Baptist Health South Florida wants to construct a medical office building next to Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
The Miami-based nonprofit merged with BRRH in 2019. The Boca Raton nonprofit already launched a $250 million fundraising campaign to build a patient tower and a 972-space parking garage on its main campus.
The new application, which BRRH recently filed with the city, pertains to the 2.9-acre site at 745 Meadows Road. Located next to the hospital, the property currently has three office buildings for a combined 32,453 square feet. They were built in the early 1970s and would be demolished to make way for a larger office building and a parking garage.
The new office building would total 61,500 square feet in three stories. It would be accompanied by a four-story, 382-space parking garage. According to the application, the building would contain both medical office space and an ambulatory surgery center, which would alleviate demand on the operating rooms in the main hospital.
It would be called the Toby and Leon Cooperman Pavilion. The family recently donated $25 million to BRRH.
Officials at Baptist Health didn’t comment on the pending application. It is working with planning firm Urban Design Studio. The project was designed by Nelson Architecture and Interiors.
