Hope HealthCare Services President and CEO Samira K. Beckwith has been recognized as an “unsung hero” of positive values and ethnic diversity – an inspiration for others throughout southwest Florida.

Beckwith was presented with the Face Award, created by Gulfshore Business and D’Latinos magazines, celebrating southwest Florida as a beacon for international immigrants.

As a child, Beckwith and her family came to the US from Lebanon, in search of the American Dream. Today, she is recognized as a leader in healthcare on the local, state and national levels. In 2011, she celebrates her 20th anniversary serving as President and CEO of one of the country’s leading hospice and healthcare providers.
