Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation has received $25 million from the Brian and Sheila Jellison Family Foundation.
The Jellisons’ donation is the largest in the Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation’s history, pushing the healthcare foundation’s cancer campaign closer to its $75 million goal.
The cancer institute is expanding its team of oncology specialists and creating a centralized place for coordinated care and support for patients, families and caregivers.
The cancer Institute will now be known as the Brian D. Jellison Cancer Institute, which will include the eight-story oncology tower being built on the hospital’s main campus. The building is expected to be open in fall 2021.
