St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital
Children are at the heart of what we do
When it comes to healthcare, children are not just “small adults.” Children have different diseases—sometimes even different symptoms—than those of adults, and their care requires specific expertise and appropriate equipment. As Tampa’s first acute care facility dedicated solely to children, St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital (SJCH) was designed to ensure the highest quality pediatric care for children, even those with the most complex or chronic conditions.
Our children’s hospital is an all-private room facility that both accommodates and encourages a parent to room in. We know that children get better faster with the active involvement of family and that parents know their children better than we ever could, so our facility provides day beds/sofas in every room and laundry facilities on every floor. Our 186-bed facility is home to a medical staff of nearly 200 physicians, including roughly 80 pediatric specialists, that represent virtually every major pediatric sub-specialty. SJCH has earned a reputation for pediatric excellence, and attracts families from across our region and beyond. We are the third largest children’s hospital in Florida, providing outstanding medical and surgical pediatric care that outranks all other hospitals in Hillsborough County.
