Watch the Welcome Back to the Island 2022 Webinar

Welcome back to Boca Grande

The Grande Rounds health lecture series sponsored by the Boca Grande Health Clinic and the Boca Grande Health Clinic Foundation kicked off the season on November 16 with a recorded webinar to welcome everyone back for the season. Clinic CEO Mark Driscoll and Clinic Medical Director Raymond A. James, D.O, covered what to expect as our seasonal residents consider their return to an Island that’s more than a bit different than past years.

Here’s a quick summary of what’s included:

  • Boca Beacon’s Cheryl Schum Hopkins provided imagery and commentary on Hurricane Ian’s impact on the Island and our ongoing recovery efforts.
  • Mark provided a Clinic Staff update: We have three primary care physicians board-certified in emergency medicine, family practice and internal medicine. We’ve expanded our nursing staff to three RNs, an LPN and two medical assistants. A radiologic technologist is a new addition to our clinical team as we resume medical imaging services at the Clinic. That’s a tribute to a great culture and the potential of our team. We’ve come a long way from an Island with a weekly visit from a mainland doctor.
  • Dr. Bret Kueber, M.D. (who joined the Clinic early 2022) and Dr. Emily Haly, M.D. (the Clinic’s newest physician) shared thoughts on their experiences to date working at the Clinic.
  • Information about the Clinic’s flu and booster vaccination clinics was shared.
  • We previewed upcoming events.
  • Foundation Executive Director Cannon Wenzel provided an update on Foundation activities.

Grande Rounds events are free of charge as part of the Clinic’s and Foundation’s mission to educate the community. Please join us for these informative sessions, which are tentatively planned for January and February 2023. Event information, including program recordings, are available on the Events page.
