Boca Raton: Hospital merger a done deal

By Sallie James

Boca Raton Regional Hospital has finally officially merged with Baptist Health
South Florida.
The official merger was announced on July 1, more than a year after Boca Regional began
discussions with Baptist in hopes of elevating the hospital’s position as an academic referral
center in South Florida.
It was the final step in growing up for a beloved community hospital born out of tragedy in 1967.
The poisoning deaths of two young children became the impetus for its funding. The town had
about 10,000 residents at that time and a devoted group of volunteers with a mission.
The new partnership ensures both not-for-profit organizations will continue to meet their mutual
missions and commitments to elevate health care 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 deliver compassionate healthcare to our patients at the highest standards of excellence and
safety. We foresee an exciting future at Boca Regional Hospital that will cement its title as the
preeminent healthcare provider in the community,” said Brian E. Keeley, president and CEO at
Baptist Health.
