New BayCare Hospital in Manatee County Marks Expansion of Nonprofit Healthcare Provider in West Central Florida.

BayCare Announces Plans for First Hospital in Manatee County

In an announcement that is set to change the healthcare landscape of West Central Florida, BayCare Health System has revealed plans for the construction of a new $548 million hospital in Manatee County. This 154-bed facility will be located on Moccasin Wallow Road, providing easy access to residents in southern Pinellas County.

The hospital, named BayCare Hospital Manatee, will offer a wide range of services including emergency care, orthopedic and specialty surgery, urology, gastroenterology, cardiology, obstetrics, and neonatology. Additionally, the hospital will house a 45,000-square-foot building for outpatient services and physician offices.

Construction is set to begin in October with the goal of providing high-quality and compassionate care to the community. BayCare Hospital Manatee will be the nonprofit’s 17th hospital, marking its commitment to meeting the healthcare needs of growing communities in West Central Florida.

This new hospital will be the first in Manatee County to be built north of the Manatee River, marking a significant milestone for the area. While other hospitals in the county are owned by for-profit organizations such as Universal Health Services and HCA Health Care, BayCare Hospital Manatee will be the first nonprofit-owned hospital in the area. BayCare’s expansion into Manatee County reflects its dedication to serving the evolving healthcare needs of the Tampa Bay region.
