Born out of compelling need in 1967, Boca Raton Regional Hospital has consistently focused its efforts and its resources on one mission and one purpose only; the health and welfare of the patients it serves.
Now, some forty years later, that singular approach to medicine has placed the Hospital in the vanguard of patient care in such areas as Cardiovascular Care, Oncology, Women's Health, Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine and the Neurosciences.
With 400 licensed beds, 800 physicians, a nursing and support staff of over 2000 and 1200 volunteers, Boca Raton Regional Hospital has evolved from a capable community hospital into one of the preeminent medical centers in Florida.

We also will meet leaders from organizations involved in medical tourism which will assist in promoting our services internationally, said Mindy Shikiar, Vice President of Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
