Premier Community Health Care Group Inc., will share clinic space with the Florida Department of Health in New Port Richey, and will provide dental services to insured and uninsured children throughout Pasco County.
The Pasco County Commission approved a lease agreement between the county and the health care agency at its Nov. 17 meeting.
In lieu of rent, commissioners will require an annual report each Oct. 1 detailing the number of children served. Premier Community Health Care also will pay $421 a month as its share of utilities.
The lease expires on Dec. 31, 2021. However, there are three one-year options to extend the lease.
The clinic is located in Building A, 10841 Little Road, in New Port Richey.
County commissioners agreed to the lease at the request of health department officials “to ensure dental services continue for school-age children throughout the county,” according to agenda documents.
