Morton Plant Hospital

Clearwater, FL

Founded in 1916, Morton Plant Hospital was the first hospital built in northern Pinellas County. In 2019, Morton Plant Hospital continues to be a leader in its field, having been nationally recognized by IBM Watson Health as one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the country for the 7th time. The 599-bed facility provides highly technical and specialized care to more than 50,000 patients annually and works in more than 50 specialty areas. With the recent opening of the Doyle Tower, Morton Plant Hospital continues its transformation to meet the future health care needs of the community.  The tower offers an additional main entrance to the hospital and a new surgical center, and the women’s services and orthopedics units feature large private rooms. All are designed to be more efficient and to improve patient, visitor and physician experience.

Morton Plant’s Light Up the Holidays Going Virtual

The second annual Light Up the Holidays event at Morton Plant Hospital will go virtual this year at 6pm on Thursday, December 3. Join us for the lighting of the tree on the front of the hospital at the West Entrance, including the countdown to the plugging in of the lights. Always a spectacular sight, the tree can be seen shining brightly from the beach and surrounding neighborhoods.

Team members and the community are invited to tune in to hear a message from Lou Galdieri, president of Morton Plant and senior vice president/market leader of North Pinellas and West Pasco, and to see the lighting of the tree and scenes of holiday decorations throughout the hospital. 

The video will remain live throughout the holiday season.
