AdventHealth Tampa, the flagship 626-bed and tertiary hospital in Tampa Bay, has opened the Taneja Center for Surgery, the new home for Tampa Bay’s surgeons to perform the most complex surgical procedures. The $300 million facility is a six-story, 300,000 square foot state-of-the-art patient and surgical tower with 18 new operating rooms (OR) and 96 private, dedicated post-surgical and critical care patient rooms, according to their press release.
The Taneja Center for Surgery honors Mandeep Taneja who received extended care at AdventHealth Tampa. The Taneja Family provided a generous financial gift to the expansion project, the largest donation that has ever been given to the AdventHealth Tampa Foundation.
“This is more than a new building at AdventHealth Tampa, the Taneja Center for Surgery is a beacon of medical innovation that brings the best doctors and technology together in one place to provide reimagined care for our community,” said Denyse Bales-Chubb, President and CEO at AdventHealth Tampa. “We’re not just expanding our footprint in Tampa Bay’s Uptown District; we’re expanding the opportunities for life changing medically complex care for everyone right here at home.”
As part of the commitment to provide the most advanced medical technology and equipment to patients, the Taneja Center for Surgery at AdventHealth Tampa has enhanced operating rooms with capabilities such as OR pathology, which provides patients with cancer diagnoses faster results than ever before and allows surgeons to operate immediately, if needed.
The center also has specialized visible light disinfection in every operating room to fight infection before, during, and after surgery; a specialized operating room with a negative pressure isolation area to keep clinicians and infectious patients safer in emergency surgeries, and a state-of-the-art sterile processing department (SPD), which plays a critical role in elevating the quality and safety of the best in class equipment being deployed in our operating rooms.
The AdventHealth Tampa Foundation is raising a total of $21 million to support AdventHealth’s investment in the Taneja Center for Surgery.
