The first CAC-Florida Medical Center opened its doors to Miami - Dade County's Hispanic population in 1964 under the name Clínica Asociación Cubana. CAC-Florida Medical Centers hold the distinction of being Florida's first managed care facilities 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 high quality, readily accessible health care.
The centers operate in a staff model setting whereby routine medical and ancillary health care services are provided in "One Place" and orchestrated by primary care physicians. This type of health care delivery is familiar to many CAC patients of Hispanic origin who grew up around the staff model setting in their native countries before migrating to South Florida. Today, CAC-Florida Medical Centers operates full-service, multi-specialty medical centers in Miami-Dade, Broward, Orlando and Tampa to serve a culturally diverse patient base of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
To help everyone achieve lifelong well-being by providing accessible, comprehensive and quality health care.
To establish CAC-Florida Medical Centers as the leading medical group practice in the communities we serve, distinguished by the quality of medical care we provide and our commitment to the health of our patients.
