A summer ‘thank you’

Recently the Boca Grande community said goodbye to Pete Nicholas. In the words of Charles Dickens, “He was as good a friend as the old town ever had.” He is missed by all who knew him and the community issues that benefited from his generosity and vision. From a physician’s point of view, Peter was a pleasure to know. Not only was he a leader in the science of medical engineering, but also he really liked medicine. Not many board members have found it pleasurable to show up in the Clinic, have a cup of mediocre coffee (doctors love free mediocre coffee), and ask what is new or interesting. He would challenge me with “What can we do better for the patients?” He would ask us to “put our thinking caps on.”

Boca Grande’s secrets to longevity

April 1, 2022
As part of our year-long celebration of the Boca Grande Health Clinic’s 75th anniversary, the Clinic is pleased to launch a short series of web videos that capture some of the “secrets” to having a long, productive life – told by some of the Island’s elders. Human beings are living longer than ever before … into their 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond. Since the start of the 20th century, we have increased life expectancy in the United States from just 49 in 1900 to 79 today.
