LEVITETZ FAMILY FOUNDATION PROVIDES LEAD GIFT FOR NEW CANCER PROGRAM AT THE EUGENE M. AND CHRISTINE E. LYNN CANCER INSTITUTE

November 26, 2019 – Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the Charles Levitetz Advanced Symptom Support & Individualized Care Program (CLASSIC) at the Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute (LCI) at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. This program was made possible through a very generous lead gift from the Levitetz Family Foundation. 
 
CLASSIC will provide interdisciplinary and team-driven care, focused on patient-centered outcomes such as quality of life, symptom burden, emotional well-being and caregiver needs. This is a relatively new medical subspecialty focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family.
 
This will be achieved by combining:
TIME to devote to intensive family meetings and patient/family counseling
SKILLED COMMUNICATION on what to expect in the future in order to ensure that care is matched to the goals and priorities of the patient and the family
EXPERT SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT for both physical and emotional distress
COORDINATION and COMMUNICATION of care plans among all providers and across settings
 
LCI and Boca Raton Regional Hospital are certain that the CLASSIC program will improve the quality of life for our patients who are enduring some of the most difficult trials of their lives, and this would not have been possible without the generous support of the Levitetz Family Foundation.
