At Florida Medical Center

By Steven O. Evans, PhD

On Wednesday, May 20, 2020, family, friends, and co-workers of Florida Medical Center (FMC) gathered for a special surprise. The morning was to honor a member of their team, nurse Berkens Jean Baptiste, with a brand new, bright red, 2020 Hyundai Sonata. The vehicle and others were donated by Hyundai to celebrate our local heroes as they continue the fight against COVID-19.

Berkens has served tirelessly at FMC by often riding his bike when his current car was broken down, volunteering in other units, and oftentimes taking on extra shifts. He was chosen out of 1,800 nominations for this amazing award and car. 

We thank Hyundai USA for this program and their gift to celebrate our heroes.
