Tampa Bay Medical Billing, Credentialing Services

Medwave is pleased to offer our medical billing and credentialing services to healthcare professionals in the City of Tampa Bay, FL and surrounding communities.

Tampa General Hospital is the highest-ranked hospital in the area in the U.S News & World Report’s 2020-2021 Best Hospitals and one of the top four hospitals in the state, with five specialties ranking among the best programs in the country. The hospital’s specialties include cardiac services, cancer care and integrative medicine. It’s also one of the nation’s busiest adult solid organ transplant centers and is the region’s first and largest teaching hospital, having been affiliated with the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine for nearly 50 years.

Tampa General is also the only Level I Trauma Center in west central Florida, providing treatment to adult and pediatric patients with critical injuries. It was the first hospital in the state to achieve national Level I Trauma Center verification from the American College of Surgeons.

BayCare Health System manages 14 hospitals and about 300 other outpatient facilities that serve the residents of Tampa Bay and surrounding communities. Member hospitals feature about 3,500 beds and offer a variety of specialty services ranging from orthopedics to cancer care to women’s services. BayCare has some 5,400 physicians on staff.

Lee Mofffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute is nationally ranked in three adult specialties and rated high performing in four adult specialties and two procedures and conditions. It’s both a cancer center and a teaching facility.

St. Joseph’s Hospital-Tampa is recognized in five adult procedures and conditions, St. Joseph’s is both a general medical and surgical facility as well as a teaching hospital.

Only one hospital in the area got a top rating in the federal government’s latest scorecard. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ranks hospitals based on mortality, safety of care, readmission timeliness of care and other such criteria. This year, the service evaluated over 4,500 hospitals nationwide and only Tampa’s AdventHealth Hospital Wesley Chapel got the top score.

Managing the overall administration and reimbursement for all these medical facilities and practitioners is definitely not an easy task. That’s why Medwave provides its expertise in medical billing and credentialing to wide range of healthcare professionals in the Tampa Bay, FL area.
