Sacred Heart Medical Group Ribbon Cutting for North Gulf Location

Posted: 9/12/2013

Wewahitchka, FL -- Sacred Heart Medical Group will formally open a new primary care office Monday, Sept. 23 in Wewahitchka at a 7:30 a.m. CST ribbon-cutting ceremony. The ceremony marks the latest expansion of Sacred Heart Services for Gulf and Franklin counties.

The new primary care location in Wewahitchka is located in the Florida Department of Health in Gulf County building located at 807 West Hwy. 22, Wewahitchka, FL.  Primary care services will be provided by Nancy Anderson, ARNP and will include women's health screenings, Monday-Friday from 7 to 11:30 am and 12:30 to 4 pm CST.  Appointments will be available after the ceremony and can be made by calling 568-1053.

Anderson earned her Masters in Science of Nursing from Northwestern State University in Shreveport, LA.  She subsequently completed her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Alabama, Birmingham.  She is a Florida-licensed Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) and has been practicing as an ARNP since 1995.

Advanced Registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) are advanced practice nurses with extensive training, including a masters degree and clinical experience.  ARNPs diagnose and treat diseases, provide appropriate education for patients, and prescribe medications. ARNPs often serve as a patient's primary health care provider and see patients of all ages.

Lab and x-ray services will continue on Fridays from 7 am to 1 pm CST.  No appointment is necessary for lab and x-ray services.

The community is invited to attend the ribbon cutting and meet Anderson and other staff while enjoying coffee from 7:30 to 8:30 am.
