Sarasota Memorial’s new Venice Urgent Care Center, right, won the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce’s Beautification Award for May. The Chamber’s Ambassador’s Committee said the prestigious award is presented to area businesses that have made a contribution to Venice “by enhancing the appearance of their building or property, or in your case a sparkling new building!” Ambulatory Services Manager Shelley Bartlett, pictured below at left, accepted the award from Natalie Bloom, chair of the Venice Chamber Ambassadors Committee.
Sarasota Memorial opened the new center, located at 997 N. US 41 Bypass, last fall. The Urgent Care Center is open 8 am – 8 pm, seven days a week and is staffed by board-certified emergency care and family physicians. The facility also includes diagnostic imaging, laboratory services and the medical offices of First Physicians Group. Contact the center at (941) 952-4250.
