WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A new center designed for women is opening in Walton County.

Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast opened its Women’s Diagnostic Center Friday.

The center provides a comfortable place for women to get services including 3D mammography and includes new technology that helps surgeons find small breast tumors.

Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast Regional President Henry Stovall said this opening is important because women deserve programs for their needs.

“This is a quantum leap forward for the community, it’s the latest and greatest technology, the best available, in a spot that’s not a hospital, it’s not clinical, it’s a relaxed atmosphere, easy access, with them being the focus of all of our attention,” Stovall said.

Ascension Sacred Heart will build buildings that offer the same services in Bay and Gulf Counties.
