    Canceling Appointment for ALL Suncoast Services - A note from CEO Bradley Herremans:
    I’d like to take a moment to thank all of our Patients for choosing Suncoast Community Health Centers for your care.  Our Doctors, Dentists, Pharmacists and all the other incredible providers employed by Suncoast are some of the best at what they do.  I’d like to ask a favor of each of you, please help us out with a difficult issue that we have been experiencing.  No Show Appointments.   As a community health center, access for our patients is very important.  When an appointment goes unused that is one less opportunity for somebody to see one of our providers.  So if you cannot make your appoint please call to reschedule.  That opens up that appointment for somebody else to use.  The number to call to make and to cancel an appointment is:  (813) 653-6100
