Hospital Tours

Hospital Tours

Hospital tours are scheduled through the Communications and Public Relations department. The length of the tour depends upon the age and interest of the group. Children’s tours (Kindergarten through 5th grade) take approximately 45 minutes, while adult tours can take up to 2 hours. Tour groups should not exceed 15 adults or 25 children. Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.

Adult Tours
Groups requesting tours will have the opportunity to choose from three established adult tours (middle and high school students are welcome).

• Rehab (Cardiac Rehab, Comprehensive Rehab, Transitional Care, Pulmonary & Hyperbaric)
• Technical (Lab, Center for Advanced Surgery)
• Career Ladder (Food & Nutrition, Environmental Services, Central Sterile, Lab, Phlebotomy)

Pediatric/Adolescent tours
Sarasota Memorial’s Infection Control guidelines prohibit tours of the hospital’s Pediatric Unit and certain other areas of the hospital. The following options are available for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade, as well as to groups of fourth and fifth graders:

• My Hospital Adventure, for children in Kindergarten through third grade students (up to 25 children with one teacher and 4 adults). The group meets in a hospital conference room for approximately 45 minutes. A Pediatric staff member will show the "My Hospital Adventure" video, provide a simple demonstration (i.e. finger tip blood pressures, listening to heart with stethoscope, Zack and Zelda dolls, etc.) and answer questions.
• Fourth and fifth grade student groups (up to 25 children with one teacher and 4 adults) can request one of the following 45 minute programs:

    a. Age appropriate classroom presentation by Pediatric staff member
    ("My Hospital Adventure" is targeted to a younger age group.)
    b. Food & Nutrition tour
    c. Laboratory tour
