WELCOME to Tallahassee Greetings and welcome to Tallahassee! On behalf of our entire city, please allow me to welcome you to your new home! Tallahassee is a wonderful place to live because there’s something here for everyone. Whether you’re exploring our beautiful natural resources, like our rivers, forests or canopy roads; enjoying our thriving cultural scene by visiting art galleries, catching a concert at our Capital City Amphitheater, or eating at one of our delicious restaurants; enhancing your skill set and opportunities at one of our fine institutions of higher learning; or starting a small business and engaging with our emerging innovation and entrepreneurial economy, you will find something for you here. Our city is one of the best places in the country to raise a family, and we like to think that the atmosphere of friendliness and community togetherness that pervades Tallahassee is second to none. We are so happy to have you here in our growing city with a small-town feel; once again let me say: Welcome! Sincerely,

Andrew D. Gillum Mayor, City of Tallahassee

So, you have chosen to make Leon County your new home: We’re awfully glad you’re here. And I am certain that in years to come you’ll consider this one of the happiest decisions you’ve ever made. Tallahassee is the capital of the third largest state. But the friendliness you’ll find around almost any corner will convince you that the charm and distinctively diverse culture that has made Southern life a timeless literary theme is also a day-to-day reality here. As home to two major universities, a large community college, and one of the state’s best public school systems, you won’t find people who are shy about confronting conflicts head on. That the city is youthful and well-educated contributes to an ongoing drive to stimulate our economic, cultural, heritage and recreational opportunities in ways that are progressive and sometimes transformative. Whether you are here for the first time, a short time or a lifetime, I hope you’ll start exploring and get involved. It’s always been the people that are the heart of this town.

Nick Maddox Chairman Leon County Board of County Commissioners

TALLAHASSEE

TALLAHASSEE

ALMANAC

A COMPENDIUM OF FACTS AND FIGURES — AND JUST PLAIN FUN STUFF TO KNOW • Tallahassee is positioned 30.45 degrees north of the equator and 84.28 degrees west of the prime meridian. Its elevation is 203 feet above sea level.

• The city was incorporated on Dec. 9, 1825. It has a total area of 103.1 square miles.

• Leon County’s population was 240,201 in 2000. It was 275,487 in 2010 and is estimated to be 296,800 in 2020.

• At 22 stories, Florida’s Capitol is the

tallest building in the city. The modern structure was built behind the more classically styled “old” Capitol, which was supposed to be demolished after the new building was completed. However, the Historic Capitol was preserved, and the juxtaposition of the old and new buildings creates a unique vista for those driving westward on Apalachee Parkway.

• Florida’s Prime Meridian — the marker from which all surveying in the state is based — is located about a quartermile away from the Capitol building in Cascades Park in a plaza behind the Capital City Amphitheater.

• Tallahassee was the only Confederate

capital east of the Mississippi River that did not fall to the Union army.

• Tallahassee is the only municipality

in Leon County, and about 64 percent of county residents live within the city limits. Voters have gone to the polls four times (1971, 1973, 1976, 1992) to vote on consolidating the city and county into one entity, but it was rejected each time.

• All Tallahassee/Leon County is within Florida’s 2nd congressional district,

LET IT SNOW? Tallahassee can be considerably colder than Central and South Florida, with temperatures dipping below freezing on some winter nights. But don’t break out the skis and snow boots just yet. According to the local office of the National Weather Service, Tallahassee has had measurable snowfall only eight times since 1891. However, Tallahassee saw its first measurable snowfall in almost three decades in January 2018, when .1 inches was recorded. It was the first snow in Tallahassee since December 1989, when 1 inch fell, and it’s the first recorded measurable snowfall in the Capital City during the month of January since April 1885. The most snow Tallahassee has seen, 2.8 inches, fell in February 1958.


STATE OF FLORIDA

Florida’s state government is overseen by the governor and three elected members of the state Cabinet — the Agriculture Commissioner, Attorney General and Chief Financial Officer. Each resident is also represented by a member of the Florida House of Representatives and a member of the Florida Senate. The House has 120 members, the Senate has 40. Leon County is represented by House Districts 7, 8 and 9 and by Senate District 3. To determine which House and Senate districts you live in, you can contact the Leon County Supervisor of Elections. You can also use your zip code on the legislative websites (flsenate.gov or myfloridahouse.gov) to determine your representative and senator. Representatives are elected every two years. Senators are elected every four years.

LEON COUNTY

Leon County is guided by an elected, seven-member Board of County Commissioners. Five board members are elected to serve specific commission districts, and two members are elected at-large. Each year, members of the board select a chairman and vice chairman from within the group. The Leon County Administrator and County Attorney are appointed by the board to oversee all functions, directives and policies. Other Leon County elected officials include county and circuit court judges, the State Attorney, Public Defender, the School Board, Superintendent and five constitutional officers: Clerk of the Court, Property Appraiser, Sheriff, Supervisor of Elections and Tax Collector.

CITY OF TALLAHASSEE

The Mayor and four-member City Commission are the governing body of the city, and all serve four-year terms. All of the seats are nonpartisan and there are no districts: All members are elected citywide. The terms of office are staggered, with elections for two commission seats held every other year. The mayor, who is elected to that particular position, has a vote at commission meetings but no veto power. Tallahassee’s executive staff — the City Manager, Attorney, Auditor and Treasurer/ Clerk — are appointed to their positions by the city commission. A wealth of information about the Tallahassee City Commission, as well as city operations and services can be found at the talgov.com website.

H

ello, newcomer. Welcome to Tallahassee, Florida’s capital, a city both historic and progressive in a region of the Sunshine State that is contentedly less famous than Orlando and Miami.

