The Sarasota County Public Hospital Board this week authorized Sarasota Memorial staff to move forward with preliminary site and design plans for two new outpatient oncology facilities: a new six-story cancer pavilion on the hospital’s main campus in Sarasota and a two-story cancer center on its developing Venice campus.The new facilities are part of the next phase of the expanding Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute, a comprehensive cancer program SMH began developing in 2018 to provide patients seamless access to the latest treatments, technologies, support services, and clinical trials in their own community. 

Schematic design will take six to eight months, and pending further approval and funding by the hospital board, construction could begin late next year.
