Wewahitchka medical services

Given the changes occurring at the Gulf County Health Department facility in Wewahitchka, a public meeting will be held at 6 p.m. CT on Tuesday, July 30 at the Honeyville Community Center south of Wewahitchka.

Representatives from the Health Department and Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will be present to provide information.

The Health Department ceased providing primary medical services at the end of June due to statewide budget cuts.

Sacred Heart on the Gulf is to take over those services – the Health Department will continue to provide basic public health services – sometime this month, expanding the offerings of the Health Department, SHH President Roger Hall has told commissioners.


Several testy exchanges concerning telephonic communications with commissioners took place during Tuesday’s meeting, with Commissioner Joanna Bryan the receiving the brunt of it.
