Hospitality Suite/Shabbat Room At Boca Raton Regional Hospital

Bikur Cholim of South Palm Beach County has announced that the new Jewish Hospitality Suite and Shabbat Room for family members of patients at Boca Raton Regional Hospital is now open. The room, located on the third floor, is made possible by generous gifts from Bikur Cholim of South Palm Beach County, The Yehuda Memorial Center, and the hospital. It is the first Shabbat Room in Palm Beach County.

“We are very pleased to be working with Boca Raton Regional Hospital to provide this new service to the Jewish community.” said Stanley Smith, Bikur Cholim’s founder and president. “It will be greatly appreciated by patients and family members who will now be able to be with their loved ones on the Sabbath and holidays, and will contribute to better patient care.”

The opening is the culmination of seven years of effort by Smith, which took place through several successive hospital administrations. Renovation and furnishing is currently underway and the room is expected to be in full use in December. The attractively decorated and comfortably furnished room is equipped with kitchen facilities, couches, tables and chairs, Jewish books and religious articles. The room will have a variety of kosher foods that will be regularly restocked and by Bikur Cholim volunteers.

“Having a family member or dear friend ill and hospitalized is a trying experience for everyone involved,” said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. “Providing a Shabbat Room for our visitors will greatly help in allowing them to see and support their loved ones. We are most pleased to partner with Bikur Cholim and Yehuda Memorial Center on this most worthwhile endeavor.”

Bikur Cholim of South Palm Beach County is an organization of volunteers that visits Jewish patients in hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes, hospices and homes. The organization lends a wide variety of durable medical equipment free of cost. Volunteers bring comfort, encouragement and prayer and help patients and their families address special needs and concerns.
