Like them, we understand the importance of both patient experience and exceptional clinical outcomes. We are confident that Vibra will complement the area’s existing care options, serve as a reliable post-acute partner for local providers, and offer those in need of our services a high-quality choice for their care.”
“We’re pleased to welcome Vibra Healthcare to Boynton Beach, bringing 160 new jobs and a capital investment of $32 million to Palm Beach County,” said Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County.
