Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute Expands Services to Bethesda Hospital East in Boynton Beach

Boca Raton, FL – Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute at Boca  Raton Regional Hospital has expanded its life-saving cancer diagnosis and treatment services in Palm  Beach County to a new location at Bethesda Health City, part of Bethesda Hospital East. The facility is  located at 10301 Hagen Ranch Road in Boynton Beach. 

“We look forward to this partnership that will help us bring state-of-the-art comprehensive oncology care  closer to our patients and community,” says Nelson Lazo, CEO of Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda  Hospital West.  

Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital West are all part of Baptist  Health South Florida, the largest not-for-profit medical provider in the region. Baptist Health also  operates Miami Cancer Institute and is in the process of integrating their complementary services to give  patients increased and expedited access to expert care. 

Lynn Cancer Institute has one of the largest comprehensive oncology programs in Florida, offering top  medical and surgical experts as well as the latest in diagnostics and therapeutic cancer treatments. The  Institute, which receives about 150,000 patient visits yearly, takes a multidisciplinary approach to cancer  care and has access to groundbreaking research trials from nationally recognized programs. 

“When we work together, we can accomplish more,” says Louise Morrell, M.D., medical director of Lynn  Cancer Institute. “With every cancer diagnosis, our goal is to provide patients and their families with  personalized care driven by the latest molecular testing and state-of-the-art technology, while maintaining  an unsurpassed patient experience.” 

Bethesda Hospital East provides comprehensive services, including a nationally recognized orthopedic  total joint replacement program; cardiovascular care; vascular, endovascular and robotic surgery;  women’s and children’s services and also offers inpatient oncology services and an infusion center on its  campus in Boynton Beach, north of Boca Raton. The hospital offers imaging services at Bethesda Health  City, an outpatient center on Hagen Ranch Road between Bethesda Hospital East and Bethesda Hospital  West. Oncology services at this location will be identified as Lynn Cancer Institute at Bethesda – Radiation Oncology, under the direction of Michael Kasper, M.D., medical director of radiation oncology  at the Institute. 

In addition to its main location at Boca Regional, Lynn Cancer Institute already operates two satellite  facilities in Delray Beach — one on Military Trail and the other on Linton Boulevard. With increasing  cancer specialization and the need for the latest technology, the expansion to Bethesda Hospital will  greatly benefit patients. 

“In coordination with Miami Cancer Institute, our programs are really the anchors of cancer care from the  Keys to Palm Beach County,” Dr. Morrell says. “Our common goal is to ensure that every patient with  cancer, or at high risk, has access to the very best care available. Integration means widening our circle of  expertise and having support as we expand.”

About Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute 

The Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is one of the largest cancer centers in South Florida  and is accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the American College of Surgeons. The Lynn  Cancer Institute treats more than 4,000 patients each year in facilities such as the Harvey & Phyllis  Sandler Pavilion, the state-of-the-art cancer center. While traditional cancer treatment requires patients to  travel from physician to physician and manage their own scheduling, the Sandler Pavilion centralizes  services in one location. This simplifies the entire process for patients, from diagnosis and treatment, to  Wellness and Survivorship programs and allows patients to focus on one thing — recovery. 

More than 20 oncology physicians and a full complement of oncology professionals are on staff to serve  the patients at the Lynn Cancer Institute. Patients receive treatment and services from specialists in  genetics, surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology and imaging. In addition, staff  includes research nurses, who improve patient access to clinical trials and the most advanced forms of  treatment.
