Sarasota Memorial Hospital - Venice Campus

Sarasota Campus Cancer Pavilion – OPENING 2025

When complete, the seven-story outpatient Cancer Pavilion will include a new breast health center, outpatient surgery suites, radiation oncology, infusion services, diagnostic imaging and integrative and supportive care. It also will be home to medical, surgical and radiation oncology physician clinics.

SMH-Venice has operated at full capacity since its first week, pointing to the pressing healthcare needs in south county communities. With higher than anticipated volumes from day one, SMH-Venice leaders have already begun work on a patient care tower that will add 68 more private patient suites by early 2024.

SMH-North Port will offer a comprehensive range of acute medical, surgical and specialty care, outpatient programs and diagnostic services, as well as space for educational and support programs. The facility will be hurricane hardened with a back-up energy center and seamless connection to the electronic medical records, clinical systems, and specialized support of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System.

The campus will include medical office buildings with primary and specialty physicians, including Sarasota Memorial’s growing First Physicians Group network. In a related move, SMH also is updating plans for a health care campus on property it owns in nearby Wellen Park and its existing North Port facility.
