationally designated comprehensive stroke center and a 32-bed neuroscience intensive care unit. TGH is also home to a leading organ transplant center where surgeons have performed more than 6,000 adult solid organ transplants, including Florida's first successful heart transplant in 1985.

TGH has received Magnet accreditation for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The hospital is also Joint Commission-accredited in 16 disease-specific areas, including bariatric surgery, burn treatment, epilepsy, heart failure, hip, knee and shoulder joint replacement, orthopedic trauma, sleeping disorders and uterine-ovarian cancer, to name a few. TGH also has advanced Joint Commission certifications in stroke care and ventricular assist device. The hospital was ranked No. 1 in the Tampa area by U.S. News & World Report for 2014-15.

In their own words

The Tampa General family is honored to be included in Becker's Top 100 list. We believe this listing recognizes the care and dedication that every one of our 7,300 employees has for making our patients' lives better. It might be the surgeon who performs the most intricate and complex procedures. It could be the nurse who always takes time to ask about a patient's needs. Or the physical therapist who helps a patient take that next step. Our caregivers come to Tampa General every day ready to make a difference in the lives and health of our patients. This recognition is for them.
