From the Healthcare Foundation's very beginning in 1976,
its purpose has been to ENVISION
what healthcare can and should be in our community.

Greetings and Welcome:

We are delighted that you are visiting our website, thank you.

We have redesigned this site to offer you easier, quicker and more complete information, as well as a more visually stimulating look at Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation, Inc. This new branding - a redesigned logo and our ENVISION Tomorrow's Medical Care, Today - will be the hallmark of our efforts which support Sarasota Memorial Health Care System (SMHCS) and other healthcare programs in Sarasota County.

ENVISION has been created to provide you, our friends and supporters, with information about the changes in medicine in myriad areas at SMHCS, such as cardiology, oncology, neurology, pediatrics, technology and research, just to name a few. ENVISION will also share with you current program needs for our hospital.

The Healthcare Foundation has been through much growth since 1976, when the founding trustees saw the need for programs such as the first open heart facility, the first MRI, and the first minimally invasive brain surgical equipment...all leading edge and all new technology and programs for Sarasota.

Helping Sarasota Memorial provide the latest in technology advancements and ongoing education to assist SMH in retaining the best and brightest have been our trademarks. However, none of this is done without having a facility like Sarasota Memorial or having the amazing charitable support we are so fortunate to receive from you, our donors.

So, please look at our changes, give us your feedback and most of all - stay or become involved. We have several great events planned for the coming year, so please look for the details under the Special Events tab......

As always, thank you for your involvement and generous support.
