Tampa General Hospital Breaks Ground on New Taneja Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Tower

Tampa General Hospital (TGH) reached a significant milestone this week as they broke ground on the new Taneja Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Tower. The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by TGH leadership, local community leaders, and members of the Taneja family, who have generously contributed $25 million towards the project.

The new tower, expected to open in 2027, will offer patients access to top-tier providers, cutting-edge research therapies, and state-of-the-art technologies. With 144 patient beds, 32 operating suites, and an expansive intensive care unit (ICU), the 565,000-square-foot tower will house TGH’s surgery, neuroscience, and transplant service lines.

John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General Hospital, expressed his gratitude for the Taneja family’s contribution, stating, “The Taneja family shares our vision that through innovation, we can transform health care and improve patient outcomes. The new Taneja Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Tower will be an intersection of academics, research, and clinical care that will elevate how we are able to treat patients with complex conditions.”

The Taneja family’s decision to support healthcare initiatives stems from a personal experience with a brain tumor diagnosis in their son Mandeep. Despite the tragic outcome, the family chose to pay it forward and invest in providing specialized care to those in need.

Frann Leppla, vice president and chief philanthropy officer of the TGH Foundation, praised the Taneja family’s generosity, stating, “By naming the new tower in their honor, we’re celebrating their passion for innovation, their impact on our community, and the exceptional care we offer at Tampa General.”

The Taneja Surgical, Neuroscience & Transplant Tower will not only enhance TGH’s ability to deliver world-class care but also serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration for patients in need of specialized treatment. The project represents a significant step forward in TGH’s mission to transform healthcare through innovation and technology.
