FWBMC is in partnership with Twin Cities Hospital, located in Niceville. We are the parent company of the Destin ER and the Rehabilitation Institute of Northwest Florida, both located on Airport Road in Destin. We are also affiliated with Northwest Florida Heart Institute, Florida Institute of Neuroscience, and Northwest Florida Orthopedics.

For expecting mothers, FWBMC's highly skilled team of OB/GYNs and nurses provide the compassionate care you deserve, while private labor, delivery and recovery suites offer a safe, supportive and homelike environment. Our Couplet Care system provides one nurse to help you and your baby off to a happy, healthy start. And should your delivery become high risk, you'll be comforted to know that our Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit has neonatologists available 24/7.