This is a good-natured community that enjoys its natural beauty and reveres its heritage, invests in cultural pursuits, looks out for the neighbors, likes to learn and loves to have fun. Newcomers and new ideas are welcome here. You already know that Tallahassee/ Leon County is the seat of Florida government and home to two state universities. The Florida Legislature and state agencies manage public affairs affecting millions of people throughout the state. Florida State University and Florida A&M University bring thousands of students here from around the world, and their faculties make academic excellence a Tallahassee brand. State workers and university personnel are the backbone of this place, along with families who have been here for generations running banks, farms, stores and other commerce. The result is a community grounded in history and infused with energy, brain power and a healthy appetite for living well. This Newcomer Guide provides practical information on setting up utilities, locating shops, finding doctors and creating relationships to get you started

on a life well lived in Tallahassee and Leon County. Take time to connect with organizations that offer education, recreation, social support and opportunities to volunteer. To become familiar with the local scene, read Tallahassee Magazine, bookmark VisitTallahassee.com, and tune in to WFSU-FM and other local radio and TV programs. Bring your ideas to The Village Square and be part of the conversation about what Tallahassee is and could become. As soon as you can, start sightseeing. See the forests and the trees throughout Tallahassee and Leon County and our signature canopy roads. Explore the urban and rural parks and the abundance of gathering places for festivals, concerts and sports. Check out the variety of restaurants and the city’s craft breweries. Browse the art galleries, watch for the street murals and step into the pubs and concert halls brimming with local, regional and national talent. They sing volumes about what the area has to offer. Make a point to visit the city’s fascinating museums and attractions. They include the state’s official Museum of

To see the region unadorned, explore the 600 miles of hiking, biking and paddling trails known collectively as Trailahassee, visit Wakulla Springs State Park just 30 minutes to the south, and spend a day at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, a coastal wilderness less than an hour from downtown. Perhaps the best way to start “Becoming a Local” is to visit the 22nd floor of the Florida Capitol and its observation deck and art gallery, where you can view this area from Tallahassee’s highest vantage point — a vista that extends on clear days all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. What you can see in every direction is an energetic city that welcomes you and a beautiful part of the Sunshine State that is yours to explore. Enjoy.

Florida History, a multi-media time capsule spanning 14,000 years; Mission San Luis, bringing to life Spanish colonists and Apalachee natives who co-existed here four centuries ago; the Challenger Learning Center, hosting space-mission simulations and screening first-run movies in its 3D IMAX theater; Tallahassee Museum, home to indigenous wildlife and an authentic pioneer farmstead; and the city’s newest, The Grove Museum, an antebellum mansion built by enslaved people that eventually was home to Florida Gov. LeRoy Collins, a 1960s civil-rights champion. Make plans to take part in Tallahassee’s foremost events, including Springtime Tallahassee, the Word of South Festival of Literature and Music, the Southern Shakespeare Festival and the LeMoyne Chain of Parks Art Festival. During football season, head to CollegeTown on Fridays before home games for the FSU Block Party. Each first Friday of the month, stroll through Railroad Square Art Park for the late-night open house and street party with the locals. Go to a football game to experience one of Tallahassee’s favorite pastimes, with two college teams to love: the Florida State Seminoles and the FAMU Rattlers. And throughout the year, we have baseball, basketball, softball, tennis, soccer, swimming, crosscountry and Olympic-qualifying equestrian events. Throughout the year, listen out for the concert lineup at Capital City Amphitheater, at the heart of Cascades Park, which recently hosted Train, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Avett Brothers and Alabama Shakes. Opening Nights Performing Arts, which recently hosted Patti LuPone, the Danish String Quartet, Yo-Yo Ma, Maceo Parker, Michael McDonald and Bria Skonberg, presents a new series every year, as does the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, which performs a free Halloween concert in Cascades Park — Symphony Spooktacular — and performs around the city year-round. Whether it’s classical or contemporary, Tallahassee hits the right notes. To sample old Tallahassee, stop in at Lofty Pursuits for oldfashioned ice-cream sundaes and sodas, and take one of those canopy roads into the countryside to feast on smoked sausage and other farm fixins’ at the historic Bradley’s Country Store. Spend a few afternoons touring Goodwood Museum & Gardens and Pebble Hill Plantation, two of the Red Hills region’s oncevast estates. And by all means, catch a live show at the rustic Bradfordville Blues Club, a cinder-block juke joint where authentic blues bands have been performing each weekend since the

Rolling garbage containers are provided to residents for household garbage disposal.

Customers’ containers should be at the curb no earlier than the day before the scheduled collection day and should be at least 3 feet away from obstacles such as mailboxes or shrubbery and away from low-hanging lines. Garbage containers must be removed from the curb no later than the day after service. Non-hazardous and non-recyclable materials should be placed in garbage bags before being put in the container.

Customers with medical/physical limitations who are unable to roll their garbage container to the curb can apply for Helping Hands Service at no additional charge.

To apply for either service or for more information, call 891-4YOU (4968) or visit Talgov.com/YOU.

RECYCLING The City of Tallahassee makes recycling convenient. No sorting is needed, and all plastic, glass, metal and cardboard can be placed together in the recycling container. Recyclable items include plastic containers holding less than 3 gallons, metal cans, glass bottles, newspapers, magazines and cardboard. Plastic bags and Styrofoam are not recyclable. To avoid bugs and odors, cans, bottles and jars should be rinsed out. Crushing containers and breaking down boxes will increase the amount of material that will fit into the recycling container. For a complete list of recyclable items and a list of where to recycle items that don’t go into the container, visit Talgov.com/YOU. Recycling is scheduled for pickup every week on the same day as garbage pickup. Containers should be at the curb no earlier than the day before the scheduled collection day. The container should be placed so that it is at least 3 feet away from obstacles such as mailboxes or shrubbery and not located under low-hanging lines. The recycling container must be removed from the curb no later than the day after service to prevent a safety hazard. Customers with medical/physical limitations who are unable to roll their container to the curb can apply for Helping Hands Service at no additional charge. To apply for this service, call (850) 891-4YOU (4968) or visit Talgov.com/YOU.

