CHP’s Urgent Care Center: Faster and Less Costly Than the Emergency Room!

Note: This article is over 60 days old, and may contain information that is out of date, or has been superseded by newer information.

If you need immediate care for a sickness or injury, consider calling CHP’s expertly staffed Urgent Care Center at 850-383-3382. You will bypass the hectic surroundings and long waits of a hospital Emergency Department—along with the higher copayments. Just telephone our Urgent Care Center and receive an appointment. (If you have a truly life-threatening condition, go to the Emergency Department.)

The CHP Urgent Care Center, located at the Centerville Place Health Center, is staffed by physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses. Medical problems appropriate for treatment at the Center are:

  • upper respiratory infections, ear infections, and sore throats
  • minor but acute illnesses that include high fever, nausea, or vomiting
  • minor trauma, including ankle sprains or cuts
  • urinary tract infections

The Silver Stars Celebration is one of Tallahassee’s premier senior recognition events, honoring a select group of people for their special contributions. The Tallahassee Senior Center, which spearheads the event, invites the community to nominate Silver Stars. Capital Health Plan is proud to be a major sponsor for the 2011 celebration which culminates in a festive awards dinner at the FSU University Center this spring.

We bet you know some: those shining women and men who reach age 60 and just keep bringing more brightness into the world. Who can be a star? Your friends, neighbors, relatives who…

  • Since age 60 have accomplished outstanding achievements
  • Demonstrated exemplary service to others and our community
  • Are inspiring models of active aging

From athletes to caregivers, Silver Stars illuminate many paths in life. Past honorees include athletes, executive directors, community advocates, caregivers, volunteers, and entrepreneurs. If you know someone 60 or older whose life of service you admire, whatever the arena, share your appreciation. Nominate a senior star and let the whole community know.
