Heart Care on the Emerald Coast

In Northwest Florida, Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast gets high marks for our outstanding heart care using life-saving technologies.

Heart and Vascular Care in Destin

At Ascension Sacred Heart we personalize our heart and vascular care for each person’s needs. As the first in the Florida Panhandle to offer hybrid cardiac catherization, the Judy and Steve Turner Heart and Vascular Center continues to bring state-of-the-art heart and vascular care to the community. The hybrid lab adds surgical capabilities to a traditional cath lab so both surgical and minimally invasive procedures can be done during the same surgery. This shortens the overall procedure time, is safer for the patient and improves outcomes.

Other services in the Miramar Beach area include:

  • Life-saving interventional cardiology procedures such as angioplasty and stent implantation to clear blockages in the coronary arteries and improve blood flow to the heart.

  • Treatment for heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutters, rapid heart rates and other arrhythmias.

  • Pacemaker insertions to monitor heart rhythm and regulate heartbeat.

  • Vascular procedures to open blocked arteries to the legs or feet from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and circulatory disorders.

  • Rapid treatment for cardiac emergencies 24 hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year.

  • Cardiac diagnostic studies and procedures, such as stress tests and echocardiograms (ECHO).

  • Cardiac rehabilitation services to help patients return to an active lifestyle as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Our highly skilled cardiologists, cardiac nurses and imaging specialists provide all types of heart care -- from testing to treatment to recovery. For children with congenital heart conditions, pediatric cardiologists from the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart are available to provide care – from the womb into adulthood.

The heart and vascular services at Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast and Ascension Sacred Heart Pensacola are supported by the cardiologists of Ascension Medical Group Sacred Heart, with offices across Northwest Florida.
