Bayfront Health & Other Facilities in the Tampa Bay Region Align Under Orlando Health Name

St. Petersburg, FL (February 20, 2024) – Since October 2020, Pinellas County’s only Adult Trauma center has experienced significant enhancements and been a wonderful addition to the Orlando Health network of hospitals and medical facilities. In its continued commitment to Tampa Bay, Bayfront Health St. Petersburg is proud to add its parent company’s name and transition to Orlando Health Bayfront Hospital, starting March 1st

“We are proud to be a member of the St. Petersburg community. The transition to Orlando Health Bayfront Hospital will result in numerous benefits for both patients and community partners as we continue to grow and align with Orlando Health,” said John Moore, President of Orlando Health Bayfront Hospital and Senior Vice President, Orlando Health, West Region. The new identity helps eliminate confusion between healthcare networks located in Tampa Bay and allows patients to more easily recognize and navigate the full Orlando Health system.

The hospital has experienced significant enhancements that benefit patients, team members and the community.  These include the addition of Orlando Health Emergency Room – Crossroads, Orlando Health Medical Pavilion - Institute Square and Orlando Health Women’s Pavilion – Institute Square (slated to open in 2025). Orlando Health has also developed an annual community grant program and recently partnered with the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg and awarded $4.8 million in grants to local nonprofit organizations that work to improve the health and quality of life locally.

“As Orlando Health continues to expand in the Tampa Bay region with new hospitals opening in Lakeland and Wesley Chapel, and the new partnership with Florida Medical Clinic, it’s important that the community easily recognize the connection to the greater healthcare network,” shared Moore.
