Holiday WIC office moves to New Port Richey

HOLIDAY — The Pasco County Health Department has closed its Women, Infants and Children (WIC) location at 2435 U.S. 19, suite 105, Holiday. The closing means that operations and staff will be transferred to another location about 4 miles away at 5640 Main St., Suite 100, New Port Richey.

Health Department spokeswoman Deanna Krautner said the move was an effort to improve efficiency. Having all staff in one place also will create more appointment times for clients, she said. The program provides free infant formula, dairy and other nutritious foods to pregnant women, moms and kids.

Pasco County Public Transportation also serves the new location with bus routes 19 and 14. Call (727) 841-5250 ext. 2000 for more information.
