Located on Second Avenue SW, just around the corner from its present West Bay Drive site, the state-of-the-art medical facility will provide comprehensive medical care with specialties that include outpatient care and on-site testing.

Teresa Brydon, Largo's economic development director, also will update other projects in the city's designated medical arts area, which includes portions of the West Bay Drive and Clearwater-Largo Road Redevelopment Districts.

Seminar explores employee cutbacks

"Dealing with Terminations, Layoffs/Reductions in Force and Unemployment Compensation" is the next topic in a continuing human resource seminar series presented by the Largo/Mid-Pinellas Chamber of Commerce and the Human Resources Factor LLC. It will take place from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the chamber, 151 Third St. NW, Largo. Cost is $25.

The program will examine how to determine when terminating an employee is the best option; taking the right steps toward addressing and documenting performance and conduct issues; understanding the difference between voluntary and involuntary terminations; and understanding who is eligible for unemployment compensation and how to respond to a claim.
