Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola has long been the area’s leader in surgical services. We performed the area’s first open heart surgery in 1972 and we opened the area’s first outpatient surgical center in 1980. Surgeons at Sacred Heart also performed the region’s first minimally invasive surgeries to remove the gallbladder and appendix. More recently, we have been recognized for our excellent patient outcomes in the areas of gynecologic surgery, bariatric surgery, neurosurgery and vascular surgery.

Today, our skilled surgical teams work in state-of-the-art operating rooms equipped with the latest diagnostic and surgical equipment. We perform approximately 20,000 inpatient and outpatient surgeries a year. New technologies and new less invasive techniques are constantly being introduced into our surgical suites.

Sacred Heart Hospital also is fortunate to have talented pediatric surgeons, pediatric dentists, pediatric orthopedic surgeons and other specialists with specialized training in performing surgical procedures on children. For more information on any of our surgeons, please call 850-416-1600 or see the Medical Staff Directory on this web site.
