Pinellas County Human Services has partnered with the Pinellas County Department of Health and the Turley Family Health Center to provide prevention-focused health care to eligible Pinellas county residents. The Pinellas County Health Program moves clients from a "sick care" model toward a "disease management" model through the use of medical homes.
