By | Announcements

By Curtis Krueger, Senior Public Relations Editor

Tampa General Hospital is nationally ranked in five medical specialties and “high-performing” in five more.

TAMPA, FL (July 28, 2020) – Tampa General Hospital has once again been recognized as the number one hospital in the Tampa/St. Petersburg metro area for 2020-21 by U.S. News & World Report.

This is the fifth year in a row that Tampa General has been named by U.S. News & World Report as Tampa Bay’s top hospital. Tampa General also has been ranked as one of the nation’s top 50 hospitals in five medical specialties and is listed among the top five hospitals in Florida, according to the magazine.

The annual Best Hospitals rankings and ratings, now in their 31st year, are designed to assist patients and their doctors in making informed decisions about where to receive care for challenging health conditions or for common elective procedures.

Tampa General is ranked as one of the nation’s 50 top hospitals in these five medical specialties:

  1. Cardiology & Heart Surgery
  2. Diabetes & Endocrinology
  3. Gastroenterology & GI Surgery
  4. Nephrology
  5. Orthopedics

In addition, TGH was also rated as “high performing” in Cancer, Geriatrics, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Pulmonology & Lung Surgery and Urology.

“We are proud to have received this recognition, which is a true testament to the hard work and high-quality performance of our team members and physicians,” said TGH President and CEO John Couris. “Quality is paramount at TGH, and we will not stop in our pursuit of excellence as we work toward becoming the safest and most innovative academic medical center in the country.”

“Tampa General continues to lead the way in quality and innovation among hospitals across Florida and the Tampa Bay region,” said John Touchton, TGH Board Chair. “The highly-skilled team of care givers are among the best in the country in many different specialties. Knowing that TGH is among the best in the country and state, and the top hospital in the Tampa Bay region, should provide great comfort to our community members when they find themselves or their loved ones in need of such high-caliber care.”

For the 2020-21 rankings and ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 26 specialties, procedures and conditions. In the 16 specialty areas, 134 hospitals were ranked in at least one specialty. In rankings by state and metro area, U.S. News recognized best regional hospitals based on high performing rankings across multiple areas of care. “For more than 30 years, U.S. News & World Report has been helping patients, along with the help of their physicians, identify the Best Hospitals in an array of specialties, procedures and conditions,” said Ben Harder, managing editor and chief of health analysis at U.S. News. “The hospitals that rise to the top of our rankings and ratings have deep medical expertise, and each has built a track record of delivering good outcomes for patients.”

The U.S. News Best Hospitals methodologies in most areas of care are based largely on objective measures such as risk-adjusted survival and discharge-to-home rates, volume, and quality of nursing, among other care-related indicators.

Best Hospitals was produced by U.S. News with RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C.

Physical Therapy Telemedicine

Physical Therapy Telemedicine Offered at Florida Orthopaedic Institute

By | Announcements

Seeking to implement new methods of care for patients during the developing COVID-19 situation, Florida Orthopaedic Institute has found a resolution through telemedicine. Offering the service for both clinical appointments and physical therapy, the orthopedic practice can now virtually treat and rehabilitate patients while they remain in the comfort of their homes.

“Telemedicine is extremely simple to set up,” said Paul Lopes, Director of Physical Therapy at Florida Orthopaedic Institute. “The patient receives an email and clicks a secure link which places them in direct audio and video connection with their Therapist. That’s it!”

Allowing patients to virtually meet with their physician or therapist and not having to come into the office, telemedicine greatly reduces the risk of potentially coming into contact with the coronavirus.

“Telemedicine is a great opportunity for patients to receive skilled Physical Therapy guidance when unable to take part in a more traditional, face-to-face experience,” said Jason Schoonover DPT, ATC at FOI Brandon.

Ensuring that quality of patient care remains at the highest of standards, telemedicine continues to develop the patient-physician relationship.

“They really like it. This is a very valuable service to our patients,” said Gavin Hawken, MPT, Therapy Supervisor at FOI Citrus Park.

Patients must see an FOI physician for an evaluation before being referred to Physical Therapy. To schedule an appointment with an FOI physician, please call our Scheduling Department at 813-978-9797.

