The Good News Care Center in Florida City Celebrates its 25th Anniversary on October 9th, 2021, with a fundraising gala that was attended by doctors, government leaders, and patients of the center took place at the Grand Salon Ballroom at Kendall Palms Country Club.
The Good News Care Center provides free health services for adults most in need like general checkups, mammograms, internal medicine, specialized care for women, diabetes tests and classes to manage the condition, nutrition counseling, and dermatology services. The clinic can
provide all these services through partnerships with Baptist Hospital and Baptist Health South Florida, donations, and volunteers.
The clinic opened its door to the public on October 3, 1996. Some of those patients are now or have been volunteers and many others have professed faith in Christ after being treated at the center.
“We wanted to share the testimony of what God has been doing through the clinic over the past 25 years,” said Lizbeth Salcedo, event organizer and former patient of Good News Care Center.
“After attempting to establish the clinic in the Redlands and another community in Miami-Dade County, our planning team received a hearty welcome in Florida City, Florida,” said Daily. Florida City Mayor Otis T. Wallace congratulated the center’s staff and volunteers on providing
such a vital service to the community. “I am very grateful to have had he clinic in the community for the past twenty-five years and I can’t understand why another community would refuse something like this,” said Wallace.
The clinic also received a proclamation from Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine-Cava. “As mayor and on behalf of the Board of County Commissioners and the residents of Miami-Dade County, I take great pleasure in wishing you the very best on the special occasion of your 25th
anniversary,” she said.
