WELCOME TO TALLAHASSEE 2017-18 TALLAHASSEE NEWCOMER GUIDE

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

PHOTOS COURTESY GILLUM AND LINDLEY

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. Sincerely,

Mary Ann Lindley Chairman Leon County Board of County Commissioners

WELCOME TO TALLAHASSEE 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, represented since Jan. 3, 2017, by Republican Neal Dunn. Florida’s two U.S. senators are Democrat Bill Nelson, since 2001, and Republican Marco Rubio, since 2011. • Historians suspected that Hernando de Soto wintered in Tallahassee in 1539 during his explorations, and in 1987 a state archaeologist, the late B. Calvin Jones, pinpointed and excavated the site. About a mile away from the Capitol building, it is the only site in the U.S. definitively associated with the de Soto expedition.

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 seven times in the past 120 years. The most snow, 2.8 inches, fell in February 1958, and the last time it snowed was in December 1989, when 1 inch fell.

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 Newcomers 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

Historic Florida Capitol

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 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 Kleman Plaza on Fridays before home games for the Downtown Getdown and 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, softball, tennis, soccer, swimming, cross-country running, and even 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 Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, Peter Frampton and Dawes. Opening Nights Performing Arts, which recently hosted Lily Tomlin, Smokey Robinson and Chris Botti, presents a new series every year, as does the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, which performs a free Halloween concert in Cascades Park and recently hosted Renee Fleming. Yes, Smokey Robinson and Renee Fleming, same year, right here.

Spend a few afternoons touring Goodwood Museum & Gardens and Pebble Hill Plantation, two of the Red Hills region’s once-vast 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 segregated days of the Chitlin’ Circuit. 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.

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.

BULKY ITEMS

Bulky items are scheduled for pickup from the curb every other week according the customer’s Red/Blue week schedule.

VEHICLE AND VOTER REGISTRATION

VOTER REGISTRATION

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 in the Bank of America building, just behind the Leon County Courthouse, at 315 S. Calhoun St., Suite #110. 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 on-line 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 out-of-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 8 as well as their other services. These locations accept cash, check, and all major credit and debit cards. 2017–18 Tallahassee Newcomer

ocal 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) 487-7804. 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 http://dlis.dos.state.fl.us/library.

MEDICAL OVERVIEW

Neurosurgeons Dr. Adam Oliver, left, and Dr. Matthew Lawson inspect images in a cath lab at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, where they helped introduce a “coiling” technique for arresting blood flow to aneurysms.

BUILDING THE TEAM Wave of new physicians reflects TMH’s commitment to excellence By Steve Bornhoft THE CALL CAME IN DURING A SHIFT CHANGE. At 5 in the morning on July 2, 2016, a bus carrying migrant farm workers and members of their families sailed through a blinking red light at the Woodville Highway’s intersection with U.S. Highway 98 and slammed into a tractor-trailer rig carrying a load of munitions. Wakulla County and Leon County ambulances carrying a dozen seriously injured persons would be arriving soon at the Bixler Trauma & Emergency Center on the Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare campus at Magnolia Drive and Miccosukee Road. Personnel who were about to depart for the day were ordered to stay, ensuring that the center would have double the usual complement of nurses and technicians on hand to address an emergency of a sort that is often addressed in faux catastrophe exercises, but is not often real.

Physicians & Medical Resource Guide 2017–18

Dr. Devin Bustin, three years removed from his residency at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, was on duty when it became clear that the Bixler ER was about to become a M.A.S.H. unit. Bustin took a call from the senior manager at Leon County EMS. Immediately, he recognized the voice. Steve Suarez and Bustin attended the same high school in South Florida. In short bursts, Suarez told Bustin what he knew about the accident scene to which he was hurtling. “Sixty to 70 people on the bus. Fire. No seat belts. It’s a mess. No one speaks English. Expect at least 20 traumas.” In response, Bustin initiated TMH’s mass casualty protocol. “It brings in resources from the rest of the hospital,” Bustin explained. “We called all the residents down. We called the ER doc who was due in at 6.


