Partnership with Ascension
Living through the pandemic has heightened the need for more community healthcare outpatient services. Telehealth had not become widely adopted except in rural areas where acceptable bandwidth existed. Now, videoconferencing in multiple formats such as Facetime, Zoom, Skype, WebEX and many others have become commonly used tools while the global population sheltered in place. Doctor consultations through these computer platforms are now accepted and even preferred by many for its convenience and reduction to contaminant exposure.
The Seaside Institute is proud to announce a new Lab Express from Ascension Sacred Heart. Initially the Lab Express will offer blood draw or phlebotomy services. Walk-ins are welcome on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 7 a.m. to noon. Expansion of the days and hours will be considered as demand increases.
“The Seaside Institute thanks Henry Stovall, Ascension Sacred Heart regional president, and Roger Hall, retired president of Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast, along with Charles Henry, Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast laboratory manager, for working with us on this program. We will continue to identify other opportunities to bring quality patient-centric care to South Walton. This extends to leading a healthier life through well-being and physical wellness,” said Victoria Lee, Seaside Institute Chairman.
The Lab Express will be located inside the Seaside Assembly Hall at 168 Smolian Circle in Santa Rosa Beach. Two complimentary reserved parking spaces are located directly in front of the Assembly Hall. Most major insurances are accepted. Patients are asked to confirm coverage with your insurance provider.
