Flad Project Recognized with ABC Award
Sarasota Memorial Health Care System's Radiation Oncology Center was recently honored with an Excellence in Construction Award from ABC Florida First Coast. The distinction recognizes projects that represent the highest level of achievement in construction and honors the most innovative and high-quality construction projects.
This project completes the first phase of Sarasota Memorial's Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute, a destination program providing a complete continuum of comprehensive cancer care. The Radiation Oncology Center offers outpatient external beam radiation services in a comfortable, spa-like environment. The 18,000-square-foot facility is equipped with two linear accelerators that accurately pinpoint tumors, sparing healthy cells from radiation. This cutting-edge technology facilitates faster treatments, shorter recovery periods, and improved outcomes. The center also includes a CT simulator, six exam rooms, and physician offices.
Informed by feedback from hospital user groups and community members, the facility is designed to focus on the whole patient by integrating advanced technology with holistic wellness elements such as a serenity garden and a supportive services suite. Filled with natural light, thoughtful artwork, and soft colors, the center offers a respectful, calming experience – a welcome alternative to traditional oncology centers.
