Four details:

1. Boca Raton Regional Hospital is joining Baptist Health South Florida July 1. The organizations signed a formal agreement in late May.

2. Earlier this year, Boca Regional announced a $250 million expansion plan that would include a new patient tower and renovations to its existing tower.
