Community Care Safety Net

People who live in Sarasota know it’s a unique place, with beautiful beaches, a sophisticated arts community and a host of amenities supported by a large base of affluent and retired citizens.

It was the overwhelming support of those citizens that led to the construction of the county’s first modern hospital – then known as Sarasota Hospital – in 1925, and helped it grow from a modest 32-bed facility to the 806-bed regional medical system that stands today. The second largest public hospital in Florida, Sarasota Memorial offers the most comprehensive and advanced multi-specialty care in a four-county region.

With such support, however, comes responsibility. With a 9.2 percent poverty rate, Sarasota also is home to many people unable to enjoy Sarasota’s special features … except when it comes to medical services. Sarasota Memorial’s community outreach and community service initiatives break down the barriers that keep many people from accessing good health care – whether they are economic factors, lack of transportation or language, custom or cultural challenges.
