From the moment you enter the doors, we deliver compassionate care to help you and your loved ones through an emergency.
When your child needs pediatric emergency care, our emergency room provides family-centered care. Children's needs are different from adults, so our doctors and care teams care for kids and their specific needs.
Connected to specialized follow-up care
Your care doesn't stop when you leave the ER. Because we’re more than emergency care, you will be connected to follow-up care to support your care plan and recovery. We connect you to specialists in cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, pulmonology and more. Your care team also helps you manage your medications and sends prescriptions to your local pharmacy or through Ascension Rx. And you will always have access to other services at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast, like imaging and lab.
