The Carol and Frank Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare combines world-class health care with a state-of-the-art building designed to facilitate learning in health teams. In 2008, Ajax completed the new 6-story, 194,000 SF patient care medical facility.The building is named for Frank and Carol Morsani for their longtime support of USF. It is located on the northeast corner of West Holly and Magnolia, the primary gateway to the USF Health quadrant of the USF Tampa Campus. The building was part of a Health Care and Education Center project which included a 5-year phased plan for the construction of several new facilities that provided a link between the College of Medicine, College of Nursing and the College of Public Health for students and staff involved in these programs.

The facility houses the following major components: Diagnostic imaging (fully digital) MRI, CT, women’s diagnostics with mammography, ultrasound and and bone densitometry, fluoroscopy, basic X-ray and nuclear medicine, an Ambulatory surgery/procedure center which includes 8 operating rooms and 5 endoscopy suites, Outpatient facilities that include 60 clinic exam rooms, Patient support areas and patient administrative services, Clinical and translational research, Patient Outreach and Education Center and a Sweetbay Pharmacy conveniently located on the 1st floor.

The largest concrete pour in Ajax history took place November 17, 2006 at the USF Morsani Center jobsite. The pour lasted for 13 hours and involved 400 tons of rebar steel and 65 concrete trucks, equaling approximately 5,000 cubic yards of concrete. This Mat Foundation is 34,000 sq. feet and roughly 5 feet deep.
