BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Baptist Health, which runs Boca Raton Regional Hospital, and several others throughout the region — including Bethesda East and West in Boynton Beach — tells BocaNewsNow.com that there ARE patients in the “system” receiving treatment for COVID-19.
From Michael Maucker who is marketing and communitions manager for Boca Raton Regional Hospital — run by Baptist:
“Like many health care systems, we are seeing an increase in the number of cases that meet the Florida Department of Health’s criteria for testing for COVID-19. We’ve seen the number of confirmed cases in Florida continue to grow daily, and we have had some positive cases throughout our system. We are following the CDC’s guidance in caring for these patients. Some patients are able to self-quarantine, and others may need additional care, according to their condition. Due to patient privacy laws, we are unable to comment on any specific case.”
Maucker could not say whether or not patients are being treated at Boca Raton Regional Hospital or Baptist’s other locations.
