Sarasota Memorial Health Care System in Sarasota, Florida, is expanding its cancer care center of excellence by building an outpatient care pavilion to deliver convenient, high-quality cancer care to the community and south Florida region.
Ground was recently broken for a 200,000-square-foot, 7-story pavilion. It will link to the existing in-patient oncology tower with a pedestrian bridge and form a new gateway to the northern part of the main healthcare campus, updating its identity and brand. The project includes a 700-car parking deck and a central utility plant.
The pavilion will house medical, radiation and surgical oncologists, radiation oncology and infusion services, a conference center, outpatient surgical floor, and imaging department with linear accelerators, MRI and CT. Outside will be a lushly landscaped ceremonial garden for patients and their families to celebrate completion of treatment. The project is particularly complex due to its staging on a tight urban site and the need to keep services operational during phasing.
The pavilion has an anticipated opening in 2025. The project team includes EYP and Turner Construction/J2 Solutions.
