Message From the CEO
Welcome to the Healthy Start Coalition of Miami-Dade!
Our website is designed to provide a comprehensive and in-depth review of our organization, reflecting the pride we, at the Coalition, have in our commitment in ensuring that every baby gets a Healthy Start in life. It conveys our sense of mission and vision – to ensuring we are the leaders in maternal, infant and child health.
The Coalition’s culture is characterized by its ability to adapt quickly to our customer needs and changing health care landscape. From the Company’s start in 1992 to the present, our tradition of providing optimal customer service to the community partners we work with has driven continuous improvement in the way we operate and provide services. Every day, our services touch the lives of thousands of pregnant women and infants in Miami-Dade.
Through our website, you will discover our commitment to the maternal, infant and child health community in which we provide oversight on behalf of the State of Florida’s Department of Health and the Agency for Health Care Administration. Our objectives are to: provide assistance to the various community partners who provide direct healthy start services to clients; our commitment in facilitating financial and programmatic oversight; and assessing the needs of the community to better serve future clients in need.
These are exciting times for the Coalition and I think that through our website and the work we do in the community you will get a sense of our expertise, passion, reliability, and innovative nature as you see our vision and commitment so that every child in our community can have a Healthy Start in life.
Manuel “Manny” Fermin
