Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital announced they have recently purchased 114 acres off of I-75 and Overpass Road in Pasco County to build a new facility solely focused on specialized pediatric care. While plans are still in the works, the hospital is actively engaging with the community and area pediatricians to develop a plan for what types of services are the best fit for the site. As the #1 children’s hospital in Florida ranked by U.S. News & World Report, Johns Hopkins All Children’s recognized the increased need for expert pediatric services in this rapidly growing area.
“As a top pediatric health system in the Southeast, we continuously look for opportunities to make our services more accessible in order to provide high quality care for children across our region, including considering options for clinical locations,” said Justin Olsen, chief operating officer at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. “In the nearly 100 years since our hospital was founded, we continue to grow with our community. A key part of becoming the leading pediatric clinical and academic health system in the southeastern U.S. is taking care of children throughout the Tampa Bay region.”
Phase one of construction is expected to begin in Fall 2024, with the facility fully operational by 2028.
