One of the largest public health systems in Florida, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System has continually evolved from its modest beginning as the county's first community hospital. Our mission to deliver high-quality healthcare for our community has been steadfast since we first began serving patients in 1925 at the 32-bed Sarasota Hospital, and our growth has been shaped by and for the Sarasota community.
Today, we are a full-service public health system, with two hospitals offering specialized expertise in heart, vascular, cancer, orthopedic and neuroscience services, as well as a state-of-the-art cancer care center and a network of outpatient centers, urgent care centers, laboratories, diagnostic imaging and physician practices, skilled nursing and rehabilitation among our many programs.
Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Sarasota Campus, with our flagship 901-bed, acute-care hospital and 8-story Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute Oncology Tower, is the only hospital in Sarasota County providing obstetrical services, pediatrics, Level III neonatal intensive care, psychiatric services for patients of all ages and a Level II Trauma Center.
Sarasota Memorial is powered by more t...han 8,500 staff, making us Sarasota County’s largest employer. Over 750 members of the community contribute their time and skills as hospital volunteers; this includes the 9-member elected and unpaid Sarasota County Public Hospital Board that governs Sarasota Memorial Health Care System.
Sarasota Memorial strives to provide healthcare services that excel in caring, quality and innovation.
Our community will be served by the best healthcare system in the nation. Sarasota Memorial will be the best place to be a patient, the best place to work and the best place to practice medicine. Our extraordinary people, innovative clinical technology and effective use of information systems will set us apart. We will deliver services that are safe, result in desired outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge.
