Scheduled to open in early 2017, Tampa General Hospital’s four-story, 130,000-square-foot Brandon Healthplex at 10740 Palm River Road will provide a broad spectrum of health care.

The big building going up next to Top Golf is not another entertainment option.

Sorry, Dave & Buster's fans.

No, it's Tampa General Hospital's Brandon Healthplex. The four story, 130,000-square- foot complex is located at 10740 Palm River Road and is slated to open in early 2017.

The comprehensive ambulatory center is designed to be a convenient destination for patients to access a broad spectrum of quality health care services all under one roof.

It will house the hospital's first free-standing adult and pediatric emergency departments, a helipad, surgery center, diagnostic imaging, laboratory services and physician offices. It will provide easy access to outpatient ambulatory care.

This is really Tampa General's first major step into the new world of health care, which is bringing health care to you," TGH board of directors chairman John A. Brabson Jr. said earlier this year. "Our goal is to offer the same excellent care, but to do it in a more efficient way, and in a more convenient way for you."

Once it's open, patients will be able to come to the facility to treat a cold, rather than waiting and winding up at the TGH emergency department with pneumonia, Brabson said.

The center represents a trend in health care as providers look to bring services closer to customers' homes and reduce costs.

  1. All of Puerto Rico without power in Maria's brutal wake

    News

    SAN JUAN — Hurricane Maria's ferocious winds continued strafing Puerto Rico late Wednesday morning, shearing off roofs, cutting power to nearly the entire island and pushing rivers over their banks.

    Rescue vehicles from the Emergency Management Agency stand trapped under an awning during the impact of Hurricane Maria, after the storm  hit the eastern region of the island, in Humacao, Puerto Rico, Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Maria has lost its major hurricane status, after raking Puerto Rico. But forecasters say some strengthening is in the forecast and Maria could again become a major hurricane by Thursday. [Carlos Giusti | Associated Press]
