Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice Campus

2600 Laurel Road E., North Venice, FL 34275

Coming Soon: Opening November 2021!

Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice is on track to welcome its first patients this November! A full-service, acute care hospital, SMH-Venice was built to serve the growing south Sarasota County area and enhance healthcare across the region. 

When it opens, SMH-Venice will offer a full slate of medical and surgical care — from cardiology, orthopedics and intensive care to surgery and comprehensive labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum care. 

Seamlessly integrated with the resources, expertise and support of Sarasota Memorial Health Care System, SMH-Venice will deliver south county residents more convenient access to the top-ranked acute care and surgical treatment Sarasota Memorial is known for.

SMH-Venice Clinical Services & Facilities

Networked information technology connects SMH-Venice and other Sarasota Memorial care centers, ensuring patients can receive an uninterrupted continuity of care across our locations.

The slate of healthcare services at SMH-Venice will include:

Emergency Care (ER) — With 28 beds, 2 trauma/resuscitation rooms, X-ray and a stroke care hub, the SMH-Venice ER will be open 24/7 to treat and diagnose injury, stroke, cardiac events, allergic reactions and other emergent conditions. 

Radiology — The SMH-Venice Radiology Department will offer inpatient and outpatient imaging, including MRI, CT scans, fluoroscopy and X-rays. It also will feature 2 nuclear medicine suites, stress testing and a bi-plane interventional radiology suite. Our Venice Breast Care Center will be equipped with ultrasound and bone density testing, 3D mammography and a stereotactic biopsy suite.

Maternity Services — The SMH-Venice Labor / Delivery / Recovery / Post-Partum Unit (LDRP) supports women and babies at every step of their journey. All 10 Birthing Suites are private and cozy; 8 are equipped with a laboring tub for patient comfort. The suites are designed so that laboring women, their support person/people and baby can stay together in the same room throughout the birth experience — from labor and delivery through recovery and post-partum. 

Orthopedic / Surgical Unit — With 26 private patient suites, the SMH-Venice Ortho team provides the same nationally recognized excellence in orthopedic and surgical care that we’ve provided for decades at the SMH-Sarasota campus.

Cardiac Care — Equipped with 26 private patient suites, the specialized Cardiac Care Unit is designed to monitor and treat patients presenting with serious or acute heart problems. 

Critical Care — Designed and built amid the COVID-19 pandemic, every ICU room can be converted to a negative pressure room, in the event of a COVID-19 resurgence or other pandemic involving highly infectious airborne disease.

Other Services — Other specialized services SMH-Venice will offer include Laboratory/Diagnostic Testing; Catheterization Lab; Respiratory Therapy; Endoscopy; Gastroenterology; Nephrology; Neurology/Neurosurgery; Oncology; Urology; and Interventional Radiology.

Ready to Grow with the Community

Plenty of space on campus means plenty of room to expand to meet the growing needs of the community for years to come.

SMH-Venice has the capacity to more than double in size, to 300 private patient suites, 16 surgical suites and a 50-bed ER. The expansion also will bring Sarasota Memorial's extensive physician base farther south and help build the medical staff for a future hospital in North Port.

 "We are excited to be transforming healthcare in south county," said SMH-Venice President Sharon Roush said. "This is just the beginning."
