Baptist Health, Wolfson Children’s Hospital celebrate donors

With its five floors of dedicated intensive care for the region’s children, the Borowy Family Children’s Critical Care Tower was officially opened, April 4. The following evening, the patrons opening welcomed guests from across the region, as the area’s top donors and their families were present to raise a toast to progress, innovation and robust support.

The top brass of Baptist Health and Wolfson Children’s Hospital brought guests together to enjoy an evening of education, camaraderie and celebration; one that illustrated recognition and deep appreciation for aiding the hospital system as it accomplished its goals. Along with the show of gratitude for the Borowy Family’s lead gift, other donors and benefactors were also hailed for their generosity. Thom Borowy shared a touching story about his children’s goal to double his original gift, “…it was the proudest moment of my life,” he said, as he held back tears while looking out over the crowd. Knowing his children were giving from their own inheritance to impact the quality of health care of complete strangers was overwhelming for the father, grandfather and accomplished businessman.

Following building tours and remarks by hospital leadership, a celebratory toast followed; the evening came to a close as guests were treated to “Reflections of Hope,” a visual experience on the exterior of the new tower, designed by Jacksonville-based content production company, Castano Group.
