Baptist Health South Florida announced the completion of its partnership with
Boca Raton Regional Hospital on
7.1.19. With this, Boca Raton Regional Hospital is now operating as part of Baptist Health South Florida. The new partnership ensures both not-for-profit organizations will continue to meet their mutual missions and commitments to elevate healthcare within the communities they serve in an area that reaches across four South Florida counties.
"Our organizations share the same calling to improve the health and well-being of individuals and to deliver compassionate healthcare to our patients at the highest standards of excellence and safety. We foresee an exciting future at Boca Raton Regional Hospital that will cement its title as the preeminent healthcare provider in the community," said
Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO of Baptist Health.
In May, Boca Raton Regional Hospital announced the appointment of
Lincoln S. Mendez as its new chief executive officer to succeed
Jerry Fedele when he retires in August. Mendez formerly was CEO at Baptist Health's South Miami Hospital in Miami-Dade County.
"Today's announcement concludes a process that will elevate our position as an advanced, tertiary academic center," said
Christine E. Lynn, Board Chair at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. "I thank everyone who participated in this process, both at Boca Regional and Baptist Health, for this exciting outcome."
