USF Tampa General Physicians names first SVP of Operations

TAMPA, FL (June 16, 2022) – The USF Tampa General Physicians (USFTGP) has named Matthew Cantonis as its senior vice president of operations.

Launched in January 2022, USFTGP supports the administrative functions of the clinical practices of both the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine and Tampa General Medical Group (TGMG). The creation of the organization follows nearly two years of transition planning since announcing the broadened affiliation in July 2020.

Cantonis, who is a seasoned operational leader with more than 20 years of experience that includes inpatient and outpatient, service lines, and population health, joins USFTGP from San Diego, CA, where he worked for Scripps Health since 2011, most recently as assistant vice president for Clinical Service Lines and Accountable Care for Scripps Health.

“I am thrilled to welcome Matt back to Tampa, and to have him join our outstanding USFTGP senior leadership team,” said Mark G. Moseley, MD, president of USFTGP and vice dean of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine. “His extensive operational experience will be a great fit for our new organization, and I am confident that he will help us achieve our goal of building a world-class physician practice infrastructure.”

“Raised in Tampa Bay, and after over a decade in San Diego with Scripps Health, I am honored to return to the region supporting USF Tampa General Physicians,” Cantonis said. “The organization is uniquely positioned to improve the quality, access and coordination of care within a community I love and make a meaningful difference in the lives of the patients it serves.”

Through coordinated services, USFTGP will help drive growth, improve quality, and increase access to world-class, academic medical care across the community, as well as serve as a recruiting tool for leading academic physicians from across the country. The new organization will further elevate the national reputation of both USF Health and TGH, which will help attract additional research dollars and support the economic engines of Tampa Bay’s health market.

USFTGP includes 1,400 team members who serve and support physicians employed by USF Health and TGMG, providing practice infrastructure, clinical management, and related operational and administrative support services. USFTGP also works with private practice physicians on staff at Tampa General to offer purchased services and management services through the new organization.
