By investing in GE HealthCare’s technologies, we’re not just focused on enhancing the patient experience, but also improving patient outcomes. Faster and more accurate diagnoses can help lead to better treatment plans and more lives saved,” said John Couris, president and CEO of Tampa General.

TGH Imaging provides advanced radiology services in a comfortable, convenient, outpatient setting at 21 locations throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and Palm Beach counties in Florida.

GE HealthCare’s imaging technologies will help enable TGH Imaging radiologists to do their best work with a focus toward providing faster and more accurate diagnosis and better treatment planning, and improved patient experience.

“Patients turn to Tampa General for world-class care, and that requires innovative technologies,” said Sherri Lewman, senior vice president, Enterprise Imaging at Tampa General Hospital. “Through our relationship with GE HealthCare, we are helping to ensure every patient – no matter how simple or complex their condition – has the best chance for the best possible outcome.”

Tampa General Hospital and GE HealthCare have a history of collaborating, including a strategic agreement dating back to 2019. The relationship has enabled successful implementations, such as CareComm command center with GE HealthCare’s Command Center Software and a capital refresh plan for imaging technology solutions throughout its facilities. In March 2023, TGH Imaging was the first in the state of Florida to install GE HealthCare’s Omni Legend digital PET/CT system.
