Gift honors Rosenberg team of doctors
Boca Raton, Florida – Retired Boca Raton resident Ken Rosenberg and his wife Maggie donated $1 million to keep the promise…The Boca Raton Regional Hospital Campaign. Their generous donation is helping propel the campaign closer to its $250 million goal with over $229 million raised so far.
“This gift from the Rosenbergs is special for the campaign,” said Lincoln Mendez, CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Ken and Maggie were motivated by the exceptional care they received from Boca Regional physicians, including Dr. John Strobis, and other exceptional physicians – all of whom had a profound impact on his health and that of his family. It’s a wonderful reminder that campus redevelopment plans provide much needed facilities, but it’s still the caregivers and their relationships that continue to make a difference in the lives of patients.We thank the couple for to have reinforced this so dramatically with their generous donation.
This isn’t Ken Rosenberg’s first gift to the hospital. In 2011, he supported the campaign for the new emergency department. Ken and Maggie’s current gift will be honored by the name of the eighth floor nurses’ station in the new Gloria Drummond patient tower. “It used to be that if you got sick you would run to New York to see your doctors. Now we are coming back here to Boca Raton to have the quality facilities and physicians offered by this growing hospital,” said Ken Rosenberg. “Doctors and nurses are the fabric of life in our community.
Since Mr. Rosenberg’s retirement from the textile and apparel industry in New York, he and Maggie have divided their time between Boca Raton and Quogue, New York. “When we heard about the Rosenbergs’ intentions with this gift, it warmed our hearts,” said Stan Barry, Co-Chair of keep the promise. “We all inherently know the value of extraordinary caregivers, but sometimes it takes a gesture like this to really underline it. We are very grateful to the Rosenbergs for their gift.