YARD WASTE Yard waste is scheduled for pickup from the curb every other week according the customer’s Red/Blue week schedule. Yard waste includes grass clippings, pine straw, leaves, twigs, small limbs and shrub trimmings. If placed at the curb off schedule, it will be picked up on the next scheduled collection day. Customers may request a special collection to have waste removed prior to the scheduled collection day for a fee. Items should not be loose; they should be in heavy-duty plastic or paper trash bags or cardboard boxes. Limbs and trimmings that can’t be bagged should be stacked in piles no higher than 4 feet. The maximum size of limbs is 6 feet long and

4 inches in diameter. Larger items should be properly disposed of by the customer or scheduled for a special pickup by calling 891-4YOU (4968). If a special pickup is requested, the fee for collection will be added to the customer’s utility bill.

BULKY ITEMS Bulky items are scheduled for pickup from the curb every other week according the customer’s Red/Blue week schedule. Bulky items are those that are too large to fit in the garbage barrel and are not yard waste. These include furniture, mattresses, bicycles, appliances, swing sets, lawn furniture, barbecue grills and plastic pools. If placed at the curb off schedule, they will be picked up on the next scheduled collection day. Customers may request a special collection to have waste removed prior to the scheduled collection day for a fee. Hazardous waste items that cannot be collected as bulky items include car batteries, paint cans still containing paint, tires and electronics. Other hazardous waste can be taken to the Leon County landfill’s household hazardous waste center.

Vehicle and Voter Registration VOTER REGISTRATION

PHOTO BY OUTLINE205 / ISTOCK / GETTY IMAGES PLUS

Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office LeonVotes.org

Residents may register to vote any time of the year. To register, you must be a U.S. citizen, a Florida resident and in full possession of your civil rights. If you have been adjudicated mentally incapacitated or if you have been convicted of a felony, call the Office of Executive Clemency at (850) 488-2952 to restore your rights. You must be 18 years old to register. You may pre-register if you are 17 or if you have a valid driver’s license before your 17th birthday. To vote in an upcoming election, you must be registered to vote 29 days prior to the day of the election. Changes in political party must also be updated before the registration deadline. Florida is a closed primary state, meaning only voters who are registered members of political parties may vote for their respective party’s candidates in a partisan primary election. Those registered as independents or with minor parties are eligible to vote in primaries that have nonpartisan elections. A universal primary may occur when the only candidates for a public office are of the same political party. In that case, all registered voters in the candidates’ race may participate, regardless of party affiliation. In general elections, all voters may vote for any candidate or question on their precinct-specific ballot. Florida voter applications are available at the Supervisor of Elections’ office at 2990-1 Apalachee Parkway. You may also register to vote at all public schools, libraries, driver’s license offices, public assistance agencies, as well as numerous banks and businesses around

the capital city. Or you can download the registration form from the Supervisor of Elections website, leonvotes.org. There are three ways to vote: by mail with an absentee ballot, early voting prior to the election and on Election Day at the 165 polling locations in Leon County. Absentee ballots are mailed at least 45 days prior to an election and can be tracked by the voter on the Supervisor of Elections website. You can visit the website and with a few keystrokes, know your voter registration status in Leon County. The site offers complete information about upcoming elections, precincts, elected officials and more. Or, call (850) 606-VOTE (8683) for more information.

MOTOR VEHICLES AND LICENSES

Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Express.hsmv.state.fl.us Leon County Tax Collector’s Offices LeonTaxCollector.net

DRIVER’S LICENSE Persons living in Florida who want to operate a motor vehicle on public streets and highways are required to obtain a Florida driver license within thirty (30) days of becoming a resident. Customers are required to present proof of legal name and lawful presence (birth certificate or passport and any legal documents pertaining to name change), social security number (social security card or W2) and two forms of residential address (two pieces of official mail from two different companies). All required documents have

to be originals, no copies. A new resident is exempt from taking any test if they can provide evidence of a driver license issued in another jurisdiction. There are fees associated with all transactions performed. Documentation attesting a change of address for in-state drivers moving to Tallahassee, must be submitted to one of the Leon County Tax Collector’s offices or online at flhsmv.gov within thirty (30) days of a move. VEHICLE REGISTRATION In the state of Florida, motor vehicles are required by law to be registered and titled within 30 days of the owner becoming employed, placing children in school or establishing residency. To obtain a vehicle registration, you will need proof of ownership (original out-of-state or in-state title), Florida insurance and your identification. If you are still making loan payments on you vehicle and your out-of-state title is being held by a lienholder, the current outof-state registration is needed along with the name and address of the lienholder. The Tax Collector’s office will assist you in contacting the lender to obtain the vehicle title. All pre-owned out-of-state vehicles coming into the state of Florida will need a vehicle identification number verification. This verification can be done at the Tax Collector’s office as long as weather permits. Florida license plates are valid until midnight of the owner’s birthday. License plate renewals are accepted ninety (90) days prior to the registered owner’s birth month. Registration fees are assessed according to the weight of the motor vehicle. There are fees to register and title vehicles. For more information, call DHSMV at (850) 617-2000 for assistance. Fortunately, obtaining your Florida driver license, vehicle registration, title, and license plate can all be done at any of the Tax Collector’s offices listed in the ad on page 6 as well as their other services. These locations accept cash, check, and all major credit and debit cards.

Local public schools are under the direction of the Leon County School Board. A wealth of information about local public education and individual schools is available on the district’s website at leon.k12.fl.us. The site includes information on registering new students, as well as an easy-to-use page to determine what school zones you live in. Parents registering a student for the first time should be prepared to provide proof of residence (such as a utility bill), the child’s birth certificate and other identification, proof of immunizations and, if appropriate, transcript information from the child’s previous school. For more information, call (850) 487-7100. You can learn what bus routes serve your area by accessing the school system’s Transportation Department web page.

