Judy and Steve Turner Heart & Vascular Center
Sacred Heart Health System has a long-standing tradition of meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of Northwest Florida, especially when it comes to heart care. In Spring 2012, Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast continued the tradition with the opening of the state-of-the-art Judy and Steve Turner Heart & Vascular Center.
The 6,600-square-foot center is the first in the Florida Panhandle to feature a hybrid cath lab. The hybrid lab adds surgical capabilities to a traditional cardiovascular cath lab, allowing both surgical and interventional procedures to occur sequentially or simultaneously. Performing procedures in the hybrid lab shortens procedure times, is safer for the patient and improves outcomes.
Our cardiac specialists see patients in the Medical Office Building, located adjacent to the hospital in Miramar Beach, at 7720 Hwy 98 West, Suite 110. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 850-267-1603.
"To say I did not believe I was having a heart attack one month ago today is an understatement. When I finally realized the reality of the situation, I was running out of time. From the minute I walked in to the Emergency Room I received incredible care. An hour after my arrival I was in recovery with a brand new stent in my heart. "
