Beach Renourishment | Behind Schedule

Originally expected to begin the first week of March and be completed by April 15th, this project was delayed a few weeks. Beginning the week of March 26th, the beach renourishment for Panama City Beach is now expected to be complete by May 1st.

The project will be taking sand from the outer parts of the Gulf and bringing it to the shore, adding width to our beaches. More space on the shore means more room for beach volleyball, building the best sand castles, and relaxing on the warm sand!

Panama City BEACH Emergency Room | COMING SOON

Residents in Panama City Beach are incredibly excited for the addition of a free-standing emergency room on the beach side of U.S. Highway 98. For years, PCB residents would have to travel 30 minutes at a minimum to reach the current emergency room facilities. 

The new Bay Medical Sacred Heart Health System will be located near the intersection of Highway 98 and Richard Jackson Blvd. This facility will provide the same services as the main hospital emergency room, with the exception of trauma.

We are also excited that this project will not only benefit those in need of emergency assistance, but it will also provide 35 new jobs in the first year. 

The facility began construction in January 2017 and is expected to be completed and operational in July.