REGISTRATION Parents with children who will be entering kindergarten or who will be attending public school in Leon County for the first time are encouraged to register their kids during pre-registration, which schools generally hold in late April and/or early May for the next school year. Schools continue taking registrations throughout the summer for new families moving to Tallahassee. In all cases, parents should contact their zoned schools to get the registration process started as soon as possible after securing their residence. Students who will be entering kindergarten must have certain immunization documentation on file at school before the start of the new school year. Students entering seventh grade need documentation of a Td/Tdap booster vaccine. The Leon County Health Department provides routine back-to-school immunizations Monday through Friday by appointment or

at special extended-hour immunization clinics. All children receiving immunizations through the Health Department must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. PUBLIC SCHOOL OPTIONS Leon County also offers a variety of school choice options to provide as many options as possible to maximize student learning. There are a variety of special programs available, such as International Baccalaureate, science, technology and fine arts. Families apply by March 1 of each school year for controlled choice that includes magnet schools and other special programs. Contact the School Choice Office at (850) 487-7546 for more information about attendance zones and choice options. CHARTER SCHOOL OPTIONS Charter Schools are public schools contracting with the district to provide services to students. Leon County has five charter schools. Each offers a unique opportunity and setting. Families can obtain more information about each school by visiting their websites or calling the schools directly. HOME SCHOOLING Families who choose not to send their students to a public school are responsible for all aspects of the education of their students. However, there are a few requirements families must satisfy in order to home educate their children. For example, students must be evaluated annually. The District’s Home School Office can assist families who choose this option. Their number is (850) 561-8375. PRIVATE SCHOOLS Tallahassee is also served by several private schools, which offer education opportunities from preschool through high school.

THE LEROY COLLINS LEON COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY SYSTEM consists of a main library in downtown Tallahassee as well as six branches and a traveling bookmobile. Leon County residents are eligible to apply for a free library card (children under 18 must have a parent or guardian co-signer). The library offers patrons a plethora of services, and many — including requesting and renewing books — are available online. Libraries are located at Tallahassee’s three institutions of higher learning — Florida A&M University, Florida State University and Tallahassee Community College. In addition, the State Library of Florida is located in downtown Tallahassee. It is open to the public and offers an extensive Florida Collection as well as many online resources at dlis.dos.state.fl.us/library. LEROY COLLINS LEON COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY 200 W.

Empathy. A powerful element in fighting cancer. Jeanie Harris has been the caregiver. As a Registered Nurse and an Oncology Certified Nurse with Florida Cancer Specialists, she has spent her career educating, delivering medication, empathizing and holding the hands of her patients. So when Jeanie found a lump in her breast, she knew Florida Cancer Specialists was the place where she would get science-driven care and the personal attention she needed to fight cancer. Now with the experience of being a cancer survivor, she connects with her patients on a deeper level, and she has a fresh perspective on how special each patient feels at Florida Cancer Specialists. “I always knew Florida Cancer Specialists had quality caregivers, but being a patient gave me a fresh perspective.”

Hospital of the Future HCA pioneers advances aimed at improving efficiency, outcomes By Steve Bornhoft

Physicians & Medical Resource Guide | 2018-19

Robinson said. “Conversely, the more you know, the better you are likely to feel about the care you are receiving.” In March, Robinson departed Tallahassee to become the CEO at HCA’s hospital in Salt Lake City. There, MyCare boards have yet to be installed, meaning that conventional dry-erase boards remain in place. Touring the hospital in Salt Lake, Robinson found himself saying about the MyCare boards’ primitive predecessors, “I sure don’t miss those things.” In Tallahassee, Robinson appreciated being able to walk into a room and, at a glance, satisfy himself that a patient had been seen at prescribed intervals and that his pain was being assessed properly. The board displays names of the three hospital employees who last visited a given room and when.

Indeed, when a hospital employee wearing an interactive Smart Badge stops by a room, his or her name and title are displayed on the MyCare board. Some patients may have been flattered or surprised to look up and find that the CEO was taking an interest in their case. The boards are sophisticated enough that patients are introduced to them via an orientation session upon admission. “The boards connect directly to our charting system so that when a nurse begins her shift and logs into a patient record, we don’t have to manually populate anything,” Robinson said. In emergency rooms, Robinson said, the boards “revolve around what all is going on with the patient and how long it is taking. It has the effect of assuring the patient that he

A

man is hospitalized with serious health concerns. But, his condition is stable and caregiving staff convince his wife, who has spent long hours at his bedside, to go home and get some much needed rest. A day later, she returns to her husband’s room only to find that he is not there. Immediately, she assumes the worst: He has died and she never had the chance to say goodbye. Then, as if to confirm her worst suspicion, the patient’s wife consults a large, white electronic board in the room. Her husband is not dead, she learns. He is in radiology. Three hospitals in HCA’s North Florida Division, including Capital Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee and Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City, have been designated “Hospitals of the Future.” They and other hospitals in the division are equipped with integrated MyCare boards, electronic dashboards that pull from patient records and display information pertaining to diet, tests and caregivers. The Hospitals of the Future additionally are employing “Real Time Locating” software. The MyCare boards have been installed in in-patient rooms and in ER intake rooms. They have produced anecdotes including the one involving a patient and his momentarily distressed wife. For Mark Robinson, until recently the CEO at Capital Regional, the boards are “communication devices that relieve anxiety for patients” because they are kept better informed. “The less you know about your situation, the more your attitude is likely to suffer,”


Erica Williams, director of operations for HCA's North Florida division, finds that MyCare boards are a valuable communication tool; the boards display data including the names of the last three persons to have visited a patient room.

