Collaboration with St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital


The SDDA is working with St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital on a new study involving pediatric injury in Tampa. St. Joseph’s, a part of the BayCare Health System, is currently certified as a Level II and Pediatric Trauma Center.  Lead by Drs. Sandra Brooks and Tara Loux (St. Joseph’s) as well as Drs. Henian Chen and Kevin Kip (COPH), this study will determine if there are demographic and/or geographic patterns to trauma/injury in the pediatric population served by St. Joseph’s Hospital.
