According to a recent report, three Sarasota Counties retained their “A” ratings. The three hospitals are: Doctor’s Hospital in Sarasota, Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Sarasota and Englewood Community Hospital in Englewood. A nonprofit organization, The Leapfrog Group, is responsible for this rankings program and their goal is to reduce avoidable hospital deaths.

It’s reassuring to know that we live in an area that has top quality medical care available. When I’m assisting buyers and sellers here in the Venice and Nokomis area it’s often something they ask about. Living near a top ranked hospital can definitely help your peace of mind. Apparently Sarasota Memorial Hospital is planning on building another hospital facility on the corner of Laurel Rd and Pinebrook Rd in Nokomis/North Venice, near the new Honore Ave extension. That’s something I’ll write about in another post.