Florida Surgeons Seek to Spark Change in the Healthcare Industry

By | Announcements, Our Physicians

Dr. Mark Frankle, M.D. and Dr. Steven Lyons, M.D. Discuss Healthcare Legislature before Congress on Capitol Hill

Tampa, FL – Jul. 11, 2019 – During the 2019 American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference (NOLC), orthopedic surgeons from across the country arrived on Capitol Hill to motivate Congress to support the Hospital Competition Act of 2019 (H.R. 506) and the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2019 (H.R. 1418, S.35).

Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Dr. Mark Frankle, M.D. and Dr. Steven Lyons, M.D. were two of over 300 surgeons that met with congressional representatives last month to voice their support of the legislative bills that are slated to improve the overall care of their patients. The two were met by fellow Floridian, Val Demings, a United States Representative from Florida’s 10th congressional district, who talked with them at length about solving the problems currently within the healthcare system.

The Hospital Competition Act of 2019 seeks to increase the amount of choice and access patients have to healthcare by lifting the restrictions on physician-owned hospitals, discouraging the merging of hospitals and increasing price transparency among others.

The Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2019 aims to provide more transparency and oversight into the healthcare industry by ensuring that federal antitrust laws also apply to the health insurance business.

Also supported on Capitol Hill was the Protecting People from Surprise Medical Bills Act. This bill seeks to provide patients with a means to overcome ‘surprise’ medical bills. Unexpected billing not only impacts cost on the patient’s end, but also affects the relationship between the patient and the physician.

Orthopaedic surgeons from across the country, including your physicians at Florida Orthopaedic Institute seek to ensure the greatest of outcomes for their patients. In supporting these bills, the satisfaction rate among patients only has potential to increase.

Amputees

Amputees Information – The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI

By | Announcements

Florida Orthopaedic Institute announces a dedicated clinic for patients with upper and lower amputation, providing information for amputees – The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI.

The Clinic is ideal and best suited for patients experiencing pain due to neuroma or phantom limb pain, unable to wear a prosthetic, unable to function and other amputee concerns.  

Individuals with amputations face many daily challenges that can significantly affect their lives, including general health, wellness, mobility, independence and more. The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI helps amputees by offering patients a multidisciplinary approach to the latest surgical innovations and technology to help them restore maximum limb performance and live life to the fullest.

The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI is led by surgeon Dr. Jason Nydick, a Florida native who was born and raised in Sarasota. After receiving his upper extremity fellowship with Florida Orthopaedic Institute, he dedicated his years from 2011-2014 to serving in the United States Navy at Pensacola Naval Hospital, including deployment to Kandahar Multinational Role 3 Combat Hospital in Afghanistan.

Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI includes several healthcare providers attending each monthly clinic. New reconstructive procedures and technology are available for patients with upper and lower amputations. Cutting-edge techniques and surgeries include targeted muscle reinnervation.

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) brings amputees relief and helps them get back to their daily lives. TMR was initially developed to work with new technology in bio-prosthetic limbs, but surgeons noticed that amputees who had TMR surgery also reported a significant reduction in both neuroma and phantom limb pain.

The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI coordinates with local and regional prosthetists and utilizes the most advanced myoelectric prostheses available. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, pain management specialists, and psychologists are available to the patient as needed for a comprehensive patient solution.

During the Clinic, patients will receive an initial evaluation by Dr. Nydick to determine if they are a candidate for the procedures and then be able to meet with both a therapist and a prosthetist, all in one appointment. Every medical professional involved in the clinic has been carefully selected for their experience and expertise in working with this patient population. Through a strong partnership with local medical professionals dedicated in achieving a common goal of improving the lives of post-amputee patients, this Clinic offers a truly innovative approach to the Tampa Bay community and its surrounding areas.

The Clinic occurs on the first Tuesday of each month at the main FOI campus, 13020 Telecom Pkwy N., Temple Terrace, FL 33637 FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL ERICA NIEVES AT 813-978-9700, EXTENSION 6265
