BOYNTON BEACH, FL – July 22, 2021 – Eugene M. & Christine
E. Lynn Cancer Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital has expanded
its life-saving cancer diagnosis and treatment services in Palm Beach
County to a new location at Bethesda Health City, part of Bethesda Hospital
East. The facility is located at 10301 Hagen Ranch Road in Boynton Beach.
The new location, under the direction of
Michael Kasper, M.D., medical director of radiation oncology at Lynn Cancer Institute, is at
10301 Hagen Ranch Road in Boynton Beach. It is one of many healthcare
services available at Bethesda Health City, an outpatient center that
is part of Bethesda Hospital East.
“We look forward to this partnership that will help us bring state-of-the-art
comprehensive oncology care closer to our patients and community,”
says Nelson Lazo, CEO of Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West.
Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital
West are all part of Baptist Health South Florida, the largest not-for-profit
medical provider in the region. Baptist Health also operates Miami Cancer
Institute and is in the process of integrating their complementary services
to give patients increased and expedited access to expert care.
Lynn Cancer Institute has one of the largest comprehensive oncology programs
in Florida, offering top medical and surgical experts as well as the latest
in diagnostics and therapeutic cancer treatments. The Institute, which
receives about 150,000 patient visits yearly, takes a multidisciplinary
approach to cancer care and has access to groundbreaking research trials
from nationally recognized programs.
“When we work together, we can accomplish more,” says Louise
Morrell, M.D., medical director of Lynn Cancer Institute. “With
every cancer diagnosis, our goal is to provide patients and their families
with personalized care driven by the latest molecular testing and state-of-the-art
technology, while maintaining an unsurpassed patient experience.”
Bethesda Hospital East provides comprehensive services, including a nationally
recognized orthopedic total joint replacement program; cardiovascular
care; vascular, endovascular and robotic surgery; women’s and children’s
services and also offers inpatient oncology services and an infusion center
on its campus in Boynton Beach, north of Boca Raton. The hospital offers
imaging services at Bethesda Health City, an outpatient center on Hagen
Ranch Road between Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West.
Oncology services at this location will be identified as Lynn Cancer Institute
at Bethesda – Radiation Oncology, under the direction of Michael
Kasper, M.D., medical director of radiation oncology at the Institute.
In addition to its main location at Boca Regional, Lynn Cancer Institute
already operates two satellite facilities in Delray Beach — one
on Military Trail and the other on Linton Boulevard. With increasing cancer
specialization and the need for the latest technology, the expansion to
Bethesda Hospital will greatly benefit patients.
“In coordination with Miami Cancer Institute, our programs are really
the anchors of cancer care from the Keys to Palm Beach County,”
Dr. Morrell says. “Our common goal is to ensure that every patient
with cancer, or at high risk, has access to the very best care available.
Integration means widening our circle of expertise and having support
as we expand.”

About Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute
The Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is one of the largest
cancer centers in South Florida and is accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer
Center by the American College of Surgeons. The Lynn Cancer Institute
treats more than 4,000 patients each year in facilities such as the Harvey
& Phyllis Sandler Pavilion, the state-of-the-art cancer center. While
traditional cancer treatment requires patients to travel from physician
to physician and manage their own scheduling, the Sandler Pavilion centralizes
services in one location. This simplifies the entire process for patients,
from diagnosis and treatment, to Wellness and Survivorship programs and
allows patients to focus on one thing — recovery.
More than 20 oncology physicians and a full complement of oncology professionals
are on staff to serve the patients at the Lynn Cancer Institute. Patients
receive treatment and services from specialists in genetics, surgery,
radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology and imaging. In addition,
staff includes research nurses, who improve patient access to clinical
trials and the most advanced forms of treatment.
