Meet Our Staff

The South Miami Children's Clinic was developed to provide high quality medical care to uninsured children living in South Miami. We believe that improving access to healthcare and health education will help these children to build healthier minds and bodies. The doors of the clinic were officially opened March 22, 2007. The generous financial contributions of Jim and Susan Carr, the Lennar Foundation and United Healthcare, helped to make the clinic a reality. The support of South Miami Hospital and Baptist Health as well as physician volunteers from within the system has also been paramount to the success of the clinic. As we move forward, our hope is to create a permanent medical home for all qualified children living in the area and to help them reach their full potential.
