Boca Raton Regional Hospital has received a federal grant to upgrade its security system, Commissioner Steven Abrams announced today.
The grant money will be used to modify its current dispatch and closed circuit television systems, creating a more secure environment, particularly, in the labor and delivery areas.
The $50,000 U.S. Department of Homeland Security grant was in conjunction with a new program titled “Urban Area for Security Initiatives.” The county partnered with numerous agencies including Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office and Broward County, to get the grant. No county match dollars are required.
Boca Raton Regional Hospital was founded by local donations and has grown to become a 400-bed acute care, not-for-profit hospital featuring state-of-the-art facilities with over 700 physicians, 2,000 staff members and 1,200 volunteers.
