Medical Center has been an integral part of Florida's Emerald Coast
for over 60 years.
Dr. Henry C. White
was a health care pioneer in Fort Walton Beach. In 1946, he opened
the first doctor's office in a house on Brooks Street. He and his
family lived upstairs so he could be on call 24 hours a day. Dr. White
recognized there was still a need for expansion to be able to provide
complete care for his patients. So he added a laboratory, diagnostic x-ray,
surgery and a few hospital beds to his clinic.
In 1952, his
medical school classmate and friend, Dr. Joseph C. Wilson, joined Dr.
White and the foundation of White-Wilson Medical Center was formed. In
1977, the clinic built a facility on Mar Walt Drive, which still
operates as the main campus for White-Wilson Medical Center today.
During the following years, satellite practices opened in Destin,
White-Wilson Medical Center offers an array of quality health
services including primary and specialty care as well as many
ancillary services such as full service diagnostic imaging, lab,
audiology, physical therapy and more.
Our organization has consistently been the first in developing and utilizing new
technology. We were first in the area to offer magnetic resonance
imaging (MRI) and an ultra-fast
computerized tomography (CT) scanner.
Medical Center currently has more than 75 physicians in 20 different specialties, making
our organization one of the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art
outpatient health care facilities in the area.
Medical Center continues to grow and expand its presence on the Emerald Coast.
Service centers, such as the Center for Women's Health, the Cardiac Imaging Group, and the NeuroScience Center were designed to fill specific, defined needs within the community. We are constantly staying ahead of the curve with ever-changing
health care technological advancements to continuously improve the quality of the
health care services we provide our
Medical Center is
dedicated to providing the community with the highest quality,
most affordable and most convenient health care services - now and in
the future. We are continuously working toward our vision of being
"the health care provider of choice on the Emerald Coast".
