November 19 2019  - Nearly 200 children, parents, grandparents, hospital staff and Glades community leaders attended the 10th anniversary celebration of Lakeside Medical Center on November 9, 2019. In addition to music, food and fun activities, participants also received tips about staying healthy from the hospital's medical staff.
 
Attendees were also given tours of the newly opened Belle Glade Clinic at Lakeside Medical Center. One of ten C. L.

The clinic provides medical, dental, pharmacy and behavioral health services for adults and children. As a Federally Qualified Health Center, the clinic serves all patients, regardless of ability to pay, and offers a sliding fee scale.
 
“As someone who grew up in Belle Glade, I care deeply about the Glades communities,” said Janet D. Moreland, ARNP, MSN, LHRM, Lakeside Medical Center’s Hospital Administrator, who addressed the crowd. “Since our opening ten years ago, we have become an acute-care, teaching facility that is recognized nationally for patient safety.  We are passionate about providing the highest quality care to residents of this rural, western agricultural region.”
 
Adding the Belle Glade Clinic to Lakeside Medical Center is an important step in providing comprehensive medical services to the Glades communities, said Darcy J. Davis, CEO of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County.
 
“Lakeside Medical Center is a vital component of Palm Beach County’s health care safety net,” said Davis.  “By moving the Belle Glade Clinic inside our hospital, we are further advancing an integrated approach to care that will improve access to services for residents of the Tri-Cities. We hope more families will make this clinic their medical home.”
