Flad and Gilbane to Build Laurel Road SMH Campus

SCOOP

BY SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY NOV 25, 2017

The Sarasota County Public Hospital Board selected Flad Architects and Gilbane Building Company to design and construct its new $225 million 65-acre hospital campus in Venice. The Hospital Board’s unanimous vote clears the way for SMH staff to begin working with the firms on pre-construction and design plans for the new hospital campus. SMH’s Laurel Road campus includes a 315,000-square foot, 90-bed acute care hospital with a 20-bed observation unit and 25-room Emergency Care Center. The new hospital will include surgical suites, an operating room for medically necessary C-sections; cardiac catheterization lab; endoscopy suite, respiratory services, chemotherapy services, rehabilitation services, radiology services, a laboratory, pharmacy, outpatient services and a medical office building. Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration granted preliminary approval of SMH’s CON application last year, but the project was delayed after surrounding hospitals challenged the state's decision. Once it obtains its CON, SMH estimates it will take about three years to build the campus. It expects to treat up to 5,000 patients and 850 obstetrical patients in its first year.
