SARASOTA - Sarasota Memorial Hospital is urging patients to not delay medical services if needed.

SMH resumed elective surgeries two weeks ago and is now resuming full services within the hospital.

President and CEO of Sarasota Memorial Hospital, David Verinder gave an update on the latest health and safety information.

Verinder wants to ensure that people are not delaying services and taking care of themselves.

“This hospital is a very, very safe place to be, we encourage you to come in if our having stroke symptoms if you’re having heart issues. Don’t delay, you could cause yourself irreparable harm where you can’t recover. If you are still really concerned about going to see a physician, a lot of our physicians are doing telehealth now,” said President and CEO of SMH, David Verinder.

Verinder encourages calling your physician and expressing your concerns so they can do their best to accommodate you.

Although SMH is resuming full services, the hospital is still enforcing limited visitation within the hospital, encouraging patients to connect with their loved ones via video calling apps like FaceTime or Skype.
