Publix

Doctors are in short supply, but a new partnership could help patients get a quicker appointment - at their grocery store.

In the coming months, BayCare Health System will be creating "telehealth" centers at  Publix Super Markets in the Tampa Bay area.

Country Fresh

Fresh-cut vegetables are being recalled from grocery, discount and convenience stores across the Southeast because the food may be contaminated with potentially fatal Listeria bacteria.

Publix and Disney are leading an effort in Florida to change the law on figuring medical damages in civil lawsuits, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

They want medical damages to be tied to the amount that is actually paid for treatment, not the amount that is billed. This could lead to millions of dollars in savings in settlements and jury awards, they figure.

Tampa Bay Times

A 90-year-old Pasco County man who managed to drive home after breaking his hip and wrist in a fall at the grocery store discovered after pulling into the garage that he couldn't get out of his car because of his injuries, The Tampa Bay Times reports. 

He was trapped for three days until a neighbor saw him wave his hand and calling for help.
