On December 7th, over 700 of the most fashionable guests attended the 30th Annual Georgette’s Holiday Fashion Show benefiting St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital. The record-breaking event, led by Chairs Brenda Sproat and Priscilla Castellano, netted over $200,000 for a new Breast Ultrasound that will allow us to help thousands of women in the Tampa Bay area receive the care with the best diagnostic tools available. Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Avery Construction, and all the sponsors, underwriters, dancers, models, guests and supporters who helped make the event a huge success! A special thank you to Georgette’s Boutique for your support and passion for helping St. Joseph’s Hospitals community.

Bettina Carroccetto loved the beach, she loved good music, and she especially loved being a Pediatric Emergency Nurse at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. That was until a tragic car accident took her life eight years ago at just 29 years old.
Through unimaginable grief, her family recognized that Bettina’s passion for helping others must continue. Thus, The Bettina Carroccetto Memorial Fund for Nursing Excellence was established. This fund was created to provide scholarships to St. Joseph’s Hospitals aspiring nurses, and later to fund equipment that assists the nursing team in serving the critical population of the pediatric emergency department. Recently, Bettina’s brother, Alfio, hosted a fundraiser in which proceeds allowed the foundation to purchase a vein viewer for our Steinbrenner Children’s Emergency and Trauma Center. This device helps our team find optimal vein insertion sites, even for our smallest patients.
Thank you to the Carroccetto family for continuing Bettina’s legendary passion for her patients and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital.

On September 21st, St. Joseph’s Hospital hosted over 30 business and community leaders from all across Tampa Bay for the annual Tampa in Scrubs event. This exclusive event is designed to give guests an opportunity to make rounds with our highly skilled and experienced physicians and medical professionals. Attendees learned about two of St. Joseph’s Hospital’s Centers of Excellence, the Heart and Cancer Institutes, and experienced a behind the scenes look at operations in our Emergency Rooms and Robotics Program. If you would like to participate in this spectacular event next year, contact us for more information.
St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital cares for a variety of children with different surgical needs. Those that require orthopedic intervention to help heal conditions such as developmental hip dysplasia or a broken leg require a SPICA cast for roughly 8-12 weeks. This large cast extends from the mid-chest to the ankle with a bar between the legs to help reinforce the cast and prevent breakage. Due to the cumbersome nature of the cast, a wheelchair will not typically accommodate the cast.
To relieve the strain of transporting a toddler from room to room, doctors’ appointments and daily activities, the Little Red Wagon Fund was created. With funds raised, the hospital has been able to provide families with financial constraints the ability to take care of their injured child in the best way possible.
