Giving Thanks

From our CEO, Francis Afram-Gyening

There is no shadow of a doubt that this year has been an extraordinary year.    It has been difficult coping with the ever-changing environment, the economic downtown, the racial tension, the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected nearly 60 million people and resulted in 1.5 million deaths worldwide, and the resulting restrictions on seeing family and friends.

But through all this difficulty, I watched in awe as I saw my co-workers persevere.   I saw them conquer the long dispensary wait times, pivot to telehealth serving patients who were too afraid to physically come to the clinic, and be leaders in the healthcare community as one of the first centers to establish COVID-19 testing in Miami Dade County.

Therefore, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I express a deep gratitude for their resilience and determination they bring to Camillus Health Center—every single day.  I am inspired by their dedication and hospitality to the patients we serve and am honored to be their servant leader as we walk in the footsteps of The Hospitaller of St. John of God.

Wishing you a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving,
