CMS Regional Genetics Program

As part of a statewide contracted program with Children’s Medical Services (CMS) of the Florida Department of Health, our division serves as the regional referral and evaluation center for children throughout central, north and northwest Florida who have genetic conditions including inborn errors of metabolism (usually identified via the Newborn Screening Program) and birth defects, and whose care is coordinated or otherwise followed under the aegis of CMS.  In order to implement this program, the division operates satellite and telemedicine clinics through the catchment area.
