Tampa General Hospital (TGH) is a private, not-for-profit academic medical center, and one of the most comprehensive medical facilities in West Central Florida, serving a dozen counties with a population in excess of 4 million. It is the primary teaching affiliate of the University of South Florida School of Medicine.
One of TGH's centers of excellence is its Children's Medical Center, which includes a state-of-the-art 82 bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. More than 5,500 babies are born at TGH each year, and approximarely 15% of them require the specialized care of the NICU. In addition, as a egional nenonatal referral center, seriously ill newborns from as far away as 150 miles are transferred to TGH.
The new facility includes a variety of special features, including increased square footage per bed, the utilization of private bed and small pods, more caregiving and personal space at the bedside, variable lighting, and the incorporation of family support space.
As part of its much larger NICU, TGH agreed to allocate space for two Caroline's Rooms which feature custom artwork and furniture, window treatments and lamps.
