St. Joseph's Hospital-North delivers smooth, efficient health care during an emergency, when you need it most. Our Emergency Room improves the hospital experience for patients in Tampa and its northern suburbs, providing technologically advanced medical services.

Experienced Emergency Teams

Our experienced team of physicians and nurses treats emergency conditions, provides advanced imaging services and offers surgical services here in the hospital if patients need further treatment. Our advanced catheterization lab provides advanced diagnostic and treatment care.

Our patient satisfaction scores are among the best in the nation, and we are committed to providing excellent service to our patients and their loved ones.

Some facts about the Emergency Room:

  • Each room is private with real doors—this blocks out the usual noise and hubbub of a busy ER and gives our patients the privacy and quiet they need.
  • All rooms are state-of-the-art—we use the most advanced electronic monitoring for all of our patients. Further, the entire hospital uses Electronic Medical Records (EMR), which means our clinicians can quickly obtain important information that our health care delivery is more efficient and timely.
  • Patients safety is critical—we use bar scanning for medicine delivery, so nurses scan a patient's wristband to ensure patient safety before giving any medication.

Pediatric Patients

We care for pediatric patients; but, if necessary, we can arrange for transfer to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. Our doctors often consult with pediatric specialists at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital before deciding how to treat our pediatric patients.

We are capable of managing any emergency. If necessary, we can arrange for expedited transport of patients to one of our sister hospitals with specialized expertise using our helicopter or ambulance service. We can also arrange for a transfer to our intensive care unit.
