Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health
& Wellness Institute
The new Christine E. Lynn Women's Health & Wellness Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital provides women in South Florida with a continuum of care that addresses a woman's unique medical needs from young adult and maternity care through menopause and perimenopause. The strikingly beautiful $22 million, 46,000 square-foot facility offers the expertise of renowned clinicians, the most advanced imaging technology in the region and a myriad of holistic and educational programs, as well as support groups.
The Institute was created out of a lead $10 million gift by Christine E. Lynn. Ms. Lynn gave the gift in honor of Gloria Drummond, the Hospital's founder, on her 80th birthday. Supported by the largesse of other local philanthropists, it now serves as a centralized address for the finest and most sophisticated women's healthcare services in South Florida.
The Institute is led by Kathy Schilling, MD. A board-certified and internationally recognized radiologist, Dr. Schilling joined Boca Raton Regional Hospital in 1988. Under her stewardship, the Schmidt Family Center for Breast Care at the Institute has developed into the area's premier and most preferred breast program, performing nearly 100,000 screening and diagnostic procedures a year.
'Our goal is to meld our leading position in breast health with the significant expertise Boca Regional has in such areas as pelvic health, cardiovascular disease and other important specialties,' said Dr. Schilling. 'In the new Christine E. Lynn Women's Health & Wellness Institute we have done just that and now offer a spectrum of services, all in one place and at one time.'
