Southeastern Center for Infectious Diseases (SCID) is proud to be celebrating 10 years in business in the Tallahassee community. SCID opened their doors on September 3, 2006 with just one provider and dedication to serving this community.

Fast forward 10 years and SCID now has three physicians and two nurse practitioners, as well as 10 support staff. “We are so grateful to Tallahassee for their on-going support of our clinic and of our staff,” says Dr. Philbert Ford, managing partner and founder of SCID.

Southeastern Center for Infectious Diseases will be celebrating this business milestone with “10 Days of Giving to 10 Non-Profits”. Leadership asked all staff what they are passionate about and came up with a list of 10 charities that will receive a gift from the office. The local chapter of the American Red Cross was the first recipient of a $500 donation. “The work the Red Cross did during Hurricane Hermine was amazing, so we felt they should be the first charity we reached out to,” said Patricia Ballantine, Practice Manager. The SCID facebook page will be posting all month long about the non-profits selected and other 10-year anniversary activities.
