Today, thanks to advances in treatment, break-through technologies and revolutionary research, more than half of all cancer patients are cured. Many others lead full, active lives for years, their cancer managed with medications or therapy. The key is getting the correct diagnosis and proper care early. That’s why, when choosing your health care provider, it's important to look for one with years of experience and advanced specialties to treat all kinds of cancer.
No oncology program in the region has more to offer than Sarasota Memorial’s Institute for Cancer Care: Nationally recognized physicians and nurses, the latest detection and treatment technologies, access to cutting edge research and clinical trials, and the compassionate, healing care cancer patients and their families need to stay focused on recovery, and getting back to the people they love most.

Sarasota Memorial is one of the first hospitals in Florida certified to provide cancer patients with the STAR® treatment – individualized, comprehensive rehabilitation treatments designed to manage any pain, weakness, cognitive impairment or other issues that follow your cancer treatment. The nationally recognized, evidence-based Survivorship Training and Rehabilitation program helps survivors physically and emotionally heal from the side-effects of chemotherapy, radiation, surgery or other cancer therapy. The program focuses on improving not only symptoms, but also personal wellness and quality of life through nutrition, exercise, relaxation and educational services.
