Because we will make your life better. With USF Health, you have nearly 900 highly specialized health care professionals behind you, fighting for your health. As part of an academic medical center, we can give you the most current medicine, treatment and cure available, an advantage few other physician groups can offer. How big of a difference is that? Let us show you.
What separates USF Health from other multi-specialty practices in the Tampa Bay area is that it is part of an academic medical center, a connection that benefits both patients and the community it serves.
National studies show that patients tend to fare better at academic medical centers, which typically treat some of the sickest patients and toughest medical cases. In addition, patients have access to the newest treatments that are provided by clinics and hospitals linked to a college of medicine. And the communities served by an academic medical center feel a huge economic impact due to a center’s hiring, buying and building power.
The value of having USF Health, the region's only academic medical center, to the well-being of the Tampa Bay community is huge.
