Cleveland Clinic, Baptist Health finalists to partner with Florida hospital

Boca Raton (Fla.) Regional Hospital pared down the list of potential affiliates to two health systems: Cleveland Clinic and Coral Gables-based Baptist Health South Florida, the 400-bed hospital announced May 11.

Boca Raton Regional previously narrowed down the list of potential affiliates from 12 to five in March.

"Each of the five healthcare systems that we selected to explore are impressive organizations that presented exciting and robust proposals," said Jerry Fedele, president and CEO of Boca Raton Regional Hospital. "While each brought interesting and innovative ideas to the table, in the final analysis we believe the two chosen presented offerings that were best suited to meet the goals and objectives the Board established for the partnership."

Mr. Fedele agreed to postpone his retirement as the hospital's chief executive for one year while officials select a partner organization. Officials expect to issue a final decision this summer.

The 400-bed hospital announced its intent to select a partner in June 2017.
