The Destin Emergency Care Center represents Fort Walton Beach Medical Center's commitment to providing the highest quality healthcare services to communities throughout the region.

Destin Emergency Care Center is:

  • Emergency healthcare services available 24/7. Area residents receive the same high quality emergency care they have had to travel outside the community to receive at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.
  • Staffed by experienced emergency room physicians as well as nurses and technicians highly trained in providing emergency care.
  • Equipped with state of the art medical technology, lab services, and radiology including x-ray and CT. Immediate healthcare needs met onsite, without sacrificing access to appropriate medical technology.

The DECC consists of 6 exam/treatment rooms.  The DECC assesses and treats all ages, from neonatal to geriatric patients.  With an emphasis on timely assessment and treatment, the DECC staff are skilled in the specific age-related needs of these diverse populations in this clinical setting.  Every effort is made to include the patient's family or significant others in treatment, education, and discharge planning needs.  The DECC has developed mechanisms for triage, treatment, and stabilization as defined in department policies and procedures.

The DECC is equipped to handle traumatic, medical, pediatric, and/or psychiatric emergent health care needs.  Patients requiring an advanced level of care will be stabilized and transported to the facility of their choice which has the required services available.

Destin Emergency Care Center is located at 996 Airport Road, less than one mile north of Highway 98, across from the Destin Airport.
