BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com can’t help but notice that both West Boca Medical Center and Delray Medical Center — all owed by Tenet Healthcare — have issued a grand total of zero news releases since the Coronavirus crisis started several days ago. In contrast. Boca Raton Regional Hospital — now run by Baptist Healthcare — has issued several updates, clearly efforting to keep the community calm while explaining that the public may see tents outside as facilities gear up for what could be a difficult period of time.
Why is Tenet being so quiet? Unclear. But a look at the website for West Boca Medical Center, compared to Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s website, reveals a total lack of awareness and community involvement. Tenet’s West Boca Medical Center is promoting itself and only itself.
By contrast, the Boca Raton Regional Hospital website is full of information and guidance for a concerned public.
We do know that both West Boca and Delray Medical are limiting visitor access. But while Baptist is promoting free TeleMedicine to those who fear they could be exposed — or have COVID-19 like symptoms — Tenet is apparently offering nothing — other than information about their new CEO’s last name.
We’ll update if Tenet starts to focus on the community and not itself.
