Morton Plant Hospital

Clearwater, FL

Founded in 1916, Morton Plant Hospital was the first hospital built in northern Pinellas County. Almost a century later, Morton Plant Hospital is a nationally recognized 613-bed facility providing highly technical and specialized care to more than 50,000 patients annually and working in more than 50 specialty areas. BayCare’s longstanding commitment to serving health care needs within our community continues with expansion efforts, a four-year project that will include a new patient tower, an additional main entrance and the relocations of surgery, women's care and orthopedics to better meet the needs of the future.