“Data is useless without context ... so we have developed applications that make the data meaningful.” Erica Williams, Director of Operations for HCA North Florida Division has not been forgotten about. Information is in their face in real time.” From time to time, a nurse used to the way things were before the future arrived may turn to a patient and say, “Let me go see about the results of your CT scan.” It is the patient who then may remind her that the update she is seeking is on display on the MyCare board. “Clipboards are vanishing,” Robinson said. “You are not going to find doctors pencil whipping a piece of paper like they used to. A lot of time is saved.” Robinson summarized the “Hospital of the Future” effort as one aimed at better care, more efficient care, timely communication, improved asset management and inventory control and, as a byproduct, cost savings. “At Capital Regional, we were pleased

to be selected to help pilot of all this,” Robinson said. “And we are grateful that HCA has had the foresight and the bandwidth to focus these improvements. The new technologies fall directly in line with the mission of the company: ‘Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.’” Robinson said the Florida hospitals involved in trying on the technologies were not merely commanded to implement the new developments. Rather, he said, HCA wanted feedback from users in live settings so that they could better decide whether to install MyCare Boards and other products of the “Hospital of the Future” campaign in its 178 hospitals across the country. The advancements, Robinson stressed,

were substantially pioneered within HCA’s IT departments. “It’s not like we simply purchased proprietary software from others,” he said. Erica Williams, the director of operations for HCA’s North Florida Division, said real-time locating capabilities are central to the Hospital of the Future program. Documentation equals delays, she said, adding “anytime we can make the workflows or our clinicians more efficient, we are helping them spend more time with their patients and contributing to better patient outcomes. “Data is useless without context,” Williams said, “so we have developed applications that make the data meaningful.” Raw, real-time locating data is then employed, for example, in the management of crash carts and other assets. Why were Capital Regional and Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center among the test sites? Proximity to one of HCA’s two group presidents was surely a factor, Robinson allowed. Chuck Hall, who oversees roughly half of HCA’s hospitals, lives in Tallahassee. The MyCare boards — Williams called them a “huge patient satisfier” — are but one of a few advancements that Robinson said have proved welcome and successful, “but, of course, we are continuing to tweak them a little as we experience them.” iMobile is a clinical communication platform driven by smartphone technology. It provides for secure texting and Wi-Fi calling and displays information including nurse

assignments, patient demographics and the results of lab tests. Advanced Nurse Call employs iMobile wireless integration to route and speed up patient calls, which are received by the nurse assigned to a patient versus being routed through an intermediary central nursing station. An InSites Locate App, also designed for use on iMobile devices, displays the location of tagged pieces of equipment including wheelchairs and IV pumps so that they can be swiftly found by the caregivers needing them. Robinson detailed a few of the applications of the iMobile platform. “If I’m a patient and I hit the button because I need help, maybe I need to go to the bathroom, the call doesn’t go to the desk anymore; Hospital physicians and staff are united through the use of iMobile phones. They have all but eliminated announcements made over loudspeakers.

Physicians & Medical Resource Guide 2018-19

it’s going to the nurse’s phone,” Robinson said. “You are getting that nurse immediately. “As the CEO, I had iMobile on my phone and, in the event of an emergency, I could broadcast a message to everyone who was logged into the platform. We had a Code White — an unruly person was inside the hospital — and we wanted to secure all of our entrances and exits. There was a report that the person might be armed with a gun. We sent a code message to the staff on their phones so that they could get it immediately. We didn’t run the risk that they wouldn’t hear the message on speakers and we got the word out without alarming the patients.” (The situation was defused without incident, and there had been no gun.) The locater app works this way … “We have tagged all assets valued at $700 or more: wheelchairs, beds, stretchers, IV pumps,” Robinson began. “If I’m a caregiver and I need a wheelchair, I can get on the computer or my iMobile phone, click on a

tab and see a map that displays where every wheelchair is. This allows for two things. People don’t have to spend a ton of time looking for things. And it also make it less likely that one of these items is going to walk out the door.” Surely, there is a way that the locator technology could be applied to luggage carts in hotels. The technology also lends itself to infection control. “If a patient is admitted,” Robinson said, “and tests later reveal that he has shingles or hepatitis, say, we can use a contact tracing feature of the software and go back and identify every piece of equipment the patient has come into contact with and ensure that it is properly cleaned, along with making sure that staff members receive any treatment they might need.” A hand hygiene monitoring application has been piloted exclusively at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in Panama City. Gulf Coast CEO Brad Griffin explained that interaction between the smart badges worn by staff and monitors in patient rooms and on hand sanitizer dispensers enable the system to know whether hand sanitizing is occurring when a particular staffer enters a room and again when he or she exits. “We use the tool as a way to emphasize the importance of hand sanitation in promoting patient safety and better outcomes and preventing the spread of illness among patients and staff at the hospital,” Griffin said. In such a way, he said, the hospital encourages a positive outlook on the technology versus a perception that it equates to Big Brother invasiveness. In a hospital setting, “improved outcomes” may, of course, mean saved lives. Williams noted an incident involving a nurse who passed by a room and noticed that a patient not assigned to her was positioned at an unnatural angle in his bed. Closer examination revealed that he may have sustained a stroke. In addressing such a case, knowledge of the time of the last known “well” can be critical in determining which protocols to observe and medications to administer. At Capital Regional, arriving at that datum couldn’t have been much simpler. It was right there on the MyCare board. “We know that there are all kinds of potential applications of this technology,” Griffin said. “We have only scratched the surface.”

The Return of House Calls TMH’s telemedicine program connects patients and doctors in new ways By Steve Bornhoft

T

he doctor’s black bag is not on its way back, but house calls, virtually, are. Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare has begun to employ telemedicine, finding that it facilitates the efficient delivery of services to patients spread throughout its 19-county service area. “Simple technologies that we use every day in our personal lives absolutely ought to be embedded in health care,” said Lauren Faison, a TMH service line administrator whose responsibilities include regional development and telemedicine. “Our goal at TMH in using telemedicine is all about being more patient centered and using our physician resources in a more efficient way.”

