Where the sci­ence of heal­ing meets the art of car­ing

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - On The Scene -

On the evening of Novem­ber 6, more than 1,000 sup­port­ers of Boca Ra­ton Com­mu­nity Hospi­tal cel­e­brated the grand open­ing of the Har­vey & Phyl­lis San­dler Pavil­ion, the new home of the Eu­gene M. & Chris­tine E. Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute.

“The San­dler Pavil­ion is a mag­nif­i­cent fa­cil­ity - its soar­ing spa­ces and nat­u­ral light are awe-in­spir­ing, yet at the same time, invit­ing and com­fort­ing,” said Jan Savar­ick, se­nior vice pres­i­dent and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Boca Ra­ton Com­mu­nity Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion. “As phys­i­cally im­pres­sive as the build­ing is, how­ever, the care that is ren­dered within, at the Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute, is truly re­mark­able. It is trans­form­ing the face of can­cer care in South Florida.”

The 98,000-square-foot San­dler Pavil­ion houses the out­pa­tient ser­vices of the Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute, the Hospi­tal’s new state-of-the-art Imag­ing Cen­ter and the Eu­gene M. & Chris­tine E. Clin­i­cal Re­search Cen­ter.

While tra­di­tional can­cer care re­quires pa­tients to travel from physi­cian to physi­cian and man­age their own sched­ul­ing, the Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute cen­tral­izes ser­vices at the San­dler Pavil­ion. This type of treat­ment, called mul­ti­modal­ity care, brings the en­tire team to each pa­tient in one lo­ca­tion. Mul­ti­modal­ity clin­ics, co­or­di­nated care and ac­cess to clin­i­cal re­search are the hall­marks of the na­tion’s top can­cer cen­ters.

“The Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute and the San­dler Pavil­ion will make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of thou­sands of peo­ple; the re­search un­der­way will touch hun­dreds of thou­sands more. It was the phil­an­thropic spirit of our com­mu­nity, led by Chris­tine Lynn and Har­vey and Phyl­lis San­dler, that made the vi­sion a re­al­ity,” added Savar­ick.

“We are so for­tu­nate to have a first class Can­cer In­sti­tute with some of the best physi­cians and health care pro­fes­sion­als in the coun­try right here in our own com­mu­nity, “ said Chris­tine Lynn. “I am very proud of the won­der­ful, car­ing work that takes place at the Lynn Can­cer In­sti­tute.”
