If you think you are experiencing a medical emergency, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.

The Fort Walton Beach Medical Center ER is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. It consists of 22 treatment rooms/bays and a dedicated ER Radiology Room. Our department is staffed by physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals specifically trained to deliver emergency medical services at a moment's notice. The ER assesses and treats all ages, from neonatal to geriatric patients. With the emphasis on timely assessment and treatment, our department 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. All age groups served are at risk for abuse and neglect, so staff are prepared to identify the different signs and symptoms unique to the various ages. The ER at FWBMC has developed mechanisms for triage, treatment, and stabilization as defined in department policies and procedures.

Our ER also includes an Express ER for minor injuries and illnesses. In addition, we have a Pediatric ER that is dedicated to treating the emergency health care needs of infants, children and adolescents.

As an Advanced Primary Stroke Center, Level II Adult Cardiovascular Center and a licensed Psychiatric Treatment Center, the FWBMC ER offers the most comprehensive inventory of services in the tri-county area. And with the fastest Door-to-Balloon time in the area, you're in good hands if you or a loved one suffers a heart attack.
