Owen O’Neill started the nonprofit organization Clinics Can Help, with a passion for filling a critical need in the healthcare continuum.
“The patients who had access to medical equipment got better and got back to school or back to work”, he said.
Deciding to take action, he began recycling the medical equipment he received while working as a hospice nurse and founded Clinics Can Help. In 2017, Clinics Can Help assisted 2,400 children and adults with more than $1.1 million of donations.
Mr. O’Neill’s stewardship of the organization’s growth earned him the 2018 Leadership Excellence Award from Leadership Palm Beach County. He will be honored along with three other award winners on June 7 at the Leadership Celebration at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
