One of the questions we’re quite often asked by prospective buyers is the proximity and quality of the hospitals in the St. Petersburg – Tampa area. We’re blessed to have excellent choices.
Of the 43 hospitals in the greater St. Petersburg – Tampa metropolitan area, Tampa General Hospital and the Moffitt Cancer Center are considered to be the best regional facilities, TGH for their specialties in Diabetes and Endocrinology; Ear, Nose and Throat; Geriatrics; Heart and Heart Surgery; Nephrology; Neurology and Neurosurgery; Orthopedics Pulmonology and Urology; and Moffitt for their cancer research and treatment.
Chris Hounchell & Associates, in partnership with Bay Area Advisors and with the generous support of the community, has raised over $350,000 for the Moffitt Cancer Center and its Advanced Prostate Cancer Collaboration since 2007.
Bayfront Baby Place – A Unique Partnership
Younger buyers, especially those getting ready to start families, want to know about hospitals specializing in obstetric and neonatal care. Here too the St. Petersburg – Tampa region has one of the best, All Children’s Hospital and its Bayfront Baby Place.
Opened in 2010, the Bayfront Baby Place is an innovative collaboration between the Bayfront Medical Center and All Children’s Hospital offering the highest level and most up-to-date technology and facilities available. Housed in an ultra-modern yet warm and inviting atmosphere, Bayfront Baby Place features 13 private birthing suites, a 40-bed postpartum center, four surgical suites for C-Sections and a full nursery. All Children’s neonatal intensive care unit stands ready to treat babies requiring special care.
Pre- and post-natal services are also offered. Bayfront Baby Place has a full menu of prenatal classes for childbirth education, newborn care and infant massage, among many others. Certified lactation consultants are available to pregnant women considering breastfeeding, and at 10 a.m. every Tuesday they host a New Mom Support Group where moms share ideas, concerns and get advice on everything imaginable relating to child care and breastfeeding.
Together, Bayfront Medical Center and All Children’s Hospital has created a partnership (the only one in the country actually) in the Bayfront Baby Place offering the most modern amenities and specialized services families have come to expect in high quality, family-oriented healthcare facilities.
