WHO WE ARE
The purpose of the Community Health and Wellness Center of Miami Inc (CHWCM) is to provide primary care delivered with the patient and the community first in mind. Primary care is traditionally the point of ‘first contact’ for the patient when a medical illness, issue or concern arises. We not only treat the patient when they are ill, but work with the patient when they are healthy to establish strong health maintenance skills by practicing disease prevention and health education.
Demographically and Strategically Located.
Community Created by Outreach.
Strong partnerships and collaboration efforts.
Continuously Improving and Building Our Organization’s Infrastructure.
Founder & Chairman
I (Masiel Moreira) am a successful entrepreneur and business leader in South Florida. My work and dedication to the community have led to being recognized by local governments where Mayors and Commissioners of both Miami and Hialeah have awarded me Proclamations for my excellent community work, specifically naming August 21st as “Masiel Moreira Day in Miami”. I am currently nominated for the “Woman Inspiring Women Awards”. I consider myself a kind, warm, and humble person and would like to share a little bit about myself.
My business career took off in 2006 when I had the opportunity to create my first medical center specializing in preventive medicine and physical therapy. Today I manage six multi-specialty clinics with over 100 employees in addition to serving other businesses that I am also passionate about.
Despite having spent 10 years in the United States without an immigration status because of mishandling of my documents, I managed to avoid getting public assistance and survived with minimal funds. The most difficult thing for me was to “raise enough money to pay for my routine visits to the doctor which I needed because I suffered from low hemoglobin and had a constant fear that I would lose my health.”
My passion for the medical field and the ability to help others when I was financially able to provide those services was a commitment that I never pondered on. My passion for the medical field was born early in my life and came to fruition in the year 2013 when I created Community Health and Wellness Center of Miami Inc. It has been my mantra to help all others because I identify with their pain. Health to me is the most precious gift and I know that God put me in this position during this time and now its my turn to execute a mission that I am ready to fulfil.
Through Community Health and Wellness Center of Miami we can offer various programs to those that are uninsured and underinsured such as “Free Care Friday” which provides premium health services at a very low cost and appreciated by many.
We also founded “Pink Day”, an event where I award mammograms to low-income women as prevention against breast cancer. Children are also my priority and with the “back to school” program we deliver backpacks and school supplies to the children. Through the nonprofit work, we can feed families during Thanksgiving, the traditional turkey dinner, and during Christmas we hand out toys in vulnerable areas where children live and where parents must decide between basic needs or toys. During the City of Surfside building collapse, we provided meals for the rescuers working day and night.
Throughout my journey, I have achieved everything I have set out to do because it has been a labor of love and daily commitment. It has not been easy and while I have had falls, stumbles, fears, and uncertainty, giving up was not an option. Every day I set new goals and objectives and that is the reason today I am the most recognized and respected leader within our community. I am truly blessed and recognize that the greatest gift from God is my daughter who is an extraordinary human being. She has been the greatest blessing in my life. When I see my daughter, I see myself.
“Consistency, perseverance, and respect have always been my formula for success.”
