Health is everything. How you feel and function on a daily basis dictates all facets of life. That’s why choosing a retirement destination with outstanding healthcare is paramount. Tallahassee checks that box thanks to its top-ranked HMO and award-winning hospitals.

Capital Health Plan is the only local HMO in Tallahassee. Their member services and administrative professionals are local as well, making CHP customer service swift and convenient.

For even more streamlined care, CHP features two of their own clinical facilities, where physicians, nurses, and allied healthcare professionals, directly employed by Capital Health Plan, provide coordinated care for CHP members. Outside of these complexes, CHP hosts an extensive network of affiliated primary and specialty care physicians who provide care to members in their own offices, located throughout the service area.

Insurance Providers

Capital Health Plan (CHP) is a distinct medical resource that has served Tallahassee locals for over 30 years. As a nationally recognized HMO, CHP provides comprehensive and coordinated medical care for a fixed, prepaid fee with predictable copayments and no deductibles. This prepaid fee covers members’ health care needs from routine physicals to hospitalization. CHP health plans are available for employer groups and Medicare eligible individuals.




Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare (TMH) is a private, not-for-profit healthcare system committed to transforming care, advancing health, and improving lives throughout North Florida and South Georgia. The facility is comprised of a 772-bed acute care hospital, a psychiatric hospital, and regionally renowned specialty care centers, including heart and vascular, stroke, cancer, and neurosurgery programs. As a winner of the National Research Corporation’s Consumer Choice Award for 10 consecutive years, TMH maintains an unparalleled reputation in Tallahassee thanks to superb patient care and community outreach programs to extend health beyond hospital walls.

Capital Regional Medical Center is committed to the care and improvement of human life. The center is a fully accredited, 266-bed acute care hospital that offers specialty treatment and 24/7 emergency services for Leon and Gadsden Counties. Capital Regional’s ER boasts the shortest average wait times in the area and a Senior Care Emergency Room, featuring free valet parking, a separate area for a more peaceful setting, softened lighting, state-of-the-art stretchers, and an interdisciplinary team of expert professionals knowledgeable in the field of geriatric care.

Veterans Affairs

The newly constructed Tallahassee Health Care Center (THCC) serves acutely and chronically ill eligible veterans. THCC provides a broad range of general and specialized services (including medical, dental, surgical, and psychiatric) and recognizes that the veteran patient population requires a complexity of care, ranging from minor needs to urgent care.

If a veteran requires hospitalization, THCC will stabilize and transfer the patient to a local facility or to the Gainesville VA Medical Center located two hours Southeast of Tallahassee.
