MIAMI, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Care Resource has received a $246,280 grant from Health Foundation of South Florida (HFSF) to fund the purchase of medical and pediatric equipment for the renovated and expanded Midtown Miami Health Center and Administrative Headquarters. HFSF’s investment will allow Care Resource to provide expanded and enhanced access to primary care and other support services to uninsured, underinsured, and underserved patients in Miami, reducing barriers to care.
Care Resource’s renovations will increase medical exam rooms from 10 to 24, and pediatric exam rooms from 3 to 5. HFSF’s support will outfit all 29 exam rooms with vital medical equipment, strengthening the health center’s ability to meet the unique health care needs of the most vulnerable in South Florida, who often have fragmented, uncoordinated, and discontinuous care. The renovated health center will integrate an array of comprehensive preventative and social services to address the holistic needs of children, adolescents, and adults, and will feature the Food for Life Network Food Pantry and Nutritional Center on the first floor. The health center is expected to open by mid-2021. To learn more about the Capital Fund visit capitalfund.careresource.org.
