President’s message

Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones. May the new year bring you happiness and good health! That’s not always the case for everyone. For some, it is a difficult time. Many hide depression and other significant problems, despite the holiday lights and festivities. I want you to know that your medical home is always here for you. Our comprehensive behavioral health department is integrated with primary care teams working together to chase away the holiday blues and keep you healthy. Don’t ignore the signs and symptoms. You’re not alone. Due to a high demand for mental health experts, Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI) has added a new telehealth service in Monroe County for behavioral health to make sure everyone gets the help they need.

The new year brings new growth for CHI. Starting January 7th, we will begin renovations on our Coconut Grove Center. The facelift will provide more space at the 3831 Grand Avenue, Miami, FL 33133 location. The new center will have a clean and modern design with a Caribbean-style exterior. There is a rendering below of the newly renovated site. During the year of construction, we will welcome our Coconut Grove patients to use our South Miami Health Center just a few miles down the road. The team from Coconut Grove will be based at South Miami to treat you. Transportation is available to those who need it.

We also recently finished painting the exterior of all our health centers. We want to make sure our facilities are welcoming.

Finally, I’m excited to announce on January 7, 2020 from 5pm-7pm we will host the Grand Re-Opening of our Marathon Health Center. The new facility is a beautiful health center for the patients in Monroe County. It is state of the art and offers comprehensive care. I encourage you to bring your families to the celebration. Everyone is invited. We will have local island food, drinks and entertainment.

Tis’ the season for celebration and at CHI we have so much to celebrate!
