When Florida Hospital-Tampa embarked on a $53.7-million project to add a larger 91,000-sq-ft emergency department, the hospital hired Robins & Morton, which had recently delivered another nearby facility for the owner. This time, the owner wanted to relocate the ED to the front of the Tampa hospital’s campus in order to increase patient accessibility. For this project, the contractor had to deal with a hodgepodge of expansions and renovations that made up the 45-year-old hospital as it endeavored to build the new ED between the existing hospital, the Women’s Health Pavilion and the Pepin Heart Institute. Hospital staff turnover resulted in late changes, the largest being the addition of a three-story, 50,000-sq-ft ICU tower over the ED that had to be tied into the existing ICU tower.
