Sarasota Memorial Hospital was one of only 48 hospitals nationwide to earn the top “high performing” ratings in all inpatient procedures and conditions evaluated in U.S. News' 2017-18 “Best Hospitals” report. The annual study focuses on care provided to Medicare patients because they often have more complicated conditions upon admission and more advanced illnesses than those of younger patients. This year’s ratings again earned SMH a spot on the “Best Hospitals” list for South Florida. The health system was also recognized among the nation’s top 10% highest performers in the adult specialty Gastroenterology and GI Surgery. Barely 1 percent of the 4,500 hospitals evaluated got the top rating across the board. Sarasota Memorial CEO David Verinder attributes the hospital’s consistently high rankings over the years to the diligence and dedication of its physicians, staff and volunteers, as well as the support and governance of the publicly elected Sarasota County Public Hospital Board.
