2nd Annual Doctors Hospital Ball

Doctors Hospital's Mad for Mod BallSaturday, May 18, 7pm - Arena at Florida International University, 11200 S.W. 8th Street, Miami

Doctors Hospital 2nd annual “Mad for Mod Ball”, benefiting Doctors Hospital Foundation and the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, transported us back to the style of the 60’s, with lava lamps, GoGo dancers and whoopie pies!

The ball was chaired by Ilien and Keith Hechtman, M.D., with co-chairs Patricia and Carlos Garcia, Esq., and Abby and Jose Portuondo, M.D. The evening started with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner and dancing with Manny & Lory Castro’s Dance Town Miami Untouchables, of “America’s Got Talent”. The evening featured the silent and the live auction with exciting items like a week on The World Residences at Sea ship, a makeover from TLC’s “What Not To Wear” hair stylist Ted Gibson, a princess package complete with a Rene Ruiz gift certificate, jewelry from Neiman Marcus, a four night stay at the Azul Beach Hotel in Mexico and more.

The new, larger ICU will be a state-of-the-art space with the most sophisticated equipment. Each room will have 24-hour off-site electronic monitoring through the eICU LifeGuard program. With the renovation, physicians and staff will have the tools they need to continue to provide the highest-quality care to the most critically ill patients.
