About Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf

Roger Hall, President

The Daughters of Charity, the founders of Sacred Heart Hospital, have been committed to providing high quality, compassionate healthcare for all since arriving in Northwest Florida in 1915. Continuing their mission, we commit ourselves to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.

Our health ministry expanded in March of 2010 with the opening of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf.  Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf now ranks number 4 in the nation in patient satisfaction. (

Since the hospitalís opening in 2010, the facility has expanded to include a Medical Office Building in 2011 which houses physician practices, the womenís center and rehabilitation (physical, occupational and speech therapy).  Additional medical offices have opened in Apalachicola and our newest facility is opening in Wewahitchka in the fall of 2013. 

It is an honor and a privilege to partner with you in this mission, and we invite you to take a closer look at your new community hospital.

Thank you and God bless,

Roger Hall, President
