St. Petersburg General Hospital is proud to provide outstanding healthcare services to patients and families in our community. Our goal is to give every patient the best care while conveying exemplary customer service.

Our hospital is locally managed but also part of a comprehensive network of HCA hospitals in the US and United Kingdom that is the nation’s leading provider of healthcare services. Our mission is to provide extraordinary care to every life we touch.

As a partner in our community, we are committed to the health and economic vitality of our region. In 2018, over 37,000 patients sought services in our Emergency department with over 53,000 total patients receiving care in our facility. We employ more than 720 highly educated professionals with a workforce payroll of over $47 million. Local, state and federal taxes paid consisted of almost $4.4 million.

At St. Pete General Hospital our basic premise is simple. We put Patients First. Our Patient-Centered Culture provides a welcoming environment for all races, ages, genders, nationalities, religions and sexual orientations. By striving to meet the needs of our patients, their families and our employees, we encompass all the aspects that are a necessary component of excellence in healthcare.

While we take care of a multitude of medical issues, we are also a destination surgical hospital, for both patients and physicians. We want you to feel confident in your choice of our hospital. For patients, we offer a concierge, dedicated pre/post operating room surgical wing where you can check in the night before an in-patient procedure and your loved one can stay with you. Women with gynecological surgical procedures stay on our Women’ Services unit upstairs, where women are our specialty. We offer easy pre-registration online and a web-based video to showcase our processes and procedures so you feel confident in our care. For physicians, our operating room team has been together many years, consistently ranks in the top quartile of operating room efficiencies for HCA West Florida hospitals and offers convenient Saturday robotic surgery scheduling in addition to emergent surgical procedures 24/7.

We work toward and continue to attain many accreditations and certifications. These include among others: Accredited Advanced Primary Stroke Center, Accredited Chest Pain Center, Certified Atrial Fibrillation Center, Accredited Community Cancer Center, LGBTQ Healthcare Equality Index Leader, and, for the 4th year in a row, the Women’s Choice Award for Best Emergency Care.

We continue to dedicate ourselves to making sure our care is the best it can be, for you. We appreciate you allowing us to care for you and your family and welcome your continued support of your community hospital.

Warm Regards,

Ken Wicker
