$14-million from Florida for Hernando health clinic
St. Petersburg Times, April 30, 2008
Florida legislators have approved $14-million for the Hernando County Health Department for a new public health clinic. The new clinic would unite Health Department offices currently spread among several sites throughout the county, and officials said a new clinic would help the uninsured in the county who end up in emergency rooms for primary care. According to a Health Needs Assessment, about 17 percent of Hernando residents do not have medical insurance.
