BayCare Selects Philip Minden as New St. Joseph's Hospital President
BayCare announced today that St. Joseph’s Hospital-South President Philip Minden has been promoted to president of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, effective immediately. Minden will continue to oversee the hospital in Riverview during the national search for his replacement.
With 19 years of leadership experience, Minden is well equipped to lead day to day operations and implement strategic initiatives for BayCare’s largest hospital and only trauma center. Under his leadership, SJHS earned national recognition for high quality care and rapid performance improvement. The hospital also expanded significantly, with construction of a new six story patient tower; 10 surgical suites; emergency department expansion from 30 to 55 beds including a new pediatric emergency department; and a new observation unit, neonatal intensive care unit and cardiac interventional radiology lab.
Phil has been part of BayCare since 2016 when the health system acquired Bartow Regional Hospital where he was serving as president and remained until taking the helm of SJHS in January 2019. He has led several hospitals in the Tampa Bay region since 2008 and he participates in many local foundations, chambers and committees. Phil serves as an active board member of the Hillsborough Community College Foundation, Bay Area Linen Company and Riverview Chamber of Commerce. He is passionate about educating our community regarding prevention and making connections through charity.
“I am proud to see Phil’s continued success within BayCare and look forward to the energy and expertise he is bringing to our team in Tampa,” said Kimberly Guy, co-chief operating officer of BayCare. “We’re very fortunate to have this level of talent already here in our health system.”
Minden is a native of Fort Smith, Arkansas and earned his Bachelor of Natural Science degree from Saint Gregory’s University in Shawnee, Oklahoma. He then completed his Master of Healthcare Administration at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center in Oklahoma City. Now a Dade City resident, Minden enjoys Florida living where he can golf, fish and cycle.
