Thank You SMH!

Coconut Telegraph

As Hurricane Irma rocked the Gulfcoast, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System remained open throughout the storm, making sure the needs of 500-plus patients plus those with special needs seeking shelter continued to be met during this difficult time. SMH "sheltered in place" and continued to care for patients 24/7 with designated teams of medical specialists, nurses and support staff staying in the hospital around-the-clock.  More than 2,500 Sarasota Memorial staff members left their homes to report to work to support the efforts. “Hurricane Irma prompted the largest mobilization of resources in the hospital’s 92-year history. The storm tested everyone in our community and brought some of the most challenging conditions to our hospital’s emergency operations and public safety teams,” SMH CEO, David Verinder stated.  A big thank you goes out to the entire Sarasota Memorial team for the great work they did during the storm, as well as the outstanding care they provide our community each and every day.

Give Gratitude, Grateful Patient Program

If you have been a patient at Sarasota Memorial, perhaps you can look back to when the care you received exceeded your expectations. Maybe it was kind words from a doctor or nurse, the patience of a technologist who took the time to explain a procedure, or a volunteer, housekeeper or food service
