IMC Health Medical Centers Wins Humanitarian Organization of the Year Award for Charitable Efforts During the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We are thrilled to announce that IMC Health Medical Centers has been named Humanitarian Organization of the Year 2020 as part of the 3rd Annual Hispanic Heritage Entrepreneur Awards presented by Buena Vida Media and the Latin American Business Association (LABA).
The award is in recognition of the philanthropic efforts IMC Health carried out on behalf of its members and the South Florida community during COVID-19.
“As one of the leading medical centers in South Florida with mostly elderly, high-risk patients, we are painstakingly aware of the repercussions the coronavirus has had on not only our patients but the community as a whole,” said IMC Health CEO Bill Lamoreaux. “That is why we felt the responsibility to carry out a series of initiatives to lend relief to our members and the local community.”
At the peak of the stay-at-home phase of the pandemic, IMC Health made sure its members were well cared for -- not only medically, but also nutritionally and mentally. The company delivered more than 10,000 hot and fresh meals, distributed masks and created a mental health helpline called TeleAmigos, designed to lend a caring ear to patients during the quarantine.
“When we saw the positive impact our initiatives were having on our patients and the hardship South Florida citizens were experiencing as infection and unemployment rates skyrocketed, we decided it was time to extend our helping hand to the community,” said IMC Vice President of Finance Carolina Veira, who leads the community initiative that has been distributing thousands of free care packages to South Florida families.
Veira, who also serves as Hub Leader for Hispanic Star, organized the distribution of the care packages with the help of Hispanic Star and large donations from the consumer goods giant P&G. Drive-thru events were held throughout South Florida. In addition, the team donated packages directly to other community organizations to serve the people they aid.
“We would like to thank Buena Vida Media and LABA for honoring us with this title,” said Lamoreaux. “We are proud to have played a significant role in lending relief to our members and thousands of South Floridians during the most challenging crisis in our lifetime.”
