“We are privileged to care for the elderly of our country, and we are fortunate to have a diverse and growing team of ambitious leaders who help us do so,” said Carlos de Solo, CEO of CareMax. “Ultimately, 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 who face challenges that prevent them from accessing basic nutritional, social and mental health needs. This year, CareMax saw site openings in healthcare deserts in New York, Tennessee and Texas; with all 42 locations meeting the five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The company has maintained and improved quality, even though its size has increased tenfold. With more than 50 locations open by the end of 2022, it seeks to not only bring proven, value-based care to new communities, but also to provide economic opportunity for those who live and work in those communities.
CareMax’s leadership reflects the diverse communities it serves. CareMax continues to make great strides in expanding the representation of women and minorities in its leadership. Some 33% of its leadership positions are held by women and more than 80% of employees are minorities, 78% of whom are Hispanic. While continuing to focus on developing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging initiatives.
CareMax is committed to providing health care 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 patients who had no way to reach us, we went to get them. CareMax provided 485,285 trips to get patients to and from their appointments. When it comes to technology, many patients are often uncomfortable, which makes virtual visits difficult. 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 has also formed two key 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 the development and management of commercial and residential properties, and Anthem, Inc., a national health benefits company serving more than 117 million people, will bring our model based on value to communities across the country.
From hosting events at its facilities, participating in community awareness events, to donating thousands of masks and personal care kits to food drives, CareMax knows its commitment to underserved populations is strengthened through philanthropy and volunteerism. Together, CareMax has helped over 15,000 families and raised over $1.6 million in cash and product. To ensure it reaches the people who need their help, CareMax has identified, partnered with, and supported 31 different organizations, each of which advocates for a population or helps to empower its target population from different manners.
