Brooksville, Fla.— The Florida Department of Health in Hernando County will be implementing a change in services on May 1, 2017. On that date, primary care, adult/child wellness and sick care, prenatal care, mental health services and dental services will transition to Premier Community HealthCare at the Spring Hill and Brooksville locations. Premier brings with it a 38-year history of health care delivery in Pasco County.

Core Public Health Will Continue

"As we make this transition, I’d like to reassure the public that our health department will remain open and will continue to focus on core public health," Robin Napier, health department administrator shared.

Core public health programming such as family planning, birth control, women’s health services, tuberculosis (TB), HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs) screenings/treatment, HIV/AIDs medical care, childhood and adult immunizations, Women, Infants and Children (WIC), breast feeding promotion and support, birth and death certificates, and environmental health services will continue at the health department.

"We are pleased to work closely with Premier Community HealthCare as they expand into Hernando County and continue the work we started twelve years ago," Napier concluded.
