Three South Florida Cities Recognize IMC Health for Outstanding Service to its Members and the Community During the COVID-19 Pandemic

MIAMI, FL - December 17, 2020 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - The Town of Miami Lakes, City of Hialeah and City of Doral recently presented IMC Health Medical Centers with Certificates of Recognition for exceptional care and the philanthropic efforts the medical group has carried out in light of COVID-19 for its members and the community.

Town of Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid and newly elected Vice-Mayor Luis Collazo personally presented IMC Health with the Certificate of Recognition from the Town of Miami Lakes during a ceremony at the IMC's Miami Lakes location, which has been newly renovated to fit several specialty services for its members. During the event, Mayor Cid and his accompanying officials had the opportunity to tour the state-of-the-art facility and learn more about how the medical group has helped its members and the community get through the pandemic.

"It's an honor to have not just a responsible steward of 5-star healthcare in our city but also a medical group really interested in giving back to the community," said Town of Miami Lakes Vice-Mayor Luis Collazo. "It's amazing how quickly IMC health was able to adapt to the changing needs of its members and the community amidst the pandemic and facilitate access to quality care and social services in their homes and at the centers."

Since the start of the pandemic, the medical group has been delivering daily hot and fresh meals, distributing masks, and managing a mental health helpline designed to lend a caring ear to its lonely elderly members keeping safe in their homes. Meanwhile, IMC has also helped the community heal by carrying out a series of drive-thru distribution events throughout South Florida, where anyone in need could pick up packages filled with essential necessities like hygiene and cleaning products donated to the medical group by consumer goods giant P&G.

The City of Hialeah and City of Doral also presented IMC Health with the recognition award last month at its biggest distribution event, 'Juntos Miami Day,' during the week of 'Give Miami Day.' This time, the medical group teamed up with even more local businesses to distribute thousands of products to local non-profit organizations to prepare them to serve the communities they aid.

"We feel honored to have received these recognitions from the cities we serve," said IMC Health CEO Bill Lamoreaux. "As one of the leading medical centers in South Florida with mostly elderly, high-risk patients, we have been painstakingly aware of the repercussions the coronavirus has had on not only our members but the community as a whole, so we feel that it was our responsibility to carry out these initiatives to lend relief to our members and the South Florida community."
