Tampa General Hospital
is expanding its reach by strengthening its partnership with the University of South Florida and launching a new line of urgent care clinics. During a USF board of trustees meeting Thursday <6.6.19>, the hospital's CEO, John Couris, said he wants to help create a "medical district" in and around downtown Tampa with the help of USF Health and its Morsani College of Medicine. In addition to Tampa General committing to a $20 million lease of 25,000 square feet of space inside the medical school's new building downtown, Couris and USF medical school dean Dr. Charles Lockwood want to create a more seamless process for patients being treated by USF or Tampa General physicians. The new joint venture would create a "management services organization" that would streamline services, from medical records to scheduling patients between appointments at USF, Tampa General and private practice physicians with privileges at both places.
