Morton Plant Hospital

Clearwater, FL

Founded in 1916, Morton Plant Hospital was the first hospital built in northern Pinellas County. Known for advanced medical technologies, cutting-edge clinical research and outstanding patient care, Morton Plant Hospital is nationally recognized as a leader in the field. 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 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 fourth annual Light Up the Holidays event at Morton Plant Hospital went virtual this year on Thursday, December 8. Watch the video below 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 special message, see the lighting of the tree and scenes of holiday decorations throughout the hospital.
