The designated pick-up points are strategically located to streamline congestion in Read More »


The new year is a time of renewal and fresh new starts, right? So what better time for Baptist Health to start building on the two pieces of property that it owns just a few blocks from the City of South Miami. The first piece is on SW 62 Ave. just a stone’s throw from Sunset Drive, while the other piece is located around the corner directly on Sunset Drive a half block from 62 Ave. But wait there’s more: There is one critical piece that is missing from the collection – and that is the piece  between the two – the as-yet-to-be-acquired property on the corner of SW 62 Ave and Sunset, which connects with the other two pieces. The “old gas station” site, as it is frequently called, was acquired Read More »


As a nurse, I have directly contributed to the “life” of another human being.  Those moments have been the most incredible experiences of my life.  To see a human being alive because of the efforts that I have made in saving their life is the most rewarding and satisfying experience one person can have.  Helping others “live” is certainly my passion! Why did you choose healthcare? Honestly, for me healthcare was a “calling”, and I answered that calling.  In my early years the more seasoned nurses would often refer to nursing as a “calling”, almost in the sense of becoming a nun.  When someone has this calling, no career will bring you fulfillment to your life, and many nurses can attest to that.  Nursing is and remains the most trusted profession in America. Nursing is my purpose and a God Read More »


No two brands are created equal. Countless hours of market research, insights, and planning go into setting the stage for a memorable brand. Great brands aren’t born overnight, they are nurtured and evolved through the hands that purchase, use, consume or wear them. Household names that stand the test of time all have two things in common: trust and value. Trust + Value = Brand Appeal While value can be measured in both emotional and tangible dollar amounts, trust is primarily emotion. Trust is the single most difficult concept to market, yet it is what we all use to guide us through the purchasing process. For example, we want the detergent we can Read More »

One of the most interesting aspects of stem cells is how we can basically predict “when and how” they will work, regardless of age, race and gender of patients. Although it is a puzzle as to how they function in general, we can theorize as to how they act in the affected area in which they are introduced, whether it be the spine, knee, hip, or peripheral nerves. These cells are small seedlings found in our body since birth and are responsible for our growth (during our youth and adolescence) until we reach our “pinnacle period” between 30 and 35 years old. Unfortunately, (as we are not immortal) Read More »
