HCA Florida South Tampa Hospital has unveiled its new $50-million Hospital for Endocrine Surgery for its newly created program dedicated to the surgical treatment of endocrine tumors.
The hospital is organized around the surgical treatment of each of the endocrine glands: thyroid, adrenal and parathyroid.
The new facility includes 15 private inpatient rooms and eight operating rooms supported by 33 individual surgery bays for treatment, before and after surgery.
HCA Florida Healthcare invested in technology and infrastructure upgrades to bring thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal tumor programs under one roof. Radiology, nuclear medicine, laboratory and pathology services all have a focus on endocrine tumor diagnosis and treatment. Advanced therapies, such as radiofrequency ablation of thyroid tumors and minimally invasive scarless robotic thyroid surgery, are also available.
Since officially opening in January, the hospital has already surpassed 1,000 patients treated prior to the end of March 2022, according to a statement.
