SMH-Venice Clinical Services & Facilities

Networked information technology connects SMH-Venice and other Sarasota Memorial care centers, ensuring patients can receive an uninterrupted continuity of care across our locations.

Healthcare services at SMH-Venice include:

Emergency Care (ER) — With 28 beds, 2 trauma/resuscitation rooms, X-ray and a stroke care hub, the SMH-Venice ER is open 24/7 to treat and diagnose injury, stroke, cardiac events, allergic reactions and other emergent conditions. 

Radiology — The SMH-Venice Radiology Department offers inpatient and outpatient imaging, including MRI, CT scans, fluoroscopy and X-rays. It also features 2 nuclear medicine suites, stress testing and a bi-plane interventional radiology suite. Breast health services at SMH-Venice includes ultrasound and bone density testing, 3D mammography and a stereotactic biopsy suite.

Maternity Services — The SMH-Venice Labor / Delivery / Recovery / Post-Partum Unit (LDRP) supports women and babies at every step of their journey. All 10 Birthing Suites are private and cozy; 8 are equipped with a laboring tub for patient comfort. The suites are designed so that laboring women, their support person/people and baby can stay together in the same room throughout the birth experience — from labor and delivery through recovery and post-partum. 

Orthopedic / Surgical Unit — With 34 private patient suites, the SMH-Venice Ortho team provides the same nationally recognized excellence in orthopedic and surgical care that we’ve provided for decades at the SMH-Sarasota campus.

Cardiac Care — Equipped with 34 private patient suites, the specialized Cardiac Care Unit is designed to monitor and treat patients presenting with serious or acute heart problems. 

Critical Care — Built amid the COVID-19 pandemic, every ICU room can be converted to a negative pressure room, in the event of a COVID-19 resurgence or other pandemic involving highly infectious airborne disease.

Other Services — Other specialized services at SMH-Venice include Laboratory/Diagnostic Testing; Catheterization Lab; Respiratory Therapy; Endoscopy; Gastroenterology; Nephrology; Neurology/Neurosurgery; Oncology; Urology; and Interventional Radiology.

Ready to Grow with the Community

Plenty of space on campus means plenty of room to expand to meet the growing needs of the community for years to come.

With the opening of the 4th & 5th floors of a third patient care tower in April 2024, 68 private patient suites were added to ease capacity constraints and decrease the need to transfer and admit patient to the SMH-Sarasota Campus. The second floor of the tower with an additional 34 private suites is planned to open by the end of 2024. The ground level includes space for additional patient care and support services in the future, while the third level is interstitial space for mechanical systems. 

Construction is also well under way on a 30,000-square-foot expansion of SMH-Venice's Emergency Center. When complete at the end of 2024, the ER will more then double in size from 28 rooms to 61, and include enhancements to registration and support areas and increased imaging capabilities.
