Community Outreach and Collaboration
As one of Florida's largest metropolitan areas, the Tampa Bay region affords faculty at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital the opportunity to work collaboratively with other medical and educational institutions in the region. We share our pediatric expertise with numerous healthcare partners through affiliations in education, research and provision of clinical care.
Regional Neonatology Services
All Children's Specialty Physicians are medical staff members and provide pediatric care at nine community hospitals within the extended Tampa Bay region.
- Bayfront Health – St. Petersburg/Bayfront Baby Place
- Bayfront Health – Spring Hill
- Bayfront Health – Port Charlotte
- Brandon Regional Hospital
- Florida Hospital – North Pinellas
- Florida Hospital – Tampa
- Medical Center of Trinity
- Sarasota Memorial Hospital
- St. Petersburg General Hospital
When needing our neonatal care, our neonatologists attend high-risk deliveries and also provide consultation for newborns with problems at the request of the pediatricians. When an infant requires more extensive Level III NICU care, the attending neonatologist arranges critical care transport to the 97-bed NICU at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital. The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Neonatal & Pediatric Transport Team has state-of-the-art ambulances that function as "ICUs on wheels" to provide critical support for these patients during transport.
Bayfront Health St. Petersburg
This community hospital is adjacent to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, and the two institutions work collaboratively in caring for newborns, expectant mothers with high-risk pregnancies, critical care transport, and trauma. Johns Hopkins All Children's third floor is leased and operated by Bayfront Baby Place, which includes a labor and delivery unit, well baby nursery and antepartum unit for women with high-risk pregnancies. Johns Hopkins All Children's employs obstetricians and maternal-fetal medicine specialists who admit high-risk patients to the antepartum unit at Bayfront, and pediatric subspecialists from Johns Hopkins All Children's often meet with these expectant parents to discuss the medical and surgical care their infant will need following delivery. Infants requiring NICU care are immediately transferred to the 97-bed NICU on the sixth floor of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. Johns Hopkins All Children's and Bayfront jointly operate a state-approved pediatric trauma program and residency. This Level 2 trauma center brings patients to both institutions via helicopter, fixed wing aircraft and neonatal/pediatric transport ambulances. Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital is one of four pediatric trauma centers in the state of Florida.
IMG Academy, a leader in education, training and professional development for young athletes, is working with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to keep students healthy. Providing sports medicine and general health services on site at IMG Academy, students and parents can feel confident in the care provided by a 2016 U.S. News & World Report Best Children’s Hospital.
Johns Hopkins Children's Heart Surgery Program
Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery
The Johns Hopkins Children's Heart Surgery program was established in 2012 to benefit children with congenital heart disease through shared clinical excellence and collaborative research at three centers:
- Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital, St. Petersburg
- Florida Hospital for Children, Orlando
- The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore
This world-class program unites the strengths of pediatric cardiovascular surgeons at all three locations. The surgeons working together provide new opportunities for excellence in clinical care as well as collaborative research in cardiac surgery in order to develop innovative approaches in treating congenital heart disease.
Moffitt Cancer Center
Florida's only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital is the sole pediatric affiliate of Moffitt Cancer Center and collaboration between clinicians and scientists at the two institutions is especially strong in the areas of sarcoma (diagnosis, treatment and research), autologous and allogeneic bone marrow and hematopoietic stem cell transplant, and development of vaccines targeted to specific pediatric tumors. The two institutions share FACT (Federation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapies) accreditation for their bone marrow and hematopoietic stem cell transplant programs, working closely together on treatment and research. The cellular transplant programs at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital and Moffitt are, respectively, the largest pediatric and adult programs in Florida.
Johns Hopkins All Children’s has been an educational affiliate of the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine for 40 years, training pediatric residents, offering medical student clerkships and electives, and providing pediatric experience for residents and fellows in adult surgical specialties. This collaboration also extends to USF clinical programs in immunology, allergy, HIV and nephrology at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. The 48,000 square foot ACH USF Children’s Research Institute adjoins the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital campus and is home to USF researchers who focus on molecular genetics and adaptive immunity, HIV and primary immunodeficiency disease. The building is also home to the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Clinical and Translational Research Organization. This location facilitates sharing of research infrastructure, including high throughput sequencing. The Rothman Center for Neuropsychiatry, a USF program located on the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital campus, has clinical and research programs focused on pediatric obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette syndrome and tic disorders. Rothman Center staff work collaboratively with the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Autism Center, pediatric psychiatry program, and specialists in speech, language and communication disorders and Applied Behavior Analysis.