PHOTO COURTESY TMH/KIRA DERRYBERRY PHOTOGRAPHY (BUSTIN) AND TMH/DAVE BARFIELD

We called in the trauma medical director, Dr. Jeffrey Crooms; a trauma surgeon, Dr. (Shelby) Blank; a neurosurgeon, Dr. (Adam) Oliver; an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. (Hector) Mejia. Everyone was a on a short leash.” Before the first patient arrived, a system was in place. Bustin would triage cases as they came in through the ambulance bay, determining if they needed immediate attention or could wait 10 or 20 minutes and directing them where they needed to go. Residents performed procedures including sewing up lacerations. The orthopedist went from room to room setting fractured bones. “An anesthesiologist came down and put a breathing tube in one of my patients because I was doing a chest tube in another room,” Bustin recalled. It was, Bustin said, controlled chaos. “But a lot of things went right,” Bustin said. “We even had four people close at hand who speak Creole — a cleaning lady, a registration tech, a Red Cross volunteer and a trauma resident who had started with us just a day earlier. The Wakulla collision occurred less than a month after the massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, an event that led Bustin to ask himself how TMH would do in response to a similar situation. “Everyone got appropriate care,” Bustin reflected. “No one had a bad outcome due to something being neglected or missed and that is remarkable when you have that kind of an influx. I mean, we had a plan in place, but that doesn’t guarantee that things are going to go well. I was pleased.” Tested, the community that is TMH came together in service to the larger community in a way that validated decisions made by talented young physicians to make Tallahassee their home. Four of those physicians are profiled here. DEVIN BUSTIN, M.D. For Devin Bustin, who completed undergraduate studies (psychology) and attended medical school at the University of Florida, Tallahassee always had been enemy territory. So it was that Bustin, when he learned that Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare had an opening for an emergency room physician, decided to interview for the job “just for the experience.” Or so he thought. Instead, that interview experience would sell him on TMH. Bustin had completed his residency at the Carolina Medical Center, one of the top-five busiest trauma centers in the country and home to doctors who “wrote the books on emergency medicine.” “I could have gone anywhere,” Bustin said. He began to consider TMH seriously when he found himself interviewing not just with a doctor or

two, but with the hospital’s CEO and chief medical officer. He was impressed by their pledge to stay out of physicians’ way and let them “do the right thing.” And he was excited by their willingness to help him establish at the hospital an ultrasonography program — “basically, it’s using an ultrasound machine at bedside to rapidly obtain information to guide your case management.” “What cutting-edge facilities do best is cuttingedge stuff. A doctor treats you for a condition that he discovered and named. We do the bread-and-butter stuff and more very well and meanwhile we’re very close to the cutting edge. When we have that rare bone tumor, we’ll transfer you, but otherwise, we’re all you could ask for.” MATTHEW LAWSON, M.D. Dr. Matthew Lawson displayed a device that essentially resembles a miniaturized plumber’s snake. Called a microcatheter, it is actually a delivery device that is inserted in the femoral artery in a thigh and run up into the brain. Upon arrival there, it is used to place tiny platinum coils in unruptured aneurisms. Several coils may be delivered, forming concentric circles that cause an aneurism to clot off. The procedure, developed in the 1990s, has through recent years mostly replaced the earlier practice of entering the brain through the skull and clipping aneurisms. Repeated studies have established that coiling consistently produces better outcomes than clipping. Coiling was introduced to Tallahassee in 2012 thanks largely due to the efforts of Lawson, an endovascular neurosurgeon. Practicing in Gainesville, where he had attended medical school and completed his residency and fellowship, Lawson found that many of his candidates for coiling were North Florida residents. On that basis, he perceived the need for his subspecialty in Tallahassee and began discussions with the neurological clinic here and with Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare. “I met with (TMH CEO) Mark O’Bryant and he assured me that the hospital was interested in building a room for endovascular work,” Lawson said. “So, the hospital wanted to do it and the clinic wanted to do it and, while I didn’t have anything in writing and we’re talking about a $3 million project, I committed to moving here and Mr. O’Bryant lived up to his word.” Lawson regards Tallahassee as a big little town when it comes to medicine. “New techniques and new producers come along and most community hospitals are slow adopters, but that’s not true at TMH,” Lawson said. “We recently became licensed as the only comprehensive stroke center in the region. We’re incredibly busy and we’re doing good things for people from Pensacola to Dothan to half of the way to Jacksonville.”

Adam Oliver, M.D.

