Sacred Heart To Build New Emergency Room On Nine Mile Road

August 8, 2019

Sacred Heart Hospital plans to be build a new $11 million emergency center at the intersection of Nine Mile Road and Stefani Road. Construction on the 14,700 square-foot facility is expected to begin this fall, and the facility’s opening is planned for late 2020.

The emergency center will include 13 treatment rooms and two trauma rooms staffed by emergency medicine physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists. The facility will also will include a lab, pharmacy, CT scanner and x-ray imaging.

“Like all of our emergency rooms, we’ll be open all day, every day. We’ll also have separate areas to care for children and adults,” said Tom VanOsdol, president and CEO of Ascension Florida. “Across the Gulf Coast and North Florida, we want to continue to make it easier for patients to receive the care they need, when and where they need it.”

The new ER will be located within a mile of the new Ascension Sacred Heart Health Center at Milestone, an outpatient medical facility that opened in March of this year. It will be supported by Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola, which provides the region’s only Trauma Center to treat both adults and children.

Two other projects are currently under construction in Pensacola: a health center off Summit Boulevard and a physical therapy and rehabilitation center near Bayou Boulevard. Both of those facilities will open next year.

    Wow.. like Navy Federal.. lots of Sacred Heart offices and ER’s going up real close together . Wouldn’t it have been better to just build one there and not 2 a mile apart from each other

    Sacred Heart…wasn’t it you that almost had an egg when Baptist wanted to do something on Nine Mile Road? Maybe you need to follow your own advise.

    Are those Vultures circling over the building?

    And where are they going to get the nurses to staff this facility? Maybe pay better and treat them with respect, you might get some back that have left and some new nurses.

    Great idea. A closer ER to the residents living in North Escambia county.

    Wished Sacred Heart would construct a second full service hospital in the vicinity of Beulah near Navy Federal on the vacant land there. It doesn’t have to be a large facility, just a size that could be more convenient than 9th Avenue. Some times a person going to this new ER may need to be admitted to the hospital.
