A LEGACY OF COMPASSIONATE CARE
Home is the place where family lives. Where we’re cared for and cared about; where our concerns are addressed and our needs are met; and where we share common values and work together to achieve common goals. Home is a place where we’re respected and, most importantly, loved. Pines of Sarasota is home to every resident and rehabilitation patient and every one of them is part of our family.
To assure our family a meaningful quality of life, a sense of well-being and their well-deserved dignity, we provide an unparalleled level of rehabilitation services that offer hope and recovery; an assisted living environment that respects independence; long-term, compassionate skilled nursing care that provides assistance with the activities of daily living; and educational services for residential and at-home caregivers.
Our vision is to continue to be the preeminent provider in the fields of rehabilitation, geriatric healthcare, education and support.
So it has been since we opened our doors in 1948, thanks to the recognition by The Kiwanis Club of Sarasota of the need to open a nursing home for Sarasota’s elderly in poor health and with limited incomes. They raised the funds to purchase property at 12th Street and Orange Avenue and open two resident halls and a dining room.
Today, the not-for-profit Pines of Sarasota has grown into a 25-acre campus with 19 buildings, with capacity for 276 residents, and over 300 employees; and it continues to grow in order to provide a home to our ever-growing family.
