TAMPA, Fla., July 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tampa General Hospital and the University of South Florida are progressing with their new enhanced affiliation, defining a name and beginning a national search for the new organization's first leader. The milestones keep the October 2021 start date on target and are in sync with overall transition planning that has taken place since announcing the broadened affiliation last summer.
Now branded as the University of South Florida Tampa General Physicians, the new organization creates a combined management services organization with more than 800 health care providers under a unified management structure, becoming one of the largest academic medical groups in the state of Florida. This united group strengthens the long-standing relationship between TGH and the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, the leading academic medical center on the West Coast of Florida.
"These latest steps in our transition plan reflect the tremendous excitement and momentum for the October 2021 launch of the new enhanced affiliation between the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital," said USF President Steven Currall. "Defining the affiliation's identity and beginning the leadership search are vital milestones in our rigorous process to assure the balance and protections for both organizations."

The new nonprofit organization was created by joining the administrative infrastructure of Tampa General Medical Group (TGMG) and the USF Health physician faculty practice group. Once fully launched in October, the organization will provide unified management and support structure for physicians employed by both USF Health and TGMG, allowing for more coordinated care and increased patient access to the kind of world-class, specialized care typically found only at academic medical centers. The new organization also promotes coordinated and strategic planning, investment, and joint accountability across both organizations' shared clinical, research, and teaching efforts.
"Patients will experience the best of both worlds as we come together as one united physicians group," said John Couris, Tampa General president and CEO. "TGH, USF and our private practice physicians have always had the most success when working together to improve health in Tampa Bay. Now that we are more closely strategically aligned, we can create a powerhouse that delivers world-class health care on the west coast of Florida."
