On December 8, 2013, LFF proudly joined Miami Jewish Health Systems in paying tribute to Arlyn and Stephen H. Cypen as this year’s FOUNDERS Gala Honorees, for their lifetime of dedication, love and generosity to the South Florida Community, and especially to the Miami Jewish Health Systems. The event took place at Turnberry Isle Miami. Founded in 1940 as a 23-bed nursing home, Miami Jewish Health Systems treats over 25,000 residents and patients annually. Most live in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, however, individuals from across the country and around the world visit the center.

Miami Jewish Health Systems is considered the largest and most innovative provider of healthcare for seniors in the southeast. Thanks to the Cypen family’s leadership, Miami Jewish Health Systems has grown in size and acclaim from a small retirement community into a world-class, comprehensive care facility. We congratulate our longtime friends in celebrating a lifetime of dedication to this amazing organization, and thank you for all you do.
