Sacred Heart Health System broke ground today on a new 8,000 square-foot pediatric facility located at the corner of Gulf Breeze Parkway (U.S. 98) and Daniel Street in Gulf Breeze. The facility is expected to open in 2017.
The facility will bring the following new pediatric services to the Gulf Breeze community:
- Outpatient pediatric rehabilitation — Including physical, occupational, speech and food-aversion therapies
- Autism Center outreach — Direct, individualized Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy
- Diagnostic services — X-ray capabilities
“Our goal is to bring the highest quality of pediatric care that Sacred Heart is known for closer to the communities we serve so that more children can get the specialized medical expertise they need,” said Susan Davis, President and CEO of Sacred Heart Health System. “This pediatric care center will be a tremendous resource for the families of Gulf Breeze, and we are so excited to grow our presence in this great community.”
The existing Sacred Heart Medical Group pediatric practice in Gulf Breeze that consists of Dr. Brandy Boutin, Dr. Robin Renfroe and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Dana Wert will relocate to the new building when it opens, officials said. Pediatrician Dr. Jessica Tate will also join the practice.
