Gift Honors the Rosenberg’s Team of Physicians
BOCA RATON, FL – May 4, 2022 – Retired Boca Raton resident Ken Rosenberg, and his wife Maggie, have made
a $1 million gift to
Keeping the Promise…The Campaign for Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Their generous gift is helping to propel the Campaign closer to its $250
million goal with more than $229 million raised thus far.
“This gift from the Rosenbergs is a special one for the campaign,”
said Lincoln Mendez, CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Ken and
Maggie were motivated by the great care that they received from Boca Regional
doctors, including Dr. John Strobis, and other outstanding physicians
– who have all had a profound impact on his and his family’s
health. It is a wonderful reminder that the campus redevelopment plans
provide the facilities that are much needed, but it is still the caregivers
and their relationships that continue to make the difference in patients’
lives. We thank the couple for reinforcing this so dramatically with their
This is not the first gift from Ken Rosenberg to the hospital. In 2011,
he supported the campaign for the new Emergency Department. Ken and Maggie’s
current gift will be honored through the naming of the eighth floor Nurses
Station in the new Gloria Drummond Patient Tower. “In the old days,
if you got sick, you would run back to New York to see your doctors. Now,
we are running back to be here in Boca Raton to have the quality facilities
and physicians offered by this growing hospital,” said Ken Rosenberg.
"The doctors and nurses are the fabric of our community’s lives.”
Since Mr. Rosenberg's retirement from the textile and garment industry
in New York, he and Maggie split their time between Boca Raton and Quogue,
New York. “When we heard of the Rosenbergs’ intentions with
this gift, it was heartwarming,” said Stan Barry, co-chair of
Keeping the Promise. “We all inherently know the value of extraordinary caregivers,
but sometimes it takes a gesture such as this to properly underscore it.
We are so thankful to the Rosenbergs for their gift.”
The $250 million
Keeping the Promise Campaign is the largest fund-raising initiative in Boca Regional’s
history and is supporting its most ambitious period of growth and expansion.
The campus redevelopment plans include at the centerpiece, the new Gloria
Drummond Patient Tower where patients will be welcomed in the inviting
new Louis B. and Anne W. Green Lobby with plans for retail, dining, meeting
space, a sanctuary, outdoor courtyards, and other conveniences for visitors.
The new tower features all new surgical suites and all private patient
rooms exceeding the latest safety standards for patient care. In the current
hospital building, all existing rooms will be converted to private in
a comprehensive renovation of all patient units including maternity, oncology,
and orthopedics. An expansion of the Marcus Neuroscience Institute is
underway with emphasis on neurovascular/stroke, central nervous system
tumors, spine, and epilepsy/seizure disorders. The recently opened 972-car
Schmidt Family Parking Facility will be connected to the Marcus Neuroscience
Institute once the new tower construction is complete. Also, well underway
with dramatic progress on campus is the new Toby and Leon Cooperman Medical
Arts Pavilion with outpatient surgery, physician offices, an Ambulatory
Surgery Center and adjacent parking.
