SMH-Venice Physician Newsletter – January 2024

Message from Dr. Scott Perrin SMH-Venice Chief of Staff

Scott Perrin, MD - Chief of Staff"2024 is off to a tremendous start here at SMH Venice. We have so much to look forward to regarding the upcoming completion of the new patient tower in the spring as well as the expansion of the ER in the late fall of 2024. These significant capital improvements will vastly expand our ability to care for the sickest patients in south Sarasota County. As with any growth phase, there is always some pain felt especially in our current resource constraints as we enter into likely the busiest time of our year. Please feel free to reach out to me and the medical staff office if you identify any ways, we can better serve our patients during this busy time."
