Bethesda Hospital East

A Message from the President


In light of the tremendous challenges facing healthcare today, Bethesda Health is committed to building a bright future for quality medical care in Palm Beach County. Bethesda’s new Center for Graduate Medical Education opened in July, and we are honored to welcome the first class of internal medicine physicians from Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine. These physicians will be working with our Medical Staff to gain valuable experience, honing clinical and caring skills that have been the hallmark of medical excellence at Bethesda Health since 1959.
Bethesda Health has had a longstanding tradition of providing medical education that started with our radiography program in 1968 and now includes the Bethesda College of Health Sciences for Registered Nurses; Residency programs for Pharmacy and Podiatry; and third year and fourth year medical students. Together with Bethesda’s Medical Staff, these programs will position Bethesda to have the highly trained physicians and healthcare professionals needed to serve our families and growing senior population.  
I invite you to join us on our journey to provide exceptional patient care for our community.

Roger L. Kirk, FACHE
