Better Health Starts Here

Where We’ve Come From

A decade ago, we had the vision for a brick-and-mortar place people could come and ask questions about their insurance. We built our first retail center in 2006 and quickly realized that people in our communities wanted more—so we added a staff of nurses who could answer questions about things like blood pressure and diabetes.

Since that first center opened, 21 more retail locations have popped up around the state. And every day the people there have working tirelessly to fulfill our mission: to help people and communities achieve better health.

As health care has evolved, we’ve recognized a need to push the envelope on retail health. And now our Tampa and Winter Park retail centers have been reinvented to take on the future.

Where We’re Going

If you’re lucky enough to live near our Winter Park and Tampa (Westshore) locations, stop by and be prepared for a sensational show! We are hosting a grand re-opening, this Saturday May 20th from 10 a.m-2 p.m.  Join us to see what's new. 

Inside, you’ll find stations like the Wellness Discovery Zone, where you can touch and try on the latest technology like fitness trackers, stress reduction devices, glucose meters, and blood pressure monitors. Use one of our brand-new tablets to test-drive the latest health apps before you download them to your own phone!

And throughout the year, plan on attending events put on by community organizations like the YMCAs of Central Florida and the Suncoast — held in our state-of-the-art meeting space featuring a Microsoft Surface Hub®.

We’re here for the people of Florida, right in the neighborhood. The Florida Blue Center is the place to go for inspiration, motivation and advice. We want to help you with every aspect of your health, because better health starts here.

From the major challenges to everyday moments in between, we strive to become a trusted health partner, adding real value to everyday health conversations.
