Flad Hospital Design Receives HCD Showcase Award
Adding to a growing list of distinguished award achievements, the Flad-designed Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Venice has been named among this year's winners in Healthcare Design Magazine's Healthcare Design Showcase. The prestigious awards program honors the very best healthcare design and architecture across the globe.

About Sarasota Memorial Hospital-VeniceEvery detail of this new, highly anticipated hospital was designed to create a welcoming and comfortable experience for patients, visitors, and staff. Extensive use of high-performance glass on the building's exterior sets the stage for a primary design theme of transparency, resulting in interior spaces that are filled with natural light and feature expansive views to the landscaped campus. A cohesive design language rounds out the unique atmosphere on all hospital levels, formed by durable, natural materials; thoughtful use of local artwork; custom, large-format wall coverings; and specialized lighting systems.
From the gracious and inviting double-height lobby, visitors and families are directed to registration, imaging, and surgical services, with contemporary food and nutrition amenities within view. Check-in desks, waiting areas, and vertical circulation points are sprinkled along the primary interior path with serpentine-like lighting coves flowing from the lobby to various departments, creating pleasant layers of light and reinforcing intuitive navigation.
