Established in 2005 by hospice nurse, Owen O'Neill, who recognized both the need to recycle equipment that was no longer needed and the ever increasing numbers of people who would greatly benefit from its availability, Clinics Can Help (CCH) accepts gently used and new durable medical equipment (DME) and unwrapped medical supplies from individuals and organizations and makes it available to children and adults who may not otherwise be able to afford such equipment and supplies for their physical recovery. It is the only organization of its kind in Florida and one of the largest in the U.S. that provides this critical assistance.
