With the successful completion of the application process to become a Level II Trauma Center with full designation from the Florida Department of Health, the “provisional” sign was recently removed from both the north and east face of Sarasota Memorial Hospital. The state’s approval is the culmination of an intensive process that began in early 2015 with a unanimous vote by the Sarasota County Public Hospital Board to commit the finances, resources and personnel necessary to support the new trauma center — the first and only trauma program in Sarasota County.
