Leon Healthy Living Centers
You’ll feel our mission of “personal attention at all times” from our doctor’s offices to our fitness centers. At Leon Medical Centers, we want all our patients to stay healthy and active. We strongly believe one of the reasons we’re here is to help you improve your body, mind and social health. Since you’re part of our family, your well-being is what matters most.
Leon Healthy Living Centers are designed to help older adults have an active lifestyle. It’s where you’ll find many programs and activities that focus on your health.
The knowledgeable staff at Leon Health Living Centers includes Reinaldo Jaffet, the administrative director. He was the former assistant athletic trainer and director of rehabilitation for the Miami HEAT and as a result he brings years of experience to better manage your needs.
