Sarasota Memorial HealthSarasota, FL
An engagement system that addresses every facet of donor recognition.
Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is a regional referral center offering southwest Florida’s greatest breadth and depth of care, with more than 900,000 patient visits each year. Its flagship 839-bed, acute-care hospital has been consistently recognized as one of the nation’s largest and best, with superior patient outcomes and a complete continuum of outpatient services, from urgent care, trauma and emergency services to laboratory and diagnostic imaging, home health, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. The hospital is the only one in Florida to have consistently earned the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ highest five-star quality rating since the evaluation system launched in 2016.
Sarasota Memorial Hospital Foundation’s forward-thinking approach of “Envisioning the Future – Today” launched a philanthropic endeavor that culminated in a comprehensive and extremely successful donor engagement strategy. BrookGlobal partnered with the visionary Foundation, which recognized the importance of creating a culture of philanthropy. The Foundation worked with Brook to develop a donor engagement strategy that addressed every facet of their donor recognition needs, culminating in a multitude of elegant and creative artistic displays.
A unique, suspended glass and cable design situated directly in front of a floor-to-ceiling window looking out onto a new park, honors those who have contributed to the Envision capital campaign, which made Sarasota Memorial Hospital’s new courtyard tower possible.
On the east side of the lobby, an interactive multi-media presentation is housed within a complementary recognition display that showcases donor names as well as information about Foundation events, trustees, donors and history.
The EPIC (Employee Partners in Caring) Campaign celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013. In the west courtyard of the complex, distinctive, free-standing sculptures are dedicated to those employees and physicians who have made contributions in the past two campaigns. Benches, patios, trees, planters, street signs and other areas throughout the park have been named for individual employees and departments, and are recognized with tasteful signage that matches the theme of the main engagement system.
Quote from the client:
…As the project began to unfold, one of the major challenges Brook faced was our request to accelerate the installation timeline. They met this challenge, always remaining positive, upbeat and flexible.
The first incorporated a digital system located in the lobby of our new courtyard tower that recognizes our annual contributors…..This piece also gives us a way to publicize upcoming events, share donor stories, testimonials and highlight event sponsors. Conveniently, we can change out this information whenever we want from the ease of our home or office.
