Care Makes a Difference
Ascension Sacred Heart OB Emergency Care Center
If you have a pregnancy emergency, Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, is prepared to deliver the care that’s right for you and your baby. Our OB Emergency Care Center has the experience and special care you and your baby need. We specialize in caring for pregnant women experiencing premature labor or other distressing symptoms. As the only local hospital in the area with an obstetrician onsite 24/7, women who are in labor or who are experiencing complications are seen by our onsite board-certified OB-GYN at any time.
Our OB-GYN hospitalists don’t take the place of your primary obstetrician, midwife, or family doctor. We work with the OB-GYNs and midwives in our community to provide a safety net for situations when the baby can't wait.
If your baby needs intensive newborn care, we have a Level III NICU onsite. The OB Emergency Care Center is just down the hall from Northwest Florida's only children's hospital, the Studer Family Children's Hospital, where pediatric specialists are ready to provide the care your baby needs. Having an OB Emergency Care Center and our NICU on the same campus means mom and baby can stay close together while receiving advanced care. And, as the region's only children's hospital,pediatric care teams at Studer Family Children’s Hospital treat even the most complex conditions, close to home.
