The Sacred Heart Medical Group is officially in Wewahitchka.

During a ceremony Monday, president of Sacred Heart Hospitals Roger Hall cut the ribbon on the new primary care center located on State 22 in the Health Department building.

This is the latest step in the expansion of Sacred Heart services for Gulf and Franklin counties.

“We now have Sacred Heart Hospital in Wewahitchka,” said Hall. “It’s important for the community and it’s a privilege to serve them.

“It’s a great day to make a difference in healthcare.”

Hall added that the lab, which offers x-rays and blood work, would be an important addition as patients wouldn’t need to drive to Panama City or Port St. Joe for certain tests.

Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner Nancy Anderson will lead the primary care services set to include woman’s health screenings and lab and x-ray services.
