Tampa General extends CEO's tenure 10 years

John Couris, president and CEO of Florida Health Sciences Center doing business as Tampa General Hospital, has accepted an offer from the board that extends the terms of his employment agreement for another decade. 

Mr. Couris has helmed the academic health system since 2017, according to a June 21 news release. Under his leadership, Tampa General has navigated COVID-19; partnered with GE Healthcare to launch a care coordination center utilizing AI; expanded its affiliation with the University of South Florida and established a unified management umbrella for USF physicians; and grown its network of ambulatory services from 17 to more than 130 practices. 

Additionally, Mr. Couris is leading a $550 million master facility plan — the largest in the health system's history — and the Tampa medical and research district, described by the news release as "a medical innovation ecosystem located in the heart of the city." 

"Today, we are in the process of designing and launching our organizational strategic plan for the next five years, and we look forward to John leading the team in this exciting next chapter," said Phil Dingle, chair of Tampa General's board of directors.
