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 613-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.
