St. Joseph’s Hospital Breaks Ground on $126 Million Expansion

St. Joseph’s Hospital officially kicked off their latest expansion project with a ceremonial groundbreaking on April 19th at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd location.  The $126 million project will be completed in late 2019 and features a new six story tower, connecting bridge to St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital, covered entry, 90 new private patient rooms, a two-story lobby and waiting and on-call rooms.

“Patients will appreciate the comfortable new rooms, our staff is excited about having a bridge to connect us with St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital across the street, and those who pass by will enjoy the new look that updates our 1960s exterior,” stated St. Joseph’s Hospital President Kimberly Guy.

St. Joseph’s Hospital is a cherished institution in the West Tampa community, providing state of the art compassionate medical care and thousands of jobs.  The West Tampa Chamber congratulates our valued member partner and Media Campaign Sponsor on this major milestone and wishes them great success on their newest endeavor.