Through recent decades, health care has revolved around providers. Patients have been expected to go to see their doctor and the next doctor and the next one, in the event that referrals to specialists are made. “The use of technology,” Faison enthused, “spins the situation back to where we can deliver services to the patient when and where he needs it.” In Tallahassee and other cities that serve as regional medical centers, a “tremendous amount” of money, time and effort is devoted to moving people from provider to provider within a five-mile radius. The expense is compounded by the risks associated with transporting patients who may be recovering from

surgeries or other acute health episodes. Stops along routes traveled by ubiquitous vans and buses include nursing homes, rehab hospitals, specialists’ offices and the offices of primary care physicians. “Everyone has had the experience of waiting in a doctor’s office for a followup appointment that may require only a couple of minutes once the doctor enters the examining room,” Faison said. “The doctor sees you, everything is looking good and you’re sent on your way.

MEDICAL Overview

“Our goal at TMH in using telemedicine is all about being more patient centered and using our physician resources in a more efficient way.” Lauren Faison, TMH service line administrator “Now, we can carry out those visits virtually. If I’m at work, I can close my office door, and I can see my doctor without having to leave the office. If that weren’t an option, I might skip the appointment due to the inconvenience involved.” TMH embraced telemedicine in the first place with high-risk patients in mind, people who may lack health insurance or transportation. “We have patients who are in and out of the hospital quite often,” Faison said. “It may be that they don’t know how to manage their health, or they have other challenges. Now, when we have patients who need extra support, we can send them home with a Blue Tooth blood pressure cuff or a Blue Tooth scale and every morning when they get up, the nurse can see that information and react accordingly.” If the nurse finds that Mr. Smith’s blood pressure is climbing, she will alert a doctor who may decide to intervene by scheduling an outpatient visit versus waiting to the point where the patient winds up in the hospital. Telemedicine provides for a hub-andspoke model whereby providers are connected to any number of patients. Faison explained … “It used to be that you had to have very expensive equipment and you had to have T-1 lines to allow for video connections, but now with any kind of Wi-Fi signal and a secure software system and a camera, you can provide health care virtually. If I’m at home and I think my

daughter has pink eye, I can log in, see a physician, and satisfy my co-pay with my credit card, and I don’t have to leave the house.” Telemedicine can be especially valuable in cases involving specialty care. “I’m in Apalachicola and I fear that I may be having a stroke. Instead of waiting for Life Flight to bring me to a neurologist so an assessment can be performed, telemedicine means that assessment can be performed virtually and drugs can be prescribed immediately. Critical minutes are saved. ” While the advantages of telemedicine

may be clear, the question of who will pay for it remains unresolved in Florida. “Unfortunately, we’re way behind,” Faison said. “Twenty miles north of us in Georgia, they have what is called parity legislation for telemedicine. If a commercial health insurance provider will pay for you to see your doctor face to face, and you choose instead to see one virtually, they must also pay for that. We do not have that in Florida.” By Faison’s count, bills related to telemedicine had been introduced in six legislative sessions in Tallahassee through 2017, but none had passed. Sen. Aaron

Lauren Faison, TMH’s administrator of population health and telemedicine, touts the efficiency and convenience of telecommunication.

Bean (R-Fernandina Beach) filed a bill discussed during the 2018 session that provided a framework and definitions for “telehealth,” but did not provide for the kind of reimbursement established in Georgia and other states. The bill survived the Senate but died in the House. Insurance providers are concerned that telemedicine may open the floodgates to more patient-doctor encounters, but TMH is collecting case studies that it believes will demonstrate that telemedicine, because it stands to make preventive care more available, will mean fewer and less costly insurance claims. The Florida State University School of Medicine also is conducting a study in that vein. In any event, telemedicine is happening in Tallahassee and throughout Florida. Patients may elect to pay cash for services delivered via telemedicine. Or telemedicine may be used pursuant to cooperative arrangements between a hospital and clinics. For example, a surgeon with the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic may perform a knee replacement surgery. Following the operation, the patient may be admitted to TMH’s rehab facility located across the street from the hospital. “Historically when it was time for your follow-up visit, we would load you up in a wheelchair, put you in a van, drive you across the street and escort you to the seventh floor so that you could see your surgeon,” Faison said, describing what could be an ordeal for a recovering patient. “With an i-Pad and a $50 web cam, the doctor can inspect sutures, check leg extension, and everyone who is involved in that patient’s rehab can participate: the nurse, a physical therapist, a family member and others.” Indeed, over time, telemedicine may obviate the need for some kinds of appointments. “We are hearing that in other states, some of the busiest clinical practices have empty waiting rooms,” Faison said.

Experience that Makes a Difference Ben J. Kirbo, M.D. ~ Laurence Z. Rosenberg, M.D. ~ Chris DeRosier, M.D. CERTIFIED BY THE AMERICAN BOARD OF PLASTIC SURGERY

Everyone talks about personalized care, but at Southeastern Plastic Surgery, P.A. in Tallahassee, it is exactly the patient experience that makes all the difference. From the moment a patient enters the door, they will encounter a sense of caring that continues throughout their visit. The importance of individualized, personal treatment is at the heart of every patient experience. As the region’s premier choice for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Southeastern Plastic Surgery includes board-certified general and plastic surgeons with unique complementary expertise, skin care specialists and others dedicated to provide outstanding care and service. Dr. Chris DeRosier is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery and brings unique expertise to the region in the areas of free tissue breast reconstruction know as Free TRAM and DIEP flaps. He also brings muchneeded expertise in abdominal wall reconstruction and wound care to this region. Dr. DeRosier’s leadership in these areas has resulted in Southeastern Plastic Surgery becoming a regional referral center for secondary and tertiary abdominal wall reconstruction and limb salvage reconstruction.

“Patients are my number one priority,” said Dr. Ben Kirbo, board-certified plastic surgeon. “They influence the quality of staff and technology, the design of our office and the time we spend to educate our patients about the procedures and services they are considering.” Dr. Ben Kirbo has been practicing in the North Florida and South Georgia area for more than 17 years. He is dedicated to providing unparalleled quality to every patient. A native of Bainbridge, Georgia, Dr. Kirbo received his undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and completed his medical degree at the University of Miami.

