SMH Begins Construction on $75 Million Research Facility
Sarasota Memorial Health Care System Initiates Construction of New Research and Education Institute
The facility will span approximately 80,000 square feet and consist of five stories.
It will house Sarasota Memorial's expanding clinical research division, clinical and graduate medical education programs, a medical library, and a cutting-edge simulation center for hands-on training.
The Research and Education Institute aims to centralize all medical education and research activities in one location.
Skilled physicians, clinical investigators, and nurse educators will collaborate in this innovative clinical education environment.
The health system's clinical research and education programs have experienced significant growth in recent years.
The new facility will create additional clinical space in the current hospital for patient care.
A parking garage with capacity for approximately 300 vehicles will be built alongside the new facility.
The research facility is set to open in 2025 and will be situated at the former site of the Doctors Gardens medical office building.
