Our Green Hospital

At St. Joseph's Hospital-North it is our goal to create a healthy environment for the community that we serve. Featuring an environmentally friendly building and a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, we are dedicated to setting a new standard of care in the Tampa Bay area.

First Green Acute Hospital in Florida

St. Joseph's Hospital-North is the first acute hospital in Florida to be LEED®-registered by the U.S. Green Building Council. Certified 'green', the eco-sustainable building is made of materials that support energy conservation and clean air with low chemical emissions and recycled content.

For patients and visitors, the spacious private suites, noise control, natural light and healing garden, offer a calm and peaceful environment to heal and reflect. The outside features an open landscape of green, surrounded by cabbage palm, live oak and saw palmetto trees, providing a natural habitat for wildlife and scenic natural views for patients.
