The heart & soul of caring will pass through your life for a minute and impact it for an eternity. Too often we underestimate a Smile, a kind word, a listening ear or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
The CMS CDO Program Office acknowledges that the success of Florida Community Health Centers would not have been possible without the efforts of their diligent health benefit coordinators.
