HCA Launches Construction of Endocrine Surgery Center in Tampa
HCA Healthcare West Florida Division has begun a $50-million construction project on the Hospital for Endocrine Surgery, a campus of Memorial Hospital of Tampa. The 75,000-square-foot campus is expected to attract patients from across the state, nation and the globe for inpatient and outpatient procedures.
“At a single site in Tampa, we will have experienced endocrine surgeons working in a one-of-a-kind environment to create an exceptional patient and family friendly environment equipped with the latest technology and minimally invasive capabilities,” said Ravi Chari, president of HCA Healthcare West Florida. “This is a highly underserved patient population that will benefit greatly from surgery that leads to improved outcomes.”
The new program will include 16 private patient rooms and eight operating rooms supported by 38 pre/post-surgery bays. Chari told the Tampa Bay Times he doesn’t know of any other hospital in the country dedicated solely to treating endocrine tumors.
