St. Joseph’s Hospital, Robins & Morton, HOK Architecture, Carastro Engineering and honored guests joined together to celebrate the structural topping out of the St. Joseph’s Hospital patient tower expansion located in Tampa, Florida, on Sept. 10.
The expansion project will include a new six-story patient tower that will house a two-story lobby, waiting and on-call rooms and three patient care floors with 90 private patient rooms. A new bridge will connect St. Joseph’s Hospital to St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital, allowing for patient transport from one facility to the other.
“Robins & Morton is proud to partner with BayCare and St. Joseph’s Hospital on this exciting project,” Robins & Morton Senior Superintendent Steve Williams said. “The scope of this project connects St. Joseph’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital and St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital, providing safe and efficient pedestrian paths between all three facilities. We look forward to completing this exciting addition, ensuring BayCare and St. Joseph’s Hospital continues to provide superior healthcare services to the Tampa community.”
The patient tower expansion is scheduled to be completed in mid-2020.
