Blake Medical Center

Tell us about your business and what you do?
For over 40 years, Blake Medical Center has been a provider of quality healthcare in the communities we serve. From elective life-improving services to emergent lifesaving services, we continue to evolve to meet your healthcare needs.

What makes your business stand out?
The Blake Medical Center team of skilled and compassionate employees, physicians and volunteers dedicate themselves to living our mission of providing exceptional care to every patient, every time. It is the entire team’s devotion to this shared purpose that makes Blake stand out in our community.

Why have you been successful?
I believe it is a result of our continuing to evolve in support of the community’s healthcare needs.  For example over the past several years we have added advanced services like Trauma, Burn, and Microvascular to build upon an already stellar healthcare service offering.

What advice would you give for someone planning to do business in Manatee County today?
Take the time to get involved. This may mean something different for every business. From joining the chamber, to volunteering or attending community events, the best way to do business in Manatee County is to be an active part of this amazing community.

Why did you choose to be involved in ‘Together Manatee’?
While our organization, employees and volunteers support numerous local non-profits, being involved in Together Manatee helps to coalesce those and other efforts to benefit our county for both residents and visitors.
