According to a news release, Minden will continue to oversee St. Joseph’s Hospital South, which is in Riverview, during a national search for his successor. St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa is Clearwater-based BayCare’s largest hospital and only trauma center, and it recently celebrated the opening of an expansion that includes a new six-story patient tower; 10 surgical suites; emergency department expansion from 30 to 55 beds, including a new pediatric emergency department; and a new observation unit, neonatal intensive care unit and cardiac interventional radiology lab.

Minden, the release states, joined BayCare in 2016 when the health care system acquired Bartow Regional Hospital, where he served as president. He was named president of St. Joseph’s Hospital South in January 2019.

"I am proud to see Phil's continued success within BayCare and look forward to the energy and expertise he is bringing to our team in Tampa," states Kimberly Guy, co-chief operating officer of BayCare, in the release. "We're very fortunate to have this level of talent already here in our health system."