Dr. Greg Hartlage

ADAM OLIVER, M.D. As a student of history, Dr. Adam Oliver – at this writing, he is reading a large tome on the lives and times of the Apalachee Indians – may have been especially susceptible to a parallel offered him by a neurologist he met while attending the medical school at Louisiana State University. For Oliver, who grew up as the son of a physician, the language of doctoring has been part of his vernacular since childhood. Medicine always has been approachable; he never considered that it was something he could not do and, for a long while, he assumed he would be a family-practice doctor, just like dad. (Whit Oliver practiced in Blountstown when Adam was in elementary school and continues to practice in Tallahassee.) Oliver, however, was to become fascinated with neuroscience when he observed at LSU a Parkinson’s patient undergoing deep brain stimulation, a procedure that had the effect of restoring the patient’s ability to speak. “I saw that and I said, ‘That’s what I want to do,’” Oliver recalls. But the prospect of neurosurgery was intimidating. He was warned that the specialty can be consuming. Dr. Jose Bermudez, who Oliver counts as a chief mentor along with his father, would cure the student’s reluctance with a story about Cortez. “Cortez’s troops were so diseased and sick and afraid of the Indians that they were going to mutiny,” Oliver began to repeat Bermudez’s story. “He was on the beaches at Vera Cruz and they were going to start their march to Mexico City and there were some Indians who were willing to help them. But the troops were afraid they were going to die there and wanted to return to Spain. So Cortez got up in the middle of the night and he burned his own ships. “If you want to become a neurosurgeon, burn your ships.” That, Oliver said, is some of the best advice he ever received. “Faced with adversity, you don’t dig trenches that you can fall back into,” he said. DR. GREG HARTLAGE Dr. Greg Hartlage is an image maker, not that he has anything to do with public relations. Rather, he works in cardiovascular imaging, a specialty that may prevent the need for cardiac procedures and ensures that surgeries, when they do become necessary, are a lot less invasive than they used to be. Hartlage is a Tallahassee native whose father, a family practice physician here, encouraged his son to go

10

Physicians & Medical Resource Guide 2017–18

to law school. But Hartlage always has been of a mind to defy his father’s wishes, even if that meant following in dad’s footsteps. For his rebellious nature, his patients might well be grateful. The tools of Hartlage’s trade are cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography and ultrasound machines. He turned to CT to illustrate what imaging can do for patients and their doctors. CT, he said, has provided an alternative to invasive cardiac catheterization. Now, it’s possible to assess plaque buildups without having to admit a patient to the hospital and run a tube into his heart. “We just put an IV in the arm, you lay on the scanner, we inject some dye and, in 30 to 45 minutes, you’re gone and we can look at the whole heart, inside and out — and we’ll have more information than a heart cath would supply,” Hartlage explained. Lots of people, Hartlage said, may experience symptoms that they fear may be attributable to heart disease — or they may result from acid reflux or a pulled muscle. “CT is a good way to prove that either a person has nothing to worry about or that he has plaque levels that have advanced to a point where preventive measures — diet, lifestyle, exercise, cholesterol medicine, aspirin — are warranted,” Hartlage said. “People need to know.” In asymptomatic patients, Hartlage employs a screen that looks for calcium, a marker for plaque. “A calcium score of zero puts you at an exceedingly low risk of developing any cardiac problems over the next five to 10 years,” Hartlage explained. In working with the structural heart team at TMH, Hartlage uses CT to precisely determine the size of a value that needs replacing. No longer is it necessary for a surgeon to cut through the chest, open the heart, remove the bad valve and take measurements. “That’s pretty cool,” Hartlage said with characteristic reserve. But he does not disguise his enthusiasm for TMH, its relationship with his employer, the Southern Medical Group, and its commitment to supplying doctors with the best tools available. “For a city of its size, Tallahassee is an exceptionally advanced place and TMH has put a lot of resources into keeping it that way with a ‘build it and they will come’ philosophy,” Hartlage said. “We get patients referred here from Gainesville.” n

BRINGING DOCTORS TO TOWN Community needs guide hospital’s recruitment efforts By Kim Harris Thacker THEY’VE LIVED THROUGH NATURAL AND ECONOMIC DISASTERS. They’ve waded into political and social turmoil. They’re energetic and proactive, but they’re also cautious and maybe even a little tight-fisted. They’re millennials, and they love Tallahassee. From boardrooms to emergency rooms, companies throughout Florida’s capital city are benefiting from the tenacity, compassion and maturity that characterize the wave of vibrant 30-somethings that has descended upon our corner of the Big Bend. Mark Robinson, president and CEO of Capital Regional Medical Center, says that the hospital receives “myriad resumes from young physicians who are coming out of their residencies and fellowships.

Some of them grew up in Tallahassee and are looking to come back home; some are not satisfied with their current situations; some are looking to settle in a city where they know they can live for the rest of their lives. Tallahassee presents itself as a place where you can have a great lifestyle without the headaches that come with living in bigger cities.” Heather Lowery, physician recruiter for the North Florida division of Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), of which Capital Regional is a subsidiary, agrees that Tallahassee is an up-and-coming community; but the city’s appeal isn’t the only thing that is important to physicians who are hoping to settle down.

