Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast
Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast is a 58-bed hospital located just east of Destin in Miramar Beach, Florida. Recognized by Thomson Reuters as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals® in 2008, the community hospital offers a wide range of medical and surgical services, including 24-hour emergency care, an intensive care unit, a dedicated joint replacement program, cardiac diagnostics, cancer care, rehabilitation services, laboratory and radiology services, and comprehensive women’s services with the Family Birth Place and the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center.
Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast is a true partnership between the community and Sacred Heart Health System. In 2000, Sacred Heart Foundation partnered with the community to begin raising $20 million for the initial capital campaign to bring the hospital to fruition. The hospital opened in 2003 and has been raising the bar for high quality, compassionate healthcare in our region ever since.
A few years after the hospital opened, the community expressed the need for dedicated women’s services, which led to a $5 million capital campaign to create the Family Birth Place and the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center. Designed specifically with women and families in mind, these services have made a tremendous impact on the community since opening in 2007.
The most recent capital campaign focused on serving the heart of the community with a $5 million initiative to expand Heart & Vascular Services. In order to move forward with this life-saving project, the hospital must install a third generator. Therefore, Sacred Heart Foundation is currently seeking contributions for the $1 million “Generating Capacity” fundraising initiative to pave the way for both expanded Heart & Vascular Services and future growth on the patient care floor of the hospital.
As you can see, great things are happening at our young hospital in Miramar Beach, and we look forward to partnering with you on many more initiatives to ensure access to high quality, compassionate care on the Emerald Coast.
