SFBJ Names Caridad Center "Nonprofit Business of the Year"

Posted by: Brian on Friday, April 26, 2013 at 12:00:00 am

 

At a time of great national debate on healthcare models, Caridad Center has been Palm Beach County community’s unique response to healthcare for the poor for more than 24 years. Its unique utilization of professional volunteers, clinical students, and community volunteers has forged an effective coalition for holistic care of care for the most vulnerable in our community – the working poor. Last year the patients themselves donated $89,211 program service fees to assist with their care. Physicians, dentists ophthalmologists and allied health professionals donated $2.5million in uncompensated care for 24,460 patient visits. Caridad removes barriers – cultural, linguistic, and monetary – that block access to care. And, it provides an intergenerational program – a place where retired physicians and dentists, active practitioners and professional students continue to come forward to provide for those in need.
