The Kriegers Share Their Time, Talent, and Resources
"People don't usually think about the Hospital until they need it, or a loved one needs the care of a hospital. If everyone does what they can to keep our Hospital strong, everyone benefits," Rosemary Krieger says. She and her husband, Ben, have been doing what they can to keep the Hospital strong, including giving to the Hospital for the last 15 years.
But their service doesn't stop there. The Kriegers are ambassadors of good will throughout Boca Raton, actively serving as members of numerous nonprofits that help the community and those in need. The Kriegers have received many honors and awards, such as the 2012 Friends of the Seminary Award, the 2011 March of Dimes Award, and the 2009 Opal Award from the Boca Raton Rotary.
They are tireless in their efforts to support their parish, St. Jude's, and Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse, where in recent years they have dedicated two rooms at the shelter for women and children. Rosemary was recently recognized as a Portrait of a Woman Honoree in 2013 by Quantum House, and during her career was honored as the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce's Person of the Year. These recognitions, and many others, demonstrate how much Rosemary and Ben believe in giving back to the community.
The Kriegers feel Boca Raton Regional Hospital is superior today because members of the community give what they can to ensure the Hospital is successful. They admire the Hospital's leadership team for the guidance they have brought to what they refer to as "our Hospital." Rosemary and Ben hope their planned gift commitment to Boca Raton Regional Hospital will encourage others to give what they can to make a difference.
"I want our Hospital to be there for us when we need it most, both for Ben and me, and for our family," Rosemary says. "We have used the Hospital through the years and we are always thankful for its excellence." The Kriegers want to see the Hospital continue to move forward and remain strong in the future.

To achieve these goals, community support has been invaluable. As a not-for-profit health care facility,the Hospital has been fortunate from its beginning to serve an extremely generous community.
