Remembering Henry Livingston Wright, M.D.
Dr. "Hank" Wright left an indelible mark on the Boca Grande community and the Boca Grande Health Clinic. No one single person, possibly other than Louise Dupont Crowninshield, the Clinic's founder, has had as great an impact. We must thank Bayard Sharp for bringing Hank to Boca Grande. Inevitably, everyone who regularly visits the island and knew Hank had a story to tell about him. His personality and his wit were captivating. He cared for people, particularly his patients, but in truth he always had a kind word for everyone he spoke with. Hank loved humanity. While he was the Clinic doctor, he always put others first. It was never about Hank. His values and his priorities about caring for people helped to shape the culture and the values of the Clinic, and those who work at the Clinic and on the Clinic and Foundation boards felt his presence every single day. We all admired his zest for life, the twinkle in his eyes, and the smile on his face which was often the prelude to yet another interesting and often humorous story he could hardly wait to tell, usually about the Clinic or fishing or golf. He had a sweet tooth, and right up until the end, on his daily visits to the Clinic 'to check up on things', he always knew where he could find the candy jar. He was one of those rare human beings who just got better with age. How lucky we all were to have had such a wonderful presence in our lives. Hank's legacy will live on, particularly through the Clinic amd his friends in Boca Grande. Hank was the true Favorite Son of Boca Grande, and we will all miss him very much!

AAAHC Accreditation... In January 2015 the Boca Grande Health Clinic was designated "accredited" by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc., for the first time. After intense preparation and rigorous certification process, the Clinic earned this independent national institution's accreditation. No primary care groups of our size have achieved this recognition in Florida. Our patients now can take comfort in the assurance that the Boca Grande Health Clinic meets the AAAHC's high standards of practice.
