Umatilla, FL, clinic poised to expand primary care, insurance services

Orlando Sentinel, September 29, 2008

The Florida Department of Health recently gave the Lake County Health Department a three-year grant to increase healthcare access for low-income and uninsured residents. Under the Lake Primary Care Project, the Umatilla (FL) Health Clinic will expand its staff and extend hours. Planners hope it will be a first stop for patients’ medical needs and a place to work out health-insurance issues, and it’s also part of an effort to cut down on the number of people using hospital emergency rooms for nonemergency medical attention.
