INDIANTOWN, FL- On Thursday, May 16, 2019, the Florida Community Health Centers, Inc. (FCHC) Board, Senior Leadership team and staff, along with the local community, will celebrate the expanding of the Indiantown Center.

This ribbon cutting ceremony has been a long-awaited event and the FCHC staff could not be more excited to unveil the new upgrades. This event will give members of the community a chance to tour the new wing, as well as hear a few words from the FCHC CEO Dr. Wilhelmina Lewis and state officials such as Senator Gayle Harrell. The expansion not only gives the center a makeover, but also will allow more patients to be seen, with the addition of eight new exam rooms.

The Indiantown Center first opened its doors in 1976 and was the second center to open under Florida Community Health Centers, Inc. Its purpose was to deliver health care services to migrants, farmworkers and rural poor persons, who did not have access to these services. The center has since grown and now provides a full spectrum of health care services to the entire Indiantown community, while still standing on its original mission. The expansion of the center, is not only a milestone for FCHC, but for the local community as well.

“We are honored to be able to expand our level of care to Indiantown. This community counts on us to give high-quality accessible health care and the expansion will enable us the opportunity to better serve our patients,” said Alfred Sanchez, Center Administrative Director.
