Founded in 1971, Clínica Las Mercedes is the leader and innovator in South Florida health care. Years of experience in the administration of hospitals, medical management facilities, and national health care programs came together to provide our community with a full range of medical facilities.

• The PCP simplifies and prioritizes appropriately so that behavior change is more actionable, both for the patient in helping them achieve their goals, and when leading their care teams towards their performance goals.
