Find a Primary Care Doctor
A primary care doctor can be the first step toward diagnosis and treatment. We’ll help you get started.
Founded in 1916, Morton Plant Hospital was the first hospital built in northern Pinellas County. In 2019, Morton Plant Hospital continues to be a leader in its field, having been nationally recognized by IBM Watson Health as one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the country for the 7th time. The 599-bed facility provides highly technical and specialized care to more than 50,000 patients annually and works in more than 50 specialty areas. With the recent opening of the Doyle Tower, Morton Plant Hospital continues its transformation to meet the future health care needs of the community. The tower offers an additional main entrance to the hospital and a new surgical center, and the women’s services and orthopedics units feature large private rooms. All are designed to be more efficient and to improve patient, visitor and physician experience.
The second annual Light Up the Holidays event at Morton Plant Hospital will go virtual this year at 6pm on Thursday, December 3. Join us for the lighting of the tree on the front of the hospital at the West Entrance, including the countdown to the plugging in of the lights. Always a spectacular sight, the tree can be seen shining brightly from the beach and surrounding neighborhoods.
Team members and the community are invited to tune in to hear a message from Lou Galdieri, president of Morton Plant and senior vice president/market leader of North Pinellas and West Pasco, and to see the lighting of the tree and scenes of holiday decorations throughout the hospital.
The video will remain live throughout the holiday season.
BayCare announced visitation hours will expand to 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily starting Wednesday, Oct. 21 in advance of the time change on Nov. 1, so visitors who wish to travel home before dark will still have extended time to visit.
Our Morton Plant Hospital Gift Shop volunteers are always ready with the perfect gift to suit all your gift giving needs.
Located on the first floor of the hospital, the cafeteria is open daily from 6am to 3am. Vending machines are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Your spiritual and emotional well-being are important to us. Chaplains are available to visit, talk and/or pray with you. The Chapel, located off the main entrance lobby, is a place where people of all faiths can come for quiet reflection and personal prayer. Chaplains can be reached through the hospital operator or by calling (727) 462-3286.
