Tampa General Hospital Plans for a Men’s Health Center

Apr 16, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The plans were made possible through a $6.5 million contribution from the Chivukula family.

Tampa General Hospital (TGH) revealed plans for a new center focused on men’s health made possible with the contribution of Dr. Jagadamba and Krishna Chivukula to the TGH Foundation.

The Dr. Jagadamba and Krishna Chivukula Men’s Health Center, named in recognition of the couple’s $6.5 million donation, is a complement to the USF’s Pamela Muma Women’s Health Center, which opened in 2019 and is driven by a meaningful partnership between TGH and USF Health. The Dr. Jagadamba and Krishna Chivukula Men’s Health Center will provide seamless, coordinated, comprehensive primary and preventive care for male patients, just as the Muma Center focuses on women’s health.

Services will be available to members of the Chivukula Health Center and tailored to the needs of each individual patient, offering annual visits with providers, as well as priority access for urgent, acute, and chronic health care needs.

Tampa General is currently evaluating locations and developing plans for the new center. Construction on the Dr. Jagadamba and Krishna Chivukula Men’s Health Center is expected to begin in the next couple of months, with plans to open in 2025.

The $6.5 million contribution marks the first donation to TGH Foundation from the Chivukula family.
