Sarasota County Health Safety Net System of Care Collaboration
Strengthening the Impact
Why did The Patterson Foundation support this initiative?
What healthcare organizations are involved with this initiative?
The four entities collaborating within the Health Safety Net were, and continue to be, the Community Health Centers of Sarasota County, Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County, Friendship Centers, and Sarasota Memorial Health Care System. These organizations have worked closely together since the collaboration began.
Although these four meet to discuss the Health Safety Net within the context of this work, these are not the only Sarasota County organizations helping to provide care to the uninsured and underinsured.
