Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf
Port St. Joe, Florida
Located in the small coastal community of Port St. Joe, this hospital filled a need for medical services in Gulf County, a fast-growing community. The hospital is a major inpatient and outpatient facility with a 25-bed nursing wing, surgical suite, radiological facilities, 24-hour emergency department, diagnostics, chapel, cafeteria, helipad, administrative, and support services. A central energy plant services the facility and its future expansion planned to include an additional 25 patient rooms, outpatient clinical space, a nuclear medicine testing suite and expanded emergency, radiological and operatory areas. Adjacent is a 25,000 SF medical office building, also designed by DAG. The hospital is designed to withstand a Category 4 storm surge, coastal wind pressures, and meets Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) requirements.
