Marilyn and Stanley Barry: Giving to a Cause You Believe In
For more than 30 years, Marilyn and Stanley Barry have had a wonderful life in Boca Raton. Having worked in property management and as investor developers in New York City, the Barrys were looking for more of a charming, uncrowded atmosphere for their life in Florida. The Boca area offered just what they wanted: restaurants, entertainment, natural beauty, and a local hospital. Today, both the community and the hospital have grown to an extent that they could have never imagined all those years ago.
The continued growth of Boca Raton Regional Hospital offered Marilyn and Stan benefits that included the peace of mind in knowing that they no longer have to travel back to New York to receive the very best medical care. "This is where we live and we are so fortunate to have top quality physicians and a state-of-the-art hospital right here in our community," says Marilyn.
As Chair of Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation, Stan has played a very vital role in the growth and development of the Hospital. Marilyn and Stan both believe it is important to take an active and visible part in supporting the Hospital. "We are happy to demonstrate our belief and commitment," Stan says, "and to encourage others to step forward and do the same. Boca Regional is vital to the quality of life we all enjoy and we want others to feel as strongly about it as we do."
Marilyn and Stan's philanthropic spirit is extraordinary. They are active supporters of numerous other organizations outside of the Hospital, including the University of Miami, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ruth and Normal Rales Jewish Family Services of South Palm Beach County, Donna Klein Jewish Academy, Temple Beth El, and Ronald McDonald House (Oak Brook, Illinois).
At Boca Raton Regional Hospital, the Barrys' extraordinary generosity is evident in the gifted Marilyn & Stanley Barry Center for Cerebrovascular Disease & Stroke at the Marcus Neuroscience Institute. More recently, they made another magnificent donation to the Hospital's campaign that will help modernize and renovate the Hospital campus, enhance and add capacity for key services and new technologies, and improve the experience for patients and their families, physicians, staff, and visitors.
Their gift will provide a much-needed expansion and improvement to the surgical area—going from 16 operating suites to 20, each armed with the latest in surgical technologies and efficiencies.
Making a difference is part of the Barrys' commitment to their community. "It's important to give back if you can," says Stan, "to pay it forward and make an investment in the community. This is our home—let's make it the best it can be."
