A Senior-Focused Primary Care Center in Duval County

Florida Blue, and Sanitas Medical Center (Sanitas) have opened an innovative primary care health center in Jacksonville focused on supporting the area’s Florida Blue members who are 50+ and/or Medicare members. The center’s comprehensive and high-touch care model brings together the primary care services adults need in one location by providing preventive primary care, onsite pharmacy dispensing, chronic condition management, mental health services, labs and imaging, and a community space for patient and community education, social engagement and wellness classes and activities.

“At Florida Blue, we pride ourselves on being a health solutions company, which means understanding each member’s unique needs and providing appropriate solutions to help them thrive. This is especially important for older adults as health care needs can increase with age.”

Pat Geraghty, President and CEO of GuideWell and Florida Blue.

“Through the innovative model we have developed with Sanitas, we are providing customized, accessible, and harmonized primary care solutions to members to help them live healthier lives.” Using a four to five person care team for each patient, Sanitas tailors services to meet patient needs, and provides access to nurses who specialize in different conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, as well as nutritionists and social workers. 

In Florida, there are more than 4.9 million Medicare-eligible adults, and that number continues to grow. The U.S. Census figures note that by 2030, older Americans will make up 21 percent of the population. 

According to data from the American Psychological Association, by 2060, the number of people aged 65 and older in the U.S. is projected to double from 46 million to more than 98 million, marking the first time in history that the number of older adults will outnumber children under age 5.  

Sanitas is located in the Regency area at 9400 Atlantic Boulevard, Suite 11, 32225. For more information, call 1-844-665-4827 or visit
