Florida Hospital North Pinellas, soon to be AdventHealth North Pinellas, partnered with the City of Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority to provide free transportation to medical services for low income seniors in the Tarpon Springs community. All three organizations cut the ribbon on the program, Healthy Hop brought to you by AdventHealth North Pinellas and the City of Tarpon Springs, at Florida Hospital North Pinellas.
