Honoring My Father: Irving T. Boker

Richard Boker
Richard Boker and wife Rebecca gifted a private patient room on the fifth floor in memory of his father.

In memory of his father, Irving T. Boker, and in honor of the nurses at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center, Richard and Rebecca Boker have established the Irving T. Boker Memorial Fund to benefit Nursing Education.

During the last 14 months of his life, Mr. Boker was treated for a variety of conditions requiring hospitalization within a number of different units at MedStar Montgomery Medical Center. Though his floor and room number changed frequently, his son says one thing remained constant throughout each of his father's numerous and sometimes lengthy hospital visits - the first class, attentive and personalized care he received from the nurses of MedStar Montgomery Medical Center.

"My father could not speak highly enough about the nurses who cared for him during his many stays at the hospital. Their ability to attend to his medical care, while ensuring that he was as comfortable as possible, was both consistent and steadfast." - Richard Boker
