The Martin F. Greenberg Family Foundation contributed $1 million to a health care cause that will result in the naming of the post-anesthesia care unit.
On the second floor of Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Center for Surgical Services, the state-of-the-art Martin F. Greenberg and Family PACU will have 26 bays, isolation rooms and two nurses stations.
“When I decide to support an organization, it’s really because it tickles my fancy,” Greenberg said of the hospital and its foundation. “Its mission and goals need to be sound and impactful. And, just as importantly, its people need to be worthy. The hospital and the foundation ... they are made up of special people.”
The donation, announced in March, brought to $224 million the total raised for “Keeping the Promise — the Campaign for Boca Raton Regional Hospital.”
The goal is $250 million for the largest fundraising initiative in the hospital’s history. The money is supporting its most ambitious period of expansion.
“This leadership gift to Boca Regional is especially meaningful to me and Tali because it benefits our friends and neighbors,” Greenberg said, referring to his wife. “Boca Raton Regional Hospital has a great impact on our community, and we want to do everything we can to support it.”
