Exciting day at Sarasota Memorial - installation of the construction crane at the new Rehab Pavilion site!  The tower crane will be 106' to the hook which will put the highest point at approximately 120'.

Spring cleaning is not just for closets! Instead of reorganizing your clothes and shoes, think about turning your attention to the refrigerator. Sarasota Memorial Registered Dietitian, Kathy Namolik, advises cleaning the refrigerator could have positive influences on a person’s health — by eliminating food that’s past its prime and organizing to keep healthy items in plain view.  Get started by cleaning the refrigerator from top to bottom and be sure to use cleaning products intended to be used on food surfaces.
