Osceola County program aims to reduce ER visits

Full Story

With the launch of a new program called Phone2Home, the Osceola County health department is taking advantage of the role of EMTs and paramedics to curb unnecessary trips to the emergency room.

Through their database and 911 visits, the fire/rescue team helps identify individuals who visit emergency rooms frequently or are in need of medical or social services and connects them with the health department.

The Florida Department of Health encourages all Floridians to put the flu vaccine between you and the disease this year by receiving your flu vaccination today! Check with your physician, your county health department, or use our Flu Shot Locator to schedule your flu vaccine. Visit for more information on how to be a part of #FluFreeFlorida.
