In The Community
Serving the South Florida community since 1960, Camillus House is a non-profit organization that provides a full continuum of services that includes food, shelter, housing, rehabilitative treatment, and health care to men, women and children who are poor and homeless.
Founded in 1984, Camillus Health Concern, Inc. (CHC) has been a leader in providing primary health care services to persons who are homeless or have low income in Miami-Dade County. Opened in June of 1998, the state-of-the art health center offers persons who are homeless the opportunity to receive quality care in a professional and comfortable setting. Our residents rotate at CHC in their 3rd year under the supervision of Dr. Jim Torres (Med-Peds, USF- Tampa).
The Center for Haitian Studies (CHS) is a Florida non-profit corporation and community center that provides health and social services to families living in the Little Haiti/Little River and North Miami Dade areas of Miami-Dade County. CHS provides a wide range of services including health education, research, primary health care, obstetrical and gynecological care, pediatric care and mental health care services. At this site, in addition to providing clinical care, our residents deliver a Pediatric Core Didactic Curriculum to rotating students one half day per week.
Pediatric Mobile Clinic
The Pediatric Mobile Clinic delivers health care to under-privileged children throughout Miami-Dade County. It maintains a regular schedule allowing for continuity. Resident participation during the Community Pediatrics experience provides exposure to health related problems and situations not usually encountered at the medical center.
