Toby and Leon Cooperman Medical Arts Pavilion at Boca Raton Regional Hospital 760x320

On Nov. 13, Boca Raton Regional Hospital celebrated the opening of the Toby and Leon Cooperman Medical Arts Pavilion.

Construction for the Pavilion began a little over two years ago as part of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation’s (BRRHF) “Keeping the Promise” campaign, an historic fundraising campaign that to date has brought in nearly $270 million from the local philanthropic community, including $25 million from the building’s namesakes, Toby and Leon Cooperman.

Among the many state-of-the-art medical technologies housed in the new pavilion is a High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound machine, a non-invasive treatment that uses high frequency sound waves to destroy prostate cancer cells without damaging the surrounding tissue or organs.

The new Pavilion will be essentially a one-stop shop for medical care. The building houses doctor’s offices, medical specialty clinics and five new operating rooms double the size of the hospital’s existing ORs—all a stone’s throw away from the new, multi-story Eleanor R. Baldwin parking garage.

The next phase of the hospital’s “Keeping the Promise” campaign will include the opening of the Gloria Drummond Patient Tower, a 462-room facility that will give patients their own private rooms. Other future projects include a proton therapy treatment facility, a renovation of the existing hospital, a new central energy plant that will keep the hospital self-sufficient through emergencies, and more. Within 10 years, the total investment in the hospital will exceed $1 billion, including funds from Boca Regional parent company Baptist Health South Florida.
