ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - Alachua County's CHOICES Health Services program has partnered with FloridaWorks to provide one stop access to CHOICES enrollment. FloridaWorks Gainesville One Stop, located at 4800 SW 13th St., will host a CHOICES Health Services staff member on Mondays from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.  CHOICES staff will be available to answer questions about program services and receive applications for enrollment.
FloridaWorks Gainesville One Stop provides assistance and job training to those seeking employment or career changes.  Employers also come to Gainesville One Stop to recruit employees.  "Many people look forward to the benefit of obtaining health coverage from employers," says the FloridaWorks One stop Center Manager. "Unfortunately, for some of our residents, that is simply not the case.  We want to put people in touch with organizations that fill this void."  Lorraine Austin, CHOICES Health Services Director, adds, "This partnership will make CHOICES program information and enrollment more accessible to individuals the program is designed to serve.
CHOICES Health Services is committed to providing quality healthcare to Alachua County's working uninsured.  To date, the program has provided medical and dental services to more than 1700 Alachua County residents.  For more information about eligibility or to apply for CHOICES, visit or call 352-264-6772.  For more information about FloridaWorks call (352) 955-2245 or visit
