One of the concerns people have when moving to a new area is medical care.
There are several good hospitals in or close to downtown St Petersburg. One of them right in downtown St Petersburg is Bayfront Medical Center. Over 600 doctors serve Bayfront. It's a full service hospital, starting with a very active Emergency/Trauma center. Bayfront has continued to expand, and actually turned itself around - the front entrance moved from the east side to the west side! From obstetrics to cancer care to neurology and sports medicine, you can find help at Bayfront.
Often the trauma helicopters that you see flying from an accident scene are en route to Bayfront, where a trauma team meets the helicopter on the roof. Many of the ambulance sirens wind up at Bayfront, too.
Here's a downloadable guide to Bayfront Medical Center's services and programs.
