May 28, 2015
The Florida Department of Health in Orange County (DOH-Orange) welcomes True Health, formally known as Central Florida Family Health Center (CFFHC) as a new Obstetric provider and community partner in Orange County. DOH-Orange and True Health are among many other providers in the community that are committed to the health of moms and babies in Orange County.
Having a healthy pregnancy is one of the best ways to promote a healthy birth. True Health is accepting new prenatal patients, 5 days a week, at their Hoffner center, 5449 S. Semoran Blvd. Suite # 13. Plans are to open a second site on July 1st at their Alafaya center, 11881-A East Colonial Dr. Orlando two days per week. For more information and to schedule an appointment please call 321-259-BABY (2229) or visit http://www.mytruehealth.org/ .
The Eastside and Lake Underhill DOH-Orange offices no longer accept new prenatal care patients. Existing prenatal patients over 28 weeks gestation will continue to be seen at Eastside and Lake Underhill DOH-Orange offices until delivery. Family Planning, WIC and STD services will continue at these offices for both male and female patients, Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm with Friday hours from 7:30 to 11:30 am.
“We are pleased to have True Health join our community of prenatal care partners to ensure there are sufficient providers for the uninsured in Orange County and mothers and babies receive quality care,” said Dr. Kevin M. Sherin, director of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County.
“True Health is excited about this partnership and the opportunity to provide the best quality care to our Orange County mothers and babies during the most important stages of development,” said Latrice Stewart, chief executive officer for True Health.
Early and regular prenatal care is important in order to have a healthy pregnancy and improve birth outcomes.
