Notice: Visitation Restricted

Effective 6 pm March 20, visitation at Sarasota Memorial Hospital is no longer allowed. Limited exceptions to the visitor restriction will be made in special instances, such as end of life, NICU / birth support, and an essential caregiver in emergencies. Click here for more information. 

The temporary "No Visitors" policy extends to the Bayside Center for Behavioral Health and the Sarasota Memorial Nursing and Rehab Center as well.

We encourage you to connect with hospitalized loved ones through video calls via FaceTime, WhatsApp and other video chat apps. Our team is happy to help coordinate those calls, if needed; click here for instructions. Contact a nurse on the unit, if there are any other special needs we can help address.

Activating this “No Visitors” policy is part of Sarasota Memorial’s ongoing commitment to address the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, while ensuring the health and safety of our patients, their families, our staff and the greater community. We appreciate the community continued support and understanding.
