Thanks to the remarkable generosity of philanthropists Toby and Leon Cooperman, Boca Raton Regional Hospital – a cornerstone of the local community for over seven decades – is now home to the new Toby and Leon Cooperman Medical Arts Pavilion. The Boca Raton Regional Hospital is part of Baptist Health South Florida, an organization passionate about compassion and commitment to the health of the region. Building upon a three-decade partnership with Baptist Health South Florida, NELSON Worldwide built and designed a space that raises the standard of architecture on campus, extending a warm welcome to visitors and employees alike.
The new Medical Arts Pavilion addresses a spectrum of healthcare needs with specialized clinics dedicated to orthopedics, urology, and colorectal care, offering cutting-edge, patient-centric care that keeps community well-being top-of-mind. This meticulously-designed facility spans three levels and encompasses an expansive 61,500 square feet, including a top-floor ambulatory surgical suite with five state-of-the-art operating rooms alongside 16 dedicated recovery bays.
Prioritizing the outdoors was a key focus within the building as well. In keeping with the overarching nature-inspired theme, two distinct balconies offer patients and staff members spaces to spend time outside. One balcony serves as a serene respite area dedicated to the well-being of the staff members, providing them with a tranquil environment to recharge, while the second is a versatile space that can be easily adapted for various functions and events, adding an element of flexibility to the building’s layout.
Notably, the 380-spot parking structure takes on a dual role, efficiently accommodating both the building’s staff, physicians, patients, and families, while also serving as a solution for the overflow parking needs in the area. This includes the added convenience of valet parking provisions, seamlessly extending its utility to the nearby emergency department situated directly across the street. Architectural enhancements have been incorporated into the five-level garage, including metal fins and screens alongside curated landscaping elements, creating architectural intrigue. The stairwells themselves are glazed and illuminate during nighttime hours, ensuring heightened security while adding an element of aesthetic allure.
