The Studer Family Children's Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart is Northwest Florida's only facility dedicated to the medical needs of infants and children. Now, the families we serve can take comfort in the fact that the care Sacred Heart offers regionally is also backed by the largest academic health center in the Southeast – University of Florida (UF) Health, recognized among the nation's best hospitals by US News and World Report in nine children's medical specialties.
Through our affiliation with UF Health, Ascension Sacred Heart is staying on the leading edge of children's healthcare, providing:
- More subspecialty services to the children of Northwest Florida
- Access to some of the most specialized pediatric programs for a wide range of complex conditions
- Access to cutting-edge treatments and research only found in large academic health systems
Together, Sacred Heart and UF Health can provide specialized medical care to more critically ill children with faster response times and an expanded geographic reach.