Along with Southeastern Plastic Surgery, he was selected as the only local surgical practice to participate in the Florida Melanoma Study.

“At Southeastern Plastic Surgery, we strive to deliver excellent patient care, in a warm, compassionate setting,” said Dr. Laurence Rosenberg, board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Laurence Rosenberg grew up in Albany, New York, and attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, for both college and medical school, where he earned many awards and distinctions. He completed both general surgery and plastic surgery residency. He trained at the University of Alabama under pioneering plastic surgeon, Dr. Luis Vasconez. He is board-certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. As a result of his training and research, he is an editorial board member of the Annals of Plastic Surgery. With a variety of interests and areas of specialization within cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Rosenberg’s areas of focus include facelifts, eyelid surgery, breast reconstruction, breast augmentation and reduction, abdominoplasty, hand surgery, laser treatments of skin disorders and body contouring with particular interest in massive weight loss patients. Dr. Rosenberg is the only board-certified physician in North Florida and South Georgia to perform a unique hair restoration procedure of surgically transplanting individual hair follicular units.

Must-See PARKS The people of Tallahassee and Leon County love their parks — from open green spaces where people gather for special occasions to forests etched with sun-dappled trails. There are scores of places, urban and rural, for getting outdoors. Here are just a few.

1

A.J. HENRY PARK This 72-acre gem amid Killearn’s seven northeast neighborhoods offers a playground, four picnic shelters, a large picnic pavilion, a boardwalk, trails and plenty of shade. It can be accessed from Gardenview Way or Whitney Drive East. CASCADES PARK This is the crown jewel of Tallahassee’s urban parks. Cascades is a green, spacious gathering place for pedestrians, picnickers, festivalgoers and concert fans. At the center of its rolling hills and water features is the Capital City Amphitheatre, hosting national and local bands. The park, just blocks from the Capitol, also includes a lake, monuments, a splash pad, fountains, a playground, shaded coves, multi-use trails and the Smokey Hollow Commemorative Site.

at 4000 N. Meridian Road, this wild, 670-acre tract is one of the largest outdoor recreation sites in Tallahassee, with room for hiking, biking and horseback riding. It also is the site of the annual Red Hills Horse Trials. 170 acres of woodlands, knee-high grass patches, waterways and trails. Ten open acres are dedicated to multipurpose fields for Pop Warner football, regulation baseball, soccer, tennis, disc golf and a dog park.

GOVERNOR’S PARK Hidden in plain sight, Governor’s Park is off Blair Stone Road between Mahan Drive and East Park Avenue. Its gently sloping fields, scattered trees and woodsy trails make it ideal for tossing frisbees and balls to friends or pets. JACK MCLEAN JR. PARK, CENTER & POOL There are 52 acres of fun

at Jack McLean Park, at 700 Paul Russell Road. The park features a swimming pool, picnic shelters, a playground, courts for basketball, tennis and volleyball, horseshoe pits and a 24-hole disc golf course.

LAFAYETTE HERITAGE TRAIL PARK This once continuous wet prairie was parsed by a dam into three sections: Upper Lafayette, Piney Z Lake and Lower Lafayette. It is a wonderful place to fish, bike, run, walk and paddle. The park entrance is at the east end of Heritage Park Boulevard in the Piney Z Plantation subdivision.

PARK AVENUE CHAIN OF PARKS The Chain of Parks is actually a series of seven small urban parks in Tallahassee’s historic Park Avenue district. An April art festival and weekly arts and crafts and food market are held here. It’s a great place to be in the spring, when the rose bushes and azaleas are in bloom. SAN LUIS MISSION PARK Adjacent to the 17th-century museum Mission San Luis, the park features covered picnic pavilions, lots of shade trees, trails around Lake Esther and a playground. Feel free to walk your pooch here.

TOM BROWN PARK Located east of Capital Circle Southeast between Mahan

Drive and Apalachee Parkway, Tom Brown Park is one of Tallahassee’s favorite outdoor playgrounds and hosts the annual Fourth of July fireworks show. It has fields for softball, baseball and soccer as well as a disc golf course, a dog park, tennis courts and lots of other open spaces.

ight streams from Doak S. Campbell stadium, and thousands of voices erupt in the night, not in football cheers and chants, but in song. In a converted feed store, honky-tonk tunes reverberate off exposed-brick walls, and boots stomp hardwood floors. Under a starlit sky in Cascades Park, couples sit close on blankets as they listen to the smooth rock of Train. Beer glasses clink in a bar on Gaines Street as college students sing along to Top 40 covers and Eagles tunes played by an acoustic duo. The next morning, mimosas and eggs Benedict are enjoyed in the presence of a folk-music trio. “Tallahassee’s music scene has exploded in the past few years,” said Kim Morton, representing the concert venue/sports arena at Donald L. Tucker Civic Center. “Tallahassee, itself, has grown immensely over the past five years, which has brought a new generation to this city. We’re in a location that is a desirable stop for touring artists.” Notes are bumping from all quadrants of Tallahassee. CASCADING SCALES At Cascades Park, the crown jewel of the city’s urban parks, college students throw Frisbees on the green space, families picnic by the lake, joggers run by with their dogs, and on sunny days, children frolic on the splash pad. At the heart of the downtown park is the Capital City Amphitheater, a beautiful stage framed in a half dome of white.

