South Florida Hospital & Healthcare Association President Linda Quick last week announced she will retire on Dec. 31 after 21 years of service to the association. “As I embark on the next phase of my life’s work, I am leaving the organization in superior condition and in good hands with our Board of Directors, committee chairs and our small, but amazing leadership team,” Quick said. Lincoln Mendez, CEO of South Miami Hospital and SFHHA chairman said, “We are all so happy for Linda. In some ways she has outgrown our market area, and we have already seen where her expertise and influence are being sought by national companies.”
