Tampa, FL (May 29, 2020) – Tampa General Hospital has been named one of the “100 Great Hospitals in America” by Becker’s Healthcare, a leading national publication for the health care industry.
It is the seventh year in a row that Tampa General has achieved this distinction. TGH is the only hospital in the Tampa Bay area to be named to the list, the only one on Florida’s West Coast, and one of just four in the state. Becker’s Healthcare is nationally recognizing the hospitals on this list for excellence in clinical care, patient outcomes, and staff and physician satisfaction.
“Tampa General Hospital is proud to be among industry leaders that have achieved advanced accreditation and certification in several specialties across the country. Our vision is to become the safest and most innovative academic health system in America. I am proud of the hard work of all our teams to achieve this recognition for seven years in a row,” said John Couris, Tampa General Hospital President & CEO.
This list also includes industry innovators that have sparked trends in health care technology, hospital management and patient satisfaction. The hospitals were selected based on an analysis of ranking and award agencies, including U.S. News & World Report’s 2019-2020 rankings. U.S. News also ranked TGH as the best hospital in the Tampa-St. Petersburg metro area.
Becker’s noted that the 1,007-bed non-profit hospital “houses the area’s only level 1 trauma center and one of just two adult and pediatric verified burn centers in the state.”
Also, Becker’s named Tampa General in 2019 as:
• One of 40+ hospitals and health systems with great innovation programs
• One of 100 hospitals and health systems with great orthopedic programs
