Physicians and staff at Premier Family Health & Wellness, an innovative family medicine practice located on State Road 7 in Wellington, know the joy of giving.
For the second consecutive year, physicians, staff and patients helped raised funds to brighten the holidays for students of the Indian Ridge School in West Palm Beach.
The Indian Ridge School offers academic programming for students, elementary through high school, who have been identified with emotional/behavioral problems.
In addition to academics, educators promote the social skills necessary for students to progress to post-secondary education, productive citizenship, employment and independent living.
“We chose to support the students of the Indian Ridge School because wanted to make certain that these children experienced the joy of Christmas. We wanted them to know that we believe in them and care about them,” said Elizabeth Lofaso, a provider at the practice.
On Dec. 20, following weeks of fundraising activities, Premier staff members visited the Indian Ridge School to personally present the gifts — T-shirts, toys and gift cards — to all 115 students and educators.
“It was gratifying to see the joy our visit brought to the students that day,” Lofaso said. “We are proud of the collective efforts of our team at Premier. It was our pleasure and privilege to support the extraordinary educators at Indian Ridge who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of their students.”
“We are very fortunate to have Premier Family Health & Wellness as part of our children’s lives,” said Stacey Oak, who works at Indian Ridge. “This not only brought smiles to their faces but will help teach them the importance of caring for others.”
From primary care to chronic disease management, Premier Family Health & Wellness provides a full continuum of care offering the convenience of an urgent care center, on-site diagnostic testing center and a Center for Healthy Aging all integrated through an electronic medical record system.
Premier patients receive the highest standard of care from staff that remains at the forefront of the latest research findings on health, wellness and aging. For more info., call (561) 798-3030.
