CAC-Florida Medical Centers opened its doors to Miami-Dade County's Hispanic population in 1964 under the name Clínica Asociación Cubana. CAC-Florida Medical Centers holds the distinction of being Florida's first managed care facility granted a license to operate as a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) as a result of the Congressional HMO Act of 1973. Today, the CAC brand is recognized throughout South and Central Florida for its commitment to members of the communities it serves and the provision of quality and readily accessible health care.
The centers operate in a staff-model setting whereby routine medical and ancillary health care services are provided “under one roof” and orchestrated by primary care physicians. This type of health care delivery is familiar to many CAC patients of Hispanic origin who grew up and around the staff model setting in their native countries before migrating to South Florida. Today, CAC-Florida Medical Centers operates thirteen, full-service, multi-specialty medical centers in Miami-Dade County and Orlando to serve a culturally-diverse, patient base of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
