Dr. Lourdes M. Cano founded Cano Health in 2002 in Pembroke Pines as Cano Family Dental. Within two years, the center went from offering general dentistry to all outpatient dental specialties. The clinic’s reputation for clinical excellence and personalized care brought about rapid growth, spearheaded by Dr. Cano's son, Marlow Hernandez, upon graduation from business and medical school.
The early years were difficult for the Cano family, as they operated on extremely tight budgets. However, by the end of the “Great Recession,” Cano Health was operating one of the busiest and most prestigious medical centers in South Florida. It is one of the few outpatient healthcare organizations to hold JAHCO accreditation, major academic affiliations, and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Presently, Cano Health operates medical centers and dental centers in both Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Cano Health's founding partner, Rick Sanchez, who is considered a South Florida icon, spearheads Cano's community outreach and marketing efforts.
Cano Health takes pride in hiring the finest doctors and physician's assistants in South Florida. All Cano’s clinicians are dedicated to their patients and their professions in a way that matches or surpasses the dedication of most primary care centers. Why? Because at Cano, the difference is in the “Plus.” Our doctors and P.A.’s understand that Primary Care by itself is not enough— we must go the extra mile for our patients. Cano’s team of professionals will guide you through quality care, while also providing services not typically found at most primary care facilities. Whether it’s venous specialties, endocrinology, in-house lab work ups, allergies, arthritis, pediatrics, vision care, chiropractic medicine or more—the Cano Primary Care Plus difference will convince you to keep us as your trusted providers for years to come.

Cano Health will continue to grow beyond South Florida establishing itself as the "go-to" center for health news and information. Cano Health's founding partner, Rick Sanchez who is considered a South Florida icon, spearheads Cano's community outreach and marketing efforts.
