Sarasota Memorial Hospital broke ground last week on a new cancer pavilion.
The seven-story, $220 million building is being constructed on Waldemere Street, across the street from the hospital’s oncology tower, which opened in 2021.
According to SMH, the 200,000-square-foot facility “will support an entire continuum of cancer care — from prevention, screening and diagnosis to treatment, clinical trials, survivorship care and lifetime support” — in the community.
Among the offerings will be diagnostic imaging suites with CT and MRI technology; medical, surgical and radiation oncology physician practices; integrative care clinics; and an expanded breast health center with mammography, ultrasound, stereotactic and nuclear medicine technology.
The pavilion will be the third facility to make up the Jellison Cancer Institute at SMH’s Sarasota campus. It is expected to open in late 2025.
