The Campbell Foundation, a Fort Lauderdale-based organization dedicated to funding HIV/AIDS research, is pleased to announce that its Executive Director, Ken Rapkin, will receive the "Spirit of Hope" award from Broward House.
The award was established to recognize the impactful individuals who bring hope to the community, not only through their support of Broward House, but also through participation with many of its partners. Rapkin will receive the award during an Aug. 30 reception to be held at the B Ocean Resort in Fort Lauderdale.
"We look to honor the individuals who make a difference, but who often are not recognized in our community, and demonstrate a commitment to increasing prevention and care and reducing stigma through their actions," said Broward House president and CEO Stacy Hyde.

Leon Medical Centers Donates $2.5 Million to Jackson Health Foundation

Miami based Leon Medical Centers announced a $2.5 million donation to the Jackson Health Foundation, the fundraising arm of Jackson Health System, for naming rights of the new fourth floor of Jackson South Community Hospital. The gift also includes future naming rights for the top floor at Jackson West, a new hospital campus planned for the City of Doral.
"The partnership between Jackson Health System and Leon Medical Centers is bringing two of Miami-Dade County's most respected and beloved medical institutions even closer together," said Carlos A. Migoya, president and CEO of Jackson Health System.
Jackson South recently completed a modernization projection of the hospital's fourth floor. The floor has 24 private rooms, and it features dialysis service, telemetry, and a dedicated physician dictation area, as well as a comfortable family lounge outfitted with modern amenities, such as charging stations and work space.
"This year we celebrate our 20-year anniversary of providing medical care to patients in Miami-Dade and it is because of partners like Jackson Health System that we have been able to practice medical excellence at the level I envisioned when I started Leon Medical Centers 20 years ago," said Benjamín León, Jr., founder of Leon Medical Centers.
Here is an example of how we put our PolicyOwners first - a short video about our Doctor2Doctor peer support program created to connect physicians enduring a lawsuit.
