When Ray Miller was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, he and his wife Jill feared the worst. His doctor referred him to Sarasota Memorial Gastrointestinal Oncologist Kenneth Meredith, MD, who has performed more robotic esophagectomies than anyone else in the world. At Sarasota Memorial, Dr. Meredith and hospital's highly skilled robotic team performed a robotic-assisted esophagectomy. Not only did it remove Ray's cancer, it also resulted in a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.  Learn more by watching the video.

SMH has opened a Milk Depot to make it easier for local moms to donate their breast milk to struggling preemies. A mother’s own breast milk is always the best choice for her newborn, but when it isn’t available, breast milk donated by thoroughly screened donors is the next best option for fragile, sick and premature babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units. There is no cost or compensation to moms to donate the milk. The milk bank sells the milk to hospitals to cover basic costs. Local moms interested in donating can start the screening process by calling the Mothers’ Milk Bank of Florida at (407) 248-5050 or visiting milkbankofflorida.org.
