Hope has arrived, and we are finally headed in the right direction. As we are able to vaccinate more and more people, I truly believe that we will get through this difficult time in the near future.
The pandemic has pushed our team at CHI to reexamine our services and healthcare delivery on a daily basis. I continue to be amazed and so proud of the work that Community Health of South Florida, Inc. is doing. I also continue to hear wonderful compliments from community leaders and patients who have been the recipient of our COVID-19 vaccination and testing efforts.
I am encouraged by the community support for our programs and services.
Many have purchased bricks to line the entryway of the new Children’s Crisis Center. Our staff has also raised more than $62,000 in donations, a testament to their own commitment to the cause!
Meanwhile, our construction on the new Key West Health Center is going smoothly. We expect to open our doors at CHI’s southernmost health center by this summer. In addition, we continue to make progress on the construction of the new Key Largo Health Center and newly renovated Coconut Grove Health Center. This is all part of our goal to make health care more accessible to everyone in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
This May, we also have several important dates to celebrate, such as National Nurses Week. Never before has their contribution been so critical!
Please take the time to thank our nurses for their hard work, love, and devotion to our patients. It’s also Mother’s Day and Women’s Health Month. We will be hosting a special webinar focused on women’s body image, nutrition, and more. Follow us on our social media accounts for more information.
