Leon Health is a new Medicare Advantage Plan launched by Benjamín León, Jr., a visionary in the health care field, and the Leon family. Mr. León, Jr. alongside his father, Mr. León, Sr., founded Clínica Asociación Cubana (CAC) in June 1970 under which the León family worked arduously to introduce the concept of managed care to the State of Florida. The León family became central figures in the development of the original Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) Act of October 1, 1972. On March 6, 1973, Clínica Asociación Cubana was granted the state’s first HMO license (HMO-73-1) becoming a pioneer in the HMO movement in Florida.
Mr. León Jr. later established Leon Medical Centers, Inc. (LMC) in 1996, with the mission of honoring the León family’s tradition of improving the quality of life of Medicare recipients and the elderly. LMC was poised to provide unparalleled medical care, compassion, and offer patients a home away from home.
Under Mr. León Jr.’s leadership, LMC has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious healthcare institutions in Florida. A model for institutions locally, as well as nationally, LMC is allied with Miami-Dade’s most prominent hospitals, and employs and contracts with top performing physicians, specialists and healthcare professionals. This results in the finest healthcare delivery system in the county, backed by long-standing healthcare entities.
With numerous dedicated professionals who serve more than 42,000 Medicare recipients, Leon Medical Centers is redefining the status quo in the industry. LMC offers superior medical care, providing the Medicare population in Miami-Dade County with the dignity, respect, compassion and human kindness that they deserve.
The Leon family has provided health and well-being to its beneficiaries in Miami-Dade County for 25 years, and the Leon family continues to invest in innovation, physician trainings, center expansions and a health plan that has been customized to our Medicare community with the ultimate purpose of improving lives.
