September 19, 2022 – CareMax, Inc. (“CareMax”) (NASDAQ: CMAX; CMAXW), a leading technology-enabled provider of value-based care to seniors, released its 2021 Impact Report. The report details the company’s continued commitment to underserved populations in healthcare deserts, awards and recognitions, strides toward ethnic and gender diversity, and key initiatives.
“We are privileged to care for our nation’s seniors, and we are fortunate to have a diverse and growing team of expectational leaders helping us to do so,” said Carlos de Solo, CEO of CareMax. “At the end of the day we will continue to focus first and foremost on serving aging populations in healthcare deserts who need our support to age gracefully, with pride and productivity.”
CareMax is committed to improving the health of underserved populations – people who live in healthcare deserts or face challenges preventing them from accessing basic nutritional, social and mental health requirements. This year CareMax has seen location openings in healthcare deserts in New York, Tennessee and Texas; with all 42 locations meeting the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ five-star rating. The company has maintained and improved quality, even as it increased in size tenfold. With more than 50 locations opening by the end of 2022– it not only looks to bring proven value-based care to new communities but also provide economic opportunity for those who live and work in these communities.
CareMax’s leadership reflects the diverse communities it serves. CareMax continues to make great strides in expanding female and minority representation in its leadership. Some 33 percent of its leadership roles are filled by women, and more than 80 percent of employees are minorities, with 78 percent of these being Hispanic. All the while continuing its focus on developing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging initiatives.
CareMax is committed to providing healthcare to underserved populations through convenient locations, accessible transportation and targeted technology. In 2021, CareMax expanded its patient base to cover 26,000 Medicare patients. For those patients who didn’t have a way to get to us, we picked them up. CareMax has provided 485,285 trips to bring patients to and from appointments. When it comes to technology, many patients are often uncomfortable, which makes virtual visits a challenge. Given the risks of in-person visits when COVID-19 infection rates are high, CareMax has worked hard to educate its patients, including providing them with the technology they need for virtual telehealth visits.
CareMax also formed two pivotal partnerships to bring its value-based care to hundreds of thousands more people who need it. Its groundbreaking partnerships with The Related Companies, a leader in commercial and residential property development and management, and Anthem, Inc., a national health benefits company serving more than 117 million people, will bring our value-based model to communities across the country.
From organizing events at its facilities, participating in outreach events in the community, thousands of masks and personal care package giveaways to food drives– CareMax knows that its commitment to underserved populations is made stronger through philanthropy and volunteerism. Together, CareMax has helped more than 15,000 families and raised more than $1.6 million in cash and products. To ensure its reaches people who need their help, CareMax identified, partnered with, and supported 31 different organizations, each of which advocates for a population or helps to empower its target population in different ways.
