Paving the way for new entrances
04.29.2010 [Campus Improvements]

Construction of Sarasota Memorial’s new courtyard bed tower will require the hospital’s main entrance and valet stand to move closer to the Waldemere Parking Garage. Work on the new primary entrance will proceed in several phases. First, workers must build a temporary entrance to the Waldemere Garage off Waldemere Street (see photo above). When the interim garage entrance is finished in May, construction will begin on a new front door and canopied valet area at the current Waldemere Garage entrance on Hawthorne Street. The new vestibule will serve as the hospital’s main entry point until the bed tower is complete.
