    Elizabeth Justen and Steven Harvey Appointed to South Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners

    Elizabeth Justen and Steven Harvey were appointed this month by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to the Board of Commissioners of the South Broward Hospital District, which oversees all actions of the Memorial Healthcare System. Justen and Harvey are serving alongside Chairman Douglas A. Harrison, Vice Chair Dr. Luis E. Orta, and Commissioners Jose Basulto, Brad Friedman and Laura Raybin Miller. Justen is also serving as secretary/treasurer on the board. Both of these appointments are for a four-year term.

    Justen, a Hollywood resident, is the assistant executive director of the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County, a nonprofit organization which funds community programs and initiatives. She is also the key account manager at OFB Marketing and a principal at The Marketing Experience.

    “Thank you to the Memorial Healthcare System for the warm welcome. I am honored to be appointed by Governor DeSantis to serve alongside my fellow Commissioners. It is my privilege to be associated with this excellent South Florida landmark,” Justen said. “I look forward to helping Memorial Healthcare System and the community.”

    Harvey, of Cooper City, is the assistant dean of operations and administration at Nova Southeastern University, where he previously earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration.

    “It is my honor and privilege to serve on the South Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners,” Harvey said. “As a resident of the district for nearly 50 years and a diabetic, I look forward to giving back to a healthcare system that has provided high-quality care to me and my loved ones.”

  • Danielle Cardiac Patient

    Expertise for Danielle’s Irregular Heartbeat

    For a scary five minutes, Danielle felt dizzy and sweaty as her heart rate raced above 200 beats a minute on her smartwatch. “It felt like someone was sitting on my chest,” she said.

    I just thought I was out of shape, she adds. But when her symptoms, including shortness of breath, continued she turned to Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute.

    Using data from her watch and additional tests, John Cogan, MD, medical director, Adult Cardiac Electrophysiology, diagnosed Danielle’s arrhythmia as supraventricular tachycardia and performed a cardiac ablation to repair it.

    “It’s an electrical short circuit of the heart.” Dr. Cogan said. “The heart gets stuck in a loop going superfast. We find it, burn it and get rid of it.”

    “It was a great experience from start to finish,” Danielle said. “Now, I know I’ll be here to take care of my son.”

    Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute electrophysiologists are among the most experienced experts in the region, safely treating hundreds of heart rhythm conditions each year.

  • Frank DiMino Campus

    “Frank DiMino Campus” Unveiled at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center

    Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center, a medical home close to home for Palm Beach county children with specialized and/or acute medical needs, is now located on the “Frank DiMino Campus” in Wellington. The designation was added to signage on the building, near the entrance, and in its lobby to recognize Mr. DiMino, a 93-year-old philanthropist.

    The Wellington resident made a significant contribution to the nonprofit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation, which chose the campus naming as a way to honor the donor. The gift was one of the largest in the foundation’s history.

    “This will help us improve access to and delivery of high-quality pediatric care for children and families in South Florida,” said Aurelio Fernandez, III, the CEO of Memorial Healthcare System, the specialty center’s parent organization. “So, this generous donation goes a long way toward keeping our kids safe.”

    Mr. DiMino recently visited the specialty center and was met by staff carrying signs expressing appreciation. He connected with Fernandez and other Memorial leaders that included Nina Beauchesne, Caitlin Stella, and Kevin Janser. “I’m honored to support such an outstanding organization that does so much for the health and well-being of children and families in South Florida,” said Mr. DiMino.

    The donation was made to the foundation’s “Catch the Love” capital campaign, which will help underwrite the cost to expand Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood. The initiative will double the size of the stand-alone facility, to 320,000 sq. ft. within an eight-story building. “It’s a $150 million construction project, with $50 million, or a third of it, being raised through philanthropy. This donation will help underwrite the additional four stories that will be added to the existing structure,” said Fernandez.

    The expansion will provide ‘Joe D.’ the additional space it needs for specialized cardiac, intensive care, and medical surgical capabilities. It will also increase access to leading-edge pediatric care and treatments, including those for cancer, orthopedic, neurology, and neonatal patients. Additional services will also be extended into the community and support provided to families during their most challenging times.

    The donation is Mr. DiMino’s second significant contribution to the children’s hospital foundation. A previous gift, through his own family foundation in 2018, resulted in the DiMino name being added to the emergency department at the children’s hospital.

    “We’re just so happy to now have something he can drive by, in his community, with his name on it,” said Stella, CEO of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, referring to Mr. DiMino. “It’s a great legacy for him and a great gift for us, so we’re very thankful.”
