Dr. Yeeny GonzalezAs CEO of PCP1st, Dr. Yeeny Gonzalez leads a remote healthcare solutions company dedicated to providing a comprehensive suite of services including telehealth, remote patient monitoring, continuous glucose monitoring, chronic care management, and case management. Catering to the communities of Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County, PCP1st has emerged as a pivotal player in modern healthcare delivery. Founded in 2019, PCP1st stands out as a veteran, woman, and minority-owned company, established by Dr. Gonzalez prior to the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the crisis, the company adeptly adapted to deliver primary care services remotely, playing a critical role in the treatment and management of COVID-19 positive patients. This approach significantly mitigated exposure risk for both primary care providers and their teams. During the pandemic, PCP1st's innovative remote monitoring program was instrumental in managing high-risk patients by closely tracking blood pressure and blood glucose levels, thereby reducing unnecessary emergency room visits and hospital admissions.

In the wake of the pandemic, PCP1st's engagement with the community has not waned, but intensified. A notable initiative includes the donation of hundreds of blood pressure machines to support home monitoring for patients facing financial barriers. This initiative not only equipped an underserved population with essential health tools but also demonstrated PCP1st's unwavering commitment to enhancing healthcare access for all.

PCP1st further extended its community involvement by introducing the PCP1st VA Scholarship at Keiser University. This scholarship, awarded to a meritorious veteran student, demonstrated the company's dedication to educational empowerment and the support of veterans in the healthcare industry. Moreover, the Keiser-PCP1st Community Health Fair, hosted at Keiser University's WPB campus, exemplified the company's proactive stance on health education. Through this event, PCP1st provided vital health screenings and education on chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension, facilitating better community health literacy and disease management.
