Receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be frightening, stressful and difficult emotionally. At Sarasota Memorial you’ll have access to the kinds of advanced technology, genetic testing, treatments and clinical trials generally found only at major medical centers. That, and the multi-disciplinary team of oncology experts who will care for you have helped earn the hospital recognition as one of America’s 50 best hospitals from U.S. News & World Report.
At Sarasota Memorial, we treat the whole person, not just the cancer. You’ll find our physicians’ sensitive and our nurses compassionate. And whether it’s providing psychological counseling to help you cope, assistance with finding support groups, or aid with locating the resources in your community you’ll need after treatment, you’ll find our team is there to help and support you and your family through every step of your recovery.
Find your specific type of cancer on our online health guide, Consumer Health Solution, and learn more about its symptoms, risk factors, prevention strategies and treatments.
