Moffitt Cancer Center to break ground on Speros FL campus

The groundbreaking for Speros FL will officially kick off construction of the 775-acre Pasco County campus on January 20.

The campus will be used for the future of revolutionary cancer treatment, and research, and will feature 16 million square feet of lab, office, manufacturing and clinical space, according to a statement.

The name, Speros, is a derivative of the Latin verb “Sperare,” meaning “to hope” or “to look forward to” and was announced in December 2022.

“You cannot separate cancer research and treatment from hope, which is the root of the name Speros FL and the driving force behind all that we do at Moffitt Cancer Center,” said Dr. Patrick Hwu, Moffitt president and chief executive officer, in the statement. “Our vision is to be the global epicenter for personalized oncology care and leading research that will revolutionize the way we prevent, find and treat cancer. We look forward to breaking ground on this innovative community and are proud to announce the name, which is an important step in this historic project.”

The groundbreaking at 16828 Ridge Road, Land O’Lakes, starts at 10 a.m.