The amphitheater draws people together for free concerts, ticketed concerts and theatrical performances. Musical acts have included Train, Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers, Wilco, Jason Isbell, The Beach Boys, Tank, Dawes, Lisa Loeb, Joan Osborne, Boz Scaggs and Peter Frampton. Cascades Park hosts premier events such as the Word of South Festival of Literature & Music and the Southern Shakespeare Festival, which employs a live orchestra. The amphitheater, with 3,500 fixed seats, and the surrounding, blanket-friendly hillside, fills frequently with fans of music, literature and theater. The air is fresh, the crowd is friendly and there is plenty at hand to eat and drink. Learn more at CapitalCityAmphitheater.com. DOAK AFTER DARK Doak S. Campbell Stadium, home stadium of the FSU Seminoles, went without a concert for 30 years. Now, with the addition of the Champions Club, 5,500 more seats and one of the best jumbotrons in the country, it has become a concert destination. This past year welcomed in Salt-N-Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Rob Base and Cole Swindell. Previous names on stage at Doak include Old Dominion, Tyler Farr, Blake Shelton, Jake Owen and Big & Rich. Stay tuned for future concert announcements. FSUkickoff.com

The Avett Brothers performing at the Cascades Amphitheater, where concerts and productions happen almost every weekend in the summer.

UP THE ROAD Between the stadium and downtown is the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center, hosting FSU men’s and women’s basketball and stellar concert performances. The Civic Center has welcomed the likes of Elton John, Drake, Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, Jimmy Buffett, Garth Brooks, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Usher, George Straight, Corey Smith, Earth, Wind & Fire, Alabama, Bon Jovi, Keith Urban and Def Leppard. TuckerCivicCenter.com Another concert icon is The Moon, Tallahassee’s dance central, which has featured headliners such as Bassnectar, George Clinton, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Hall & Oates, The Tempations, Bonnie Raitt, George Strait, Willie Nelson, The Judds, B.B. King, Kenny Chesney, Joe Cocker, Pat Benatar, Billy Preston, Chris Tucker and many more.

TallyPavilion.com National celebrities and stars of the music realm will always attract a crowd and create revenue, but those idols started somewhere — in hometown bars, at county fairs, in writers’ rounds or opening for touring acts. Likewise, Tallahassee nurtures its own fellowship of soon-tobe-famous local musicians. Read on to learn where to hear them now. IN EVERY DISTRICT On the Southside, it’s easy to mistake The Junction at Monroe for a feed store, because that’s exactly what it is — or what it was. “We have taken an 80-year-old feed store and converted it,” explained Russ Pangratz, owner of The Junction at Munroe. “It was originally a rehearsal space for me and my band and other bands, but the acoustics were too good to not do something more with the place.” Pangratz explained he has always “had a heart for musicians.” He began the Tallahassee Area Musicians Guild with fellow board members Barrence Dupree, Russ Hamby and Margie Bertram. The Guild works as a hub for resources and music advocacy, providing a community for local professionals and aspiring amateurs to encourage, teach, learn and share with one another. Mainstage bands come from Atlanta, Nashville, New York City … and The Junction now hosts The Comedy Zone weekly. Pangratz kept the building as original as possible, with exposed brick and concrete floors softened with worn oriental rugs. Fridges with sodas, craft beer and wine line the back wall, stickers from bands have become ingrained in the bar and an impressive collection of CDs and hot sauces are for sale in the lobby. The barbecue and coleslaw are just right. JunctionAtMonroe.com Nestled in the heart of Midtown is Fifth & Thomas Kitchen & Musichouse, where the main course is live music, served with excellent cuisine, local brews and craft cocktails. The Fifth & Thomas concept is exceptionally composed: Don’t make the food, the cocktails and the music compete; instead, have them blend together, forming a beautiful symphony. It’s working, drawing crowds for acts such as Marc Broussard, the Oh Hellos, BJ Barham of American Aquarium and The Currys. Many shows are free. FifthAndThomas.com

North of the city is its oldest music venue, the Bradfordville Blues Club. The BBC has been Florida’s home to authentic blues acts since the segregated years of the Chitlin’ Circuit, a string of venues across the Southeast where black musicians and mixed-race audiences who weren’t welcome in white venues could make music and dance together all night long. Appearances at the rustic, cinder-block juke joint have included such kings and queens of the blues as Bobby Blue Bland, Bobby Rush, Jimmy Rogers, Duke Robillard, Kenny Neal and Big Daddy Kinsey and the Kinsey Report, Johnnie Marshall and a host of others. A tree damaged the BBC in May, but the longtime music mainstay reopened in July of 2018. BradfordvilleBlues.com Within walking distance of Lafayette and Levy parks near Midtown sits the Blue Tavern. Opened in 2016, this hidden gem plays several different notes as coffee house, pub and music venue — including a modest menu with New Orleans-style fare and sandwiches. This laid-back locale also plays host to a bevy of local musicians and performers, ranging from jazz and blues to comedy and film screenings. BlueTavernTallahassee.com

MUSIC MAKES THE WORLD AND TALLAHASSEE GO ’ROUND Bill Wharton, affectionately titled The Sauce Boss, has played the BBC and nearly every club in the Southeast since the late ’60s. His rowdy blues shows and on-stage gumbomaking are his trademarks. With other accomplished locals, such as Pierce Pettis, Del Suggs, Jake Owen and Eric Durrance, The Sauce Boss has seen Tallahassee change and evolve. Like the others, he always returns. “Tallahassee has always been a retreat

for me,” said Wharton. “The kind of place where you can write and explore a creative performance. A great town for an artist. I’ve seen a lot of creative spirit here. It feels good jamming with the young’uns as well as old friends, and welcoming new faces and new venues. It makes for a hoppin’ scene. We keep growing and creating.” Music grows within us, and because it does, it creates emotions. It transports us to a time with someone we love, a loss or even just a fall day when the sun shone a little brighter than usual. Music enhances our intelligence,

as seen in the test scores and creative abilities of those who study it. It soothes those in need of a smile, and it heals. Take, for instance, stroke victims whose voices have been taken, but who suddenly and unexplainably find their words, thanks to music. Music is meant to be heard, yes, but also to be felt. When the stage lights have dimmed, the equipment has been cleared and the musicians are on their way home or heading to the next show, they hope they’ve struck a chord that will resonate long after the last note is played.
