    Fort Walton Beach Medical Center Receiving Patients
    from HCA Healthcare Sister Facility Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center

    To ensure the continued safety of patients impacted by Hurricane Michael, Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center has begun transferring patients to our sister HCA Healthcare hospital, Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. “As the extraordinary and brave medical personnel at Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center are evacuating patients, our team is here to help,” said Mitch Mongell, “We will do everything possible to support those in Panama City and the impacted areas with the healthcare they need.” We have currently received and will continue to receive numerous patients transferred in from Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center in addition to those rescued from the Bay County area. We will send periodic updates throughout the coming days.
