ABOUT our foundation

One Community | One Cause | One Exceptional Standard Of Care

Support a
70-year Legacy
of Health Care Excellence

Opening its doors in 1947, the Boca Grande Health Clinic was organized by members of the community. These visionary residents created it to provide convenient, high-quality, personalized health care to island residents and guests. Of course, the need for these services is even greater today.

Thus, the Clinic’s story began with generous community support. Over the decades, many individuals have contributed their time and resources to ensure that the Clinic was, and remains, a reality for the community. In return, the Clinic has supported the community’s well-being as the only primary health care provider on the island.



The Boca Grande Health Clinic continues to thrive and contribute to the community’s wellbeing thanks to the generous support of the Boca Grande Health Clinic Foundation. As a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation, the Foundation serves as a lifeline to the Clinic, ensuring that a high standard of health care services is conveniently available on the island. Now, you can be part of protecting and building upon this legacy to create even greater health care opportunities for current and future generations.
