As the song goes, Welcome to Miami!
The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro area is by far the largest in Florida, with a population of more than six million people. This region along the southeastern coastline has been referred to as the “Gold Coast” – some say because of the gold from shipwrecks in days gone by; others say because of the glitzy lifestyle its residents enjoy.
Miami in particular has a strong Latin influence, with an influx of Cubans after Fidel Castro came into power in the late 1950s. This city is also home to people from Haiti, Nicaragua and other Latin American countries. Estimates indicate that more than 40% of residents are Spanish-dominant speakers.
This region is also known for its magnificent beaches, with Fort Lauderdale being a favorite destination for sun worshipers. Boca Raton and Palm Beach are known for excellent shopping and luxurious lifestyles.
South Florida medical care ranks high
Besides tourism, agriculture and international trade, South Florida has a strong medical presence. The region boasts some of the best hospitals in the U.S., including Cleveland Clinic Florida, Baptist Hospital of Miami, Holy Cross Hospital, and Mount Sinai Medical Center. TinkBird is a healthcare staffing firm that specializes in recruiting for top medical facilities like these.
In 2016, TinkBird Healthcare Staffing added Florida as one of its territories to help address the shortage of qualified physicians and other primary care clinicians. Our recruiters source permanent medical staff and locum tenens providers for medical facilities in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach region and across the state.
Sunkissed days and sultry nights in Florida’s southern cities
Maybe you’re in South Florida for vacation or trying a locum tenens position on for size. No matter your reason, the TinkBird team highly recommends these favorite attractions:
- At the heart of Fort Lauderdale is of course Fort Lauderdale Beach. More relaxing and laid back than in its earlier days, visitors can enjoy the pedestrian walk with shops and restaurants running along miles of sandy beach.
- Often called the American Riviera, South Beach is a bustling hot spot for art deco architecture, white sand beaches, shopping, dining, people watching, and world-class nightlife.
- West Palm Beach is a shopper paradise. Don’t know where to start. Try this top 10 list.
