Bringing Specialized Care to Mothers and Babies

For women with high-risk pregnancies, Sacred Heart offers the regionís only perinatal center, which includes a series of outpatient offices across Northwest Florida and an inpatient unit at our sister facility, Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola.

Our Pensacola campus is also home to The Studer Family Childrenís Hospital at Sacred Heart, a 117-bed facility that serves as the only childrenís hospital in Northwest Florida. The Childrenís Hospital also offers the regionís only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Through our dedicated Neonatal Critical Care Transport Unit stationed in Miramar Beach, we are able to bring prematurely born and critically ill babies to The Childrenís Hospital in Pensacola for lifesaving care. Thank you to our incredible sponsors for their support of the Neonatal Transport Unit, including the Caduceus Society on the Emerald Coast, Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation, Walmart and Samís Club.

Our network of pediatric subspecialists in partnership with Nemours Childrenís Clinic offers the community access to board-certified physicians across 28 pediatric specialties. These physicians see patients at the Medical Office Building of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast every Thursday and Friday, providing a seamless link to the specialized care some children may require.
