I am proud of the herculean effort we all made to administer over 3000 COVID-19 vaccinations. I am amazed we somehow expanded to become a vaccination and a testing site for the entire island, as well as continued to provide regular patient care. We could not have provided such rapid response without the support of the Foundation and Donors. Thanks for your support. – DR. RAYMOND JAMES

I’m proud of us achieving the AAAC accreditation we all worked so hard to obtain. The COVID pandemic has required us to adjust our schedules to the ever-changing workplace landscape. This includes having to adjust schedules to accommodate the need for quarantine, social distancing, and the need to work from home. We all greatly appreciate the support received from our donors. Their contributions help to further our mission of excellent and personalized care. – NATALIE COLE

Being a part of the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine to not only the patients of the Boca Grande Health Clinic but to the entire Boca Grande Community, residents, and employees. Vaccinating over 3000 people makes me proud. It was a year of change, resilience, and compassion towards others. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our donors and supporters, without you it would not be possible to fulfill the clinic mission and provide care for the island community. – KELSEY CHAVARRIA

I would say I’m proud of my coworkers. We have the best staff. We all worked very hard to handle the Covid testing, the massive immunization clinics, and continued to provide quality care for our patients. – DANA PELLANT

From a Grateful Patient

Since I moved to Boca Grande in January 2018, I hope to never have to move again, and one of the major reasons (if not the most salient) is the Boca Grande Health Clinic. Even considering relocating seems out of the question, particularly as I, my friends and acquaintances, deal with the aging process.

The 75th Anniversary flag raising ceremony held in March 2022 was an opportunity to pay tribute to the legacy of healthcare on the island. We honored those who have come together over the years to support the Clinic and recognized the important work of today’s Clinic team.
