For Immediate Release
York, PA. On April 4, 2023, Central Penn Business Journal hosted their annual “Health Care Heroes” awards to recognize excellence, promote innovation, and honor the efforts of organizations and individuals making a significant impact on the quality of health care in our area.
Family First Health is pleased to share that Dr. Luis Garcia, our Chief Medical Information Officer, received a “Physician Hero” award, which honors a physician who displays exemplary performance in his/her field and whose services benefit our local communities.
Dr. Garcia joined Family First Health in 2014. A practicing family physician, he provides primary care and family medicine services to adults and children at the George Street Center, and has proven to be a trusted advocate for the Spanish speaking patient population.
“The achievement of any family doctor can’t be measured in the typical way we think of achievements,” Garcia noted. “Family medicine is a medicine of relationships. It’s not the number of patients seen, procedures done, or lives saved but how the relationship affected the individual patient’s life.”
Dr. Garcia is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians, and serves on the board of FACTS, an organization to promote and educate medical professionals about awareness based fertility methods.
His hobbies and interests include spending time with his family, traveling, and photography. He is also a writer and avid gardener, growing much of his own produce to support a healthy diet for his family.
