Weston-based Cleveland Clinic Florida is hoping to attract at least 300 patients to its new concierge medicine program in 2018, according to the Sun Sentinel.

The program, which launched this month, offers patients a variety of services and benefits, including increased accessibility to their physician, longer appointments, a customized preventive care and wellness plan, and a dedicated phone number to access the concierge medicine healthcare team.

Cleveland Clinic Florida Concierge Medicine, which costs $333 a month, does not accept any private insurance plans and does not participate in any government programs, including Medicare.

Cleveland Clinic Florida President Wael Barsoum, MD, said the system hopes to enroll 300 patients in the program this year. "We will explore expanding the program when we reach capacity," he said in a statement to the Sun Sentinel.
