Boynton Beach, FL
The Caridad Center is one of the largest free health care centers in the nation. It provides free medical and dental services for both children and adults in southeastern Florida. The Center is both a primary health care and ambulatory care center, providing a variety of medical, surgical, dental, and vision services for low-income patients.
Each year, the Caridad Center provides some 24,000 patient visits, including specialized ambulatory care including urology, gynecology, gastroenterology, and orthopedic care. The hope is to eventually break the cycle of poverty for those they serve in South Florida.
“Caridad is a place where miracles happen every day! You feel the compassion when you enter the clinic. They use professional volunteers to serve the most vulnerable working poor and their families in Palm Beach County. Without Caridad, they would not be able to access life-saving medical, dental, vision, and mental health care.”