Dr. Castro to the area, Lowery replies that she doesn’t care for the word, “obstacles.” “I like to think in terms of ‘opportunities,’” she said. “Yes, we’re experiencing a physician shortage in this part of the country. Less people are going to medical school and less are graduating from residency programs; but our parent company, HCA, is addressing this shortage by creating more residency programs.” Dr. Bruce Deighton, HCA’s Vice President of Graduate Medical Education, is quoted on the company’s website as having said, “As the nation faces a worsening physician shortage, it’s vitally important that medical school graduates have access to quality residency programs. At HCA, we are using our scale and expertise to support sustainable pipelines of superior, patient-centered physicians who will care for our communities for generations to come.” The Nashville-based company’s “Training Program Outreach” assists residents and fellows with the transition from medical training to medical practice by offering them financial assistance along with seminars on the business side of medicine. Hospital Corporation of America’s commitment to excellence is echoed at Capital Regional. “We want people to be comfortable and to trust their physician at all times, but especially when they’re injured or sick,” Robinson says. “It’s at those times when they are the most vulnerable.” A positive experience, whether during an operation or a routine checkup in the clinic, is a physician’s best form of advertising. “When people are looking for a physician, they do two things,” Robinson says. “One, they ask people for recommendations. And two, they go to the internet and check ratings. The quality of the health care we provide at Capital Regional Medical Center speaks for itself.” n

HEALING TOGETHER A family doctor and nurse reveal the secrets of their 32-year working relationship. By Jason Dehart TALLAHASSEE MEMORIAL HEALTHCARE casts a giant shadow over the tiny medical office at the corner of Centerville Road and Hodges Drive. But it’s not big enough to eclipse the doctor and nurse team that have been treating patients here for more than 30 years, at Tallahassee Memorial’s Family Medicine Residency program.

Actually, Dr. Donald Zorn and Jodi Strong, RN, are more than a team. They’re more like sidekicks who get the job done but aren’t above an occasional goodnatured ribbing. “We like to make fun of each other,” said Zorn, 66, a soft-spoken family doc originally from Georgia. “But I think it’s a way for us to kind of cut the tension. We make

“When we’re looking to attract physicians, we talk about the growth of the hospital and how we keep up with technological advancements,” says Lowery. “We also talk about community involvement and the number of patients we serve. We have a busy ED (emergency department), which physicians like to hear.” The life of a doctor won’t always be busy days in the emergency room, but Robinson and his colleagues at Capital Regional have a plan for that, too: “We’ve developed an attrition plan for all of our doctors, which means we work directly with them to help them plan their future. This helps us plan for the hospital’s future, which then helps us know the future of the entire community.” And at Capital Regional, it’s all about the community. “Everything we do from a recruitment perspective, especially when it comes to physicians, is based on community need,” Lowery says. “It’s our goal to keep patients in Tallahassee, so they don’t have to travel to find quality health care, and to provide patients with the best care possible.” Keeping patients in Tallahassee is one reason why Capital Regional recently opened Capital Regional Medical Care, a primary care clinic located in the Bannerman Crossings shopping center in north Tallahassee. The clinic takes walk-ins and has extended hours, since, as Robinson puts it, “Life extends beyond Monday through Friday, nine to five.” Currently serving at the new clinic are Dr. Brian Allen, who specializes in family medicine; nurse practitioner Lynn Steele; and a new hire: pediatrician Dr. Maci McDermott. The new clinic is not the only Capital Regional facility that has benefited from recent hires. Family practice physician Dr. Shamil Castro joined Capital Regional Medical Group at SouthWood in October. When asked about the challenges that arise while recruiting young physicians like Dr. McDermott and

fun of each other, even in front of patients. I think it helps for them to see that, and I often ask a patient, ‘Do you know any good nurses I could work with?’” Strong, 61, Zorn’s nurse manager, laughs at the running gag. “You’ve been trying to trade me off for years. I frighten other nurses away, so you’re stuck with me,” she said with a grin. The amiable pair has been a team since Zorn first came to TMH back in 1984. Zorn tends to the patients’ needs while Strong works diligently to make sure everything runs smoothly with schedules, nurses and residents. She was already working for TMH and was assigned to Zorn when he started practicing there. “My job involves keeping the old man out of trouble,” she said. “He strives to keep me busy and out of trouble.” Joshing aside, there’s a mutual admiration at work between doctor and nurse. Zorn said Strong’s lighthearted and good-natured personality provides a welcome calm in what can, at times, be a frustrating profession. “I’m known for my temper, and Jodi is very evenkeeled,” he said in a quiet, self-deprecating manner. “So when I’m having a hard day and I get frustrated at certain aspects of the medical system and the regulatory burden that seems to increase on physicians and

