Another expansion move happened in October 2021, when the hospital partnered with the Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, Proton Therapy Partners, and Florida Urology Partners to build a free-standing proton therapy center in Tampa Bay.

“It's specificity of delivery allows us to treat hard-to-reach tumors, those wrapped around critical organs, and tumors that have come back after radiation. It's also the safest form of radiation we have to offer our pediatric and young adult patients suffering from cancer,” Dr. Richard Tuli, chief of radiation oncology in the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine at the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital, said at the time.

The Cancer Institute at Tampa General will manage the new center, with the build slated to start in Q2 2022.

In addition to these moves, the hospital announced in September 2021, that it was embarking on a massive $550 million expansion and upgrade plan, touted as the largest master facility plan in its history.

The plans included the June opening of a new $17.5 million intensive care unit with 34 new rooms. Also on the drawing board: four new floors, 12 operating rooms and 100 beds for the Bayshore Pavilion; renovation and expansion of the burn center; construction of a 15,000-square-foot, free-standing emergency department; new clinic space at the TGH Brandon Healthplex Oncology Institute; expansion of the hospital’s central energy plant; and renovation of the main lobby at the main campus.

The investment, noted Tampa General's EVP and COO Kelly Cullen, “supports the creation of tomorrow’s TGH.”
