North Port Office Appointments
Sarasota Memorial Hospsital – Venice Campus

We currently have offices in North Port and Sarasota. As a Group, we have decided we will not care for patients or deliver babies at the Venice Campus at this time.

Our physicians prefer to continue using the Sarasota Campus where they have the option and convenience of having the Level 2 NICU available if needed for the safety of our New Mom and Baby.

The Venice Campus will only allow deliveries of patients that have had no high-risk factors during pregnancy so they are able to complete what may be considered to be a normal, routine delivery. All other patients may be required to be transported by ambulance to the Sarasota Campus. A costly alternative. Thank you for your understanding.
