Synergy Health moves regional headquarters to downtown Tampa

British firm Synergy Health is moving its corporate headquarters for the Americas region from north Tampa to the SunTrust building in downtown Tampa, economic development leaders said Wednesday.

Synergy will move 100 existing employees at its current 12425 Race Track Road offices and create about 40 new jobs in the phased relocation over the next 12 months.

"This move to downtown Tampa is part of our plan to become more involved in the Tampa Bay community," Dr. Richard Steeves, group CEO and founder of Synergy Health, said in a statement. "The new location also makes business easier and more convenient for our international colleagues, with increased proximity to Tampa International Airport."

Moving downtown will also help the company become more active in promoting innovation in the life sciences industry, including the MediFuture initiative launched by the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corp. (EDC) earlier this year. The goal behind MediFuture is pursuing transformative or "disruptive" innovation in health care to help turn complex processes into something affordable and accessible — and create jobs at the same time.

"Synergy Health will play a key role in our efforts to position Tampa Bay as the epicenter of disruptive innovation in health care," said David Pizzo, chairman of the EDC and head of the West Florida region for Florida Blue.

No financial incentives were involved in the company's decision to relocate.

Synergy Health provides sterilization services to hospitals in Europe, Asia and across America. Last year, the company bought Tampa-based SRI/Surgical Express and in April announced plans to move its Americas headquarters from San Diego to the Tampa Bay area.

Real estate firm Cassidy Turley of Tampa is marketing the existing Synergy Health facility, which was formerly occupied by SRI/Surgical.
