Expanded Services at St. Joseph’s Hospital-North

Five-star customer care and an expanded menu of hospital services await patients of the new St. Joseph’s Hospital-North, which opened near the intersection of Dale Mabry Highway and Van Dyke Road in February 2010.

TAMPA, Fla. (October 6, 2011) – The full-service hospital, which began delivering babies this time last year, continues to offer additional health care services to meet the needs of the North Tampa community.  Even as it grows, the individual attention provided by compassionate team members sets St. Joseph’s Hospital-North apart from other local hospitals.

  • A state-of-the-art catheterization lab has the specialized staff to perform coronary catheterizations and interventional radiology procedures.  The opening of the cath lab has enabled the hospital to offer additional procedures including a cardiac catheterization procedure that utilizes the radial (wrist) artery.  Aside from heart-related procedures, the cath lab provides uterine fibroid patients with a minimally invasive option for treatment of tumors of the uterus. 
  • The new Sleep Disorders Center is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic sleep testing available. With a prescription, patients can participate in an overnight sleep study (polysomnogram) in a comfortable, private patient room, closely monitored by polysomnographic technologists.  A detailed sleep evaluation is compiled and sent to your doctor with a recommended treatment plan. 
  • Recently, the St. Joseph’s Hospital-North’s ambulatory surgery department received Avatar’s Five Star Loyalty & Endorsement Award.  The designation, based on patient satisfaction, recognizes St. Joseph’s Hospital-North for delivering a high quality patient experience. From the hotel-like décor to hospital meals delivered like room service, the accommodating and kind care team at St. Joseph’s Hospital-North strives to make each guest feel like they are at a five-star hotel, not about to undergo surgery.
