The Acevedo Family and La Colonia Medical Center
Jorge Acevedo is the president and founder of La Colonia Medical Center, a prestigious medical institution that has earned recognition from the community for providing a superior level of health care to the Medicare population in South Florida. Since their beginnings in the industry, La Colonia’s goal has been to make a difference in the lives of the elderly while continually demonstrating compassion and respect.
Beyond their entrepreneurial work, the Acevedo’s are a philanthropic family that passionately support organizations dedicated to saving lives, such as the American Cancer Society.
The Acevedo’s continuous contributions to charitable causes stems from their strong family values and their profound commitment to society.
“My goal is to promote awareness and contribute towards better treatment options. I believe that together we can find ways to increase life expectancy, improve quality of life, and strive to find a cure against cancer.”
-Dr. Jorge Acevedo
