Transforming Innovative Surgical Care in Tampa Bay

We’re expanding to better serve you with a brand new surgical tower that bring even more innovative and compassionate health care to our community.

Opening in Fall 2021, the Taneja Center for Surgery will add 18 brand new, state-of-the-art surgical operating rooms, each equipped with advanced technology leading to enhanced patient outcomes. The tower will include modern and spacious private rooms with beautiful large windows and elegant, upscale finishes to create a calm and peaceful healing environment.

This major expansion will also create a new two-story atrium main entrance for the hospital, including convenient access to the newly renovated parking garage and complimentary valet parking. The light-filled lobby includes natural gardens and several seating areas, and will feature first-floor amenities like a large gift shop, coffee shop with healthy food and beverages, modern auditorium and meeting spaces, and a serene chapel for prayer and reflection.

The second floor overlooks the lobby and features an expansive family waiting room with cozy, comfortable seating. The fourth floor includes a refreshment lounge and a tropical rooftop terrace that offers an opportunity for fresh air and the healing power of nature. On the fifth floor, in addition to private patient rooms, a rehabilitation gym for patients overlooks expansive views of the area and the rooftop terrace.