nurses … she’s able to smooth that over. She just stays positive, and she looks for a way out of it. So we get through it.” Strong said it’s a great comfort to her that Zorn is a knowledgeable, down-to-earth physician. She also said he has a better demeanor than he gives himself credit for. “When you work with someone that you know is extremely knowledgeable, you don’t have to question anything because you know it’s always right,” she said. “He’s awesome to work with. He’s very human. And he’s forgiving. When I do all these ‘bad things’ he finds a way to fix it. So that makes life so much easier.” Zorn, meanwhile, said that when it comes to “bad things,” he, not Strong, is the primary culprit. “She’s maybe done two bad things in 30 years. I do two bad things a day,” he said. “She’s an exceptional nurse. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many wonderful nurses both here and elsewhere; but she’s very smart, works very hard — she’s very dedicated. She’s very loyal, conscientious, and she has this sense about her that just seems so good. Everybody around her senses that, too. She has such an optimistic and positive attitude toward life, and a big, caring heart … and a willingness to forgive the doctor she works with. No doctor can make it through the day without a good nurse, and I can’t make it through the day without this one.” n

If you see Dr. Donald Zorn and RN Jodi Strong while at Tallahassee Memorial’s Family Medicine Residency Program, know you’re in good hands: The two have worked together for more than 30 years.

WHY A NEUROSURGEON IS THE RIGHT CHOICE When surgery is the best course of treatment for your condition, you can be assured that whenever possible, our neurosurgeons will offer surgical procedures that are minimally invasive, resulting in smaller openings and scarring, shorter recovery times, less operative pain, and shorter hospital stays—with most patients going home the same day. Our neurosurgeons are advanced specialty-care physicians who have completed lengthy training programs focused on surgery of the back, neck, and brain. Among all medical specialties, the field of neurosurgery provides the most comprehensive education and experience in spine care. Although most people think of neurosurgeons as “brain surgeons,” you might be surprised to know a majority of the operations our surgeons perform are spine surgeries. We are committed to being leaders in new cutting-edge technologies and use the most advanced in spine surgery techniques, including minimally invasive procedures. In addition, each neurosurgeon participates as an investigator in multi-center, national and international

clinical trials in an effort to continue to advance the practice of neurosurgery and offer new and innovative therapies that are not offered elsewhere in the area. Patient satisfaction is paramount to our practice. We aim to educate our patients and families about your condition and course of treatment. Our clinic staff will welcome your questions and concerns, and every effort will be made to ensure your confidence in your neurosurgeon. It is our goal to meet or exceed your expectations. Our quality data and patient satisfaction surveys are available on our website. Our surgeons offer care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you become a patient of one of our physicians, you can be confident that should any complications arise, one of our physicians will be there to take care of you.

Fighting Cancer is hard enough. When you are fighting cancer, the last thing you need is a road trip. All too often, fighting cancer turns into life on the road — traveling to this treatment or that specialist or the next procedure.

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.

10 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, honkytonk 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 soulful croon of Alabama Shakes. 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 amphitheather draws people together for free concerts, ticketed concerts and theatrical performances. Musical acts have included 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. MUSIC ALLEY Across town from Cascades Park, music drifts from The Pavilion, one of our largest music venues, nestled within a transformed, nowopen-air shopping mall: Centre of Tallahassee. With The Pavilion at its core, music acts as the Centre’s heartbeat. The Pavilion is a spacious, covered area that can fit 10,000 seats, has the same sound system that Madonna uses and is cooled with 15 gigantic fans. The Pavilion has hosted performers such as Rascal Flatts, Blink-182, Sublime with Rome, Taking Back Sunday, The Steve Miller Band, Jennifer Nettles, Blackberry Smoke and Alice Cooper. Next up: Styx and Kansas. Check out the enormous wall murals while you’re there.

THINGS TO DO 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. First on stage, in November 2016, was Old Dominion, Tyler Farr and Bobby Bones and the Raging Idiots, playing a sold-out show. The following April, Doak hosted superstar Blake Shelton, Jake Owen and Big and Rich. Stay tuned for future concert announcements. FSUkickoff.com

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 98

The barbecue and cole slaw 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

Tallahassee.MoonEvents.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-to-be-famous local musicians. Read on to learn where to hear them now.

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 the 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, Big Daddy Kinsey and the Kinsey Report, Big Jack Johnson, E.C. Scott, Eddie Kirkland, Johnnie Marshall, Darryl Nulisch, Sandra Hall, Ms. Lavelle White, Son Seals and a host of others. BradfordvilleBlues.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 gumbo-making 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.
