Co-Chair Message

Half a century ago, residents of our community were inspired by the passionate determination of Gloria Drummond to provide excellent healthcare close to home. They raised the funds to build a hospital, and since then, Boca Regional’s mission has always been to respond to the needs of our patients and their families.

While the community has grown as a vibrant center for living and working, our Hospital has kept pace. Today, through the philanthropic support of our donors, Boca Regional has transformed into an advanced, academic medical center with nationally-recognized centers of excellence that offer residents ready access to world-renowned health care professionals and technology. You have helped us accomplish a status of superb medicine, while we have doggedly maintained perhaps our greatest asset…the administering of that care in a sensitive and compassionate manner.

Our mission, our history, and our accomplishments proudly precede us. We are uniquely positioned to chart the course for the future of healthcare in our region. And that future will be immeasurably buoyed by our impending partnership with Baptist Health South Florida, one of the most respected healthcare organizations in the country, and one that shares Boca Regional’s culture of care, and commitment to unrivaled excellence. Their presence will take Boca Raton Regional Hospital to a new zenith, one that features access to unequaled service areas of distinction in all manner of life-saving and life-enriching care. Importantly, it will yield confidence in and preparation for a historical long-term vision for the campus that enhances care and provides access to unimagined services.

Today, we are in the process of that vital first step toward our radiant future…an enormous step we must take in advance of other giant future leaps forward. Our current modernization initiative will re-imagine the campus, shaping the future of an unprecedented, world-class medical sophistication we envision. This ambitious project includes a new seven-story patient tower, an expansion of our critically acclaimed Marcus Neuroscience Institute, the renovation of our existing facility to create an all private patient room environment, and a new 972-car parking garage.

This remarkable transformation comes with a challenging financial investment in excess of half a billion dollars. Accordingly, we are preparing to conduct a campaign that will fund this vision and make our exciting plans a reality. We are confident that our many friends will again come together to create a successful philanthropic partnership. We founded our healthcare presence a half century ago on the strength of our community’s generosity. We need to do it again and we ask you join with us in taking this urgent next step.
