Fort Lauderdale, Florida — Leaders from Broward Health and the Broward Health Foundation joined Rita Case on Wednesday, February 15 to celebrate the naming of the Rita & Rick Case Echo Lab at Broward Health Medical Center. The lab features the latest echocardiography technology that creates images of the heart, blood vessels and blood flow levels that doctors use to assess heart function.


Naming rights for the lab were secured following a $50,000 donation by Case at the 2022 Broward Health Ball, which raised almost $1,000,000 for cardiac care and other services across Broward Health.


“We are honored to be able to support Broward Health Medical Center in continuing to provide custom cardiac care for our community,” said Rita Case, CEO of Rick Case Automotive. “The doctors, nurses and caregivers at Broward Health are heroes, and we are humbled to support their efforts in saving lives each and every day.”

“We are very appreciative of Rita’s donation and her commitment to Broward Health,” said Shane Strum, President & CEO of Broward Health. “Donations like Rita’s enable Broward Health to invest in high-quality healthcare, technology and programming, ultimately providing exceptional cardiac care to our community.”


More naming opportunities will be available during the live appeal at this year’s Mohsin and Fauzia Jaffer Foundation Broward Health Ball, presented by Amazon. The 10th Annual Ball begins at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 20 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and benefits programs and services at Broward Health hospitals. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and a silent and live auction.



“We thank Rita for her generous gift, because a gift today changes a life tomorrow,” Broward Health Foundation President Scott Ford said. “We hope others will join her in making gifts that help us continue to shape the present and positively impact the future of healthcare in our community.”
