Dr. Rachel Bixler, a family medicine physician, Dr. Glenn McAlpin, general surgeon, and Angela Castaneda, nurse practitioner, have been honored with the company’s 5-Star Awards. Dr. Bixler and Dr. McAlpin are connected to Sacred Heart Medical Group offices in Port St. Joe, while Castaneda is employed by Sacred Heart Medical Group in Apalachicola.
