For the fifth consecutive year, TGH was recognized as the highest-ranking hospital in Tampa Bay by U.S. News & World Report, with a national ranking in five specialties including the highest in the state for Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Gastroenterology & GI Surgery and Orthopedics.
In addition, Becker’s Healthcare, a leading source of business and legal information for health care executives, named TGH to its 100 Great Hospitals in America for 2020 — for the seventh consecutive year.
Tampa General’s reputation has also earned the attention of state and federal officials. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Gov. Ron DeSantis stopped by to celebrate the opening of its mission command center, which uses data to increase efficiency and improve patient outcomes. By November 2020, just one year after it opened, CareComm delivered more than $40 million in real savings to patients and the community by reducing the length of hospital stays and improving patient outcomes.
