Second Employee Clinic Opens February 27 on Gables Campus
Got an earache or a sore throat? Feeling sick at work is no fun, but finding help when you’re under the weather will be more convenient for UM employees no matter where they work starting Monday, February 27, when UM President Donna E. Shalala and Miller School Dean Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., dedicate the Coral Gables Healthy ’Canes Employee Clinic during a grand opening celebration that begins at noon.
Located in the McKnight Building, 5807 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, across from Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park, the walk-in clinic will be open to all benefits-eligible University employees for just $10 a visit.
As is the case with the Healthy ‘Canes Clinic on the medical campus, employees visiting the Gables clinic can see a nurse practitioner for colds, urinary tract infections, allergies, blisters, bites, sprains and other minor maladies. Walk-ins are welcome, even encouraged and UM employees may visit either clinic no matter where they work.
The grand opening ceremony will feature a ribbon-cutting, healthy snacks, giveaways, and photo opportunities with Sebastian the Ibis. For more information about the Gables clinic or the medical campus clinic, in room 708 of the Professional Arts Center, 1150 N.W. 14th Street, visit www.healthycanesclinic.com.
