Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice campus project, located in Venice, Florida, is now complete. Gilbane Building Company provided preconstruction and construction management at-risk services for the new building, bringing 5-star care conveniently closer to area residents. Flad & Associates, Inc. served as the architect.
The new facility features 110 private patient rooms, with 10 spacious labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum birthing suites. The five-story, 365,000-square-foot facility also includes a 28-bed emergency care center with a stroke hub and two resuscitation rooms; eight surgical suites (including robotics and two surgical suites dedicated for OB patients); 22-bed intensive care unit (with a negative-pressure ventilation system that can convert all or a portion of the critical care pods into pandemic units if needed); an interventional radiology suite; cardiac catheterization/electrophysiology labs; endoscopy/bronchoscopy procedural suites; full array of diagnostics and imaging services; breast health center; dedicated cardiac care unit with 24/7 telemetry monitoring, as well as specially equipped units and services for orthopedic, oncology, nephrology, neurology/neurosurgery, pulmonary, urology, general/vascular surgery and other medical/surgical patients.
The 65-acre campus also incorporates a 400-car parking deck, surface parking for approximately 1,050 vehicles, a 25,000-square-foot energy plant and a 60,000-squaere-foot medical office building. The campus is designed to be flexible and expandable, and work is already underway on a third patient care tower that will add 68 private patient suites. The design will allow Sarasota Memorial to double the size of its emergency care center and surgical suites and expand up to 400 private patient rooms without disrupting hospital operations in future phases.
