FoundCare Receives Wellness Award From Hispanic Chamber

FoundCare representatives Dr. Nayda Iglesias, Lilia Perez, Elizabeth Prol, Christopher Irizarry, Orquidea Acevedo, Robbin Rodriguez, Bertha Condes, Taylor Santiago and Luis Lopez celebrate FoundCare’s recognition by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

FoundCare Inc., a federally qualified healthcare center serving Palm Beach County residents, was recently awarded the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County’s Health & Wellness Award at the recent Triunfo Awards Gala. More than 250 local business leaders in the community came together at the Marriott in West Palm Beach to honor one another’s triumphs and commemorate another year in the chamber’s history.

“FoundCare has served Palm Beach County for 35 years, and, over the years, has developed a beautiful relationship with the local Hispanic community,” said Yolette Bonnet, CEO of FoundCare. “We are humbled that the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has recognized us for our work in the Hispanic community and are grateful recipients of the Health and Wellness Award.”

To meet its mission of fulfilling unmet healthcare and social service needs of individuals and families, FoundCare, located in West Palm Beach, offers pediatric and adult primary care, chronic disease management, behavioral health services, dentistry, laboratory work and X-rays, with an on-site pharmacy — all in one location.

“Our goal is to provide high-quality healthcare to all of those in need, including those within the Hispanic community,” Bonnet said. “We will continue to increase access to healthcare by offering compassionate care in a culturally sensitive manner, and with employees who reflect the community we serve.”

In addition to recognizing key members with awards to the community, the Hispanic Chamber gives back to the community through this event. “This was a very important evening because a portion of the proceeds will benefit scholarships through the Hispanic Community Fund of Palm Beach County,” Chamber CEO Maria Antuña said. “Each year the scholarships awarded to local high school seniors have continued to make a difference in the lives of local students to support them with college expenses. In 22 years, the Hispanic Chamber has provided more than $156,000 in scholarships to students throughout Palm Beach County.”
