Tampa General Hospital and the Tampa General Hospital Foundation have announced that its children’s hospital will be renamed the Muma Children’s Hospital at TGH, in honor of the large contribution from Pam and Les Muma.
Last month, Pam and Les Muma made a transformational gift to TGH, in support of the Children’s Hospital. The Mumas requested the donation amount not be disclosed.
The donation from the Muma’s was the most significant contribution to TGH and the largest gift ever to a children’s hospital in our region.
“There are no limits to the generosity of Pam and Les Muma. Their contribution to Tampa General, in support of the Children’s Hospital, will have a meaningful and lasting impact across the state, most especially on the families and children of our community,” said John Couris, president and chief executive officer of Tampa General Hospital. “This contribution reflects our efforts at Tampa General to transform our nation’s health care landscape, increase access to world-class care across Florida and promote health and wellness in our communities.”
Les was a long-time member of the TGH Board of Directors and he played a significant role in strengthening the partnership between TGH and USF Health. Pam is a past chair of the TGH Foundation board of trustees and is currently on the Elevating Excellence campaign committee.
TGH bares the Muma name throughout its locations and service lines to reflect the generous contributions from the family over the years, including Muma Chair of Neonatology at USF Health, the Lisa Muma Weitz Cell Laboratory at USF Health and the Jennifer Leigh Muma Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at TGH. TGH revealed the new branding of the Muma Children’s Hospital, at TGH, during a holiday celebration for the Women and Children’s team, on Friday night.
