Bermans the Latest Seven-Figure Gift to Keeping the Promise
BOCA RATON, FL – July 23, 2020 - Boca Raton Regional Hospital has received a seven-figure gift, from
Sandra and Malcolm Berman, towards
Keeping the Promise…The Campaign for Boca Raton Regional Hospital. The campaign supports the hospital’s campus redevelopment plan
and has already raised $163 million toward its goals, thanks to the leadership
gift by the Bermans combined with the tremendous support of other philanthropists
in the community. In recognition of Sandra and Malcolm’s generosity,
the new Elevator Lobby on the first floor in the new patient tower will
be named in their honor.
“Sandra and Malcolm represent the best of Boca Raton Regional Hospital,”
said Lincoln Mendez, CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “They
have been active philanthropically with us for nearly 20 years, and understand
the value of their partnership with the hospital and how it benefits the
people of our community. We are deeply grateful for their support.”
Sandra and Malcolm Berman have been active in philanthropy for several
organizations in their hometown of Baltimore and in the surrounding area.
The couple established the Sandra & Malcolm Berman Charitable Foundation
there many years ago and Sandra serves as President.
“We are thankful they believe in our long-term vision, and share
in our spirit, passion, and organizational mission,” said Christine
E. Lynn, Chair of the Hospital Board of Directors. “The Bermans
join so many others in pushing this historic initiative and campaign forward.”
The $250 million
Keeping the Promise campaign is the largest campaign in the Hospital’s history. It is
supporting major campus redevelopment plans including at the centerpiece,
a new patient tower featuring all new surgical suites, an inviting patient
lobby and all private patient rooms exceeding the latest safety standards
for patient care. The Marcus Neuroscience Institute expansion is underway
targeting all neuroscience programs with an emphasis on neurovascular/stroke,
central nervous system, tumor, spine, and epilepsy/seizure disorders.
In the current hospital building, all existing rooms will be converted
to private in a comprehensive renovation of all patient units. A new 972-car
parking garage opened recently and will be connected to MNI the Marcus
Neuroscience Institute once the new tower construction is complete. Also
included in the plans is a new Medical Arts Pavilion with an outpatient
surgery center, physician offices and additional parking. These investments
are the initial steps toward an even broader vision for the campus with
greater access points and even more specialties.
“Our healthcare in Boca Raton, and that of our family and friends,
is a significant motivation in our giving to this extraordinary organization,”
said Malcolm Berman. “Sandra and I care about this community and
want to be part of this next generation of groundbreaking innovation and
