Twin Cities Hospital is proud to offer 100% private rooms to our patients! We know how important it is to feel comfortable and cared for when you’re recovering—that’s why all our rooms are private. You can get the rest you need, enjoy alone time with your family, and have medical visits without an audience. Private rooms help speed your recovery and lower your chances of infection. All of which leads to better patient outcomes, lower costs, and best of all, happier patients. After all, we don’t just want you to get well soon. We want you to get well sooner!
With the recent addition of our Picture Archiving Communications Systems (PACS), we are proud to offer a film-less method of acquiring, storing, and communicating medical images. This revolutionizes the way medical images are captured, stored, interpreted, and shared. Because PACS expedites the delivery of images to the physicians who ordered them, patients receive their test results faster.
In addition, Twin Cities Hospital has the only hospital based Wellness Center in the area, offering a variety of community based programs on current health issues. Twin Cities Hospital and the Wellness Center are located on a 17 acre site at Highway 85 North and College Boulevard in Niceville.

The area supports Eglin Air Force Base, the largest military base in the world.

The Eglin Complex also houses Hurlburt Field, home of the Air Force Special Operations Command, and Duke Field, home of the 919th Special Operations Wing. The economic impact of the combined military presence in the tri-county area is an estimated $6.7 billion. The presence of the multi-service military units at Eglin results in a greater density of technology-based and defense-contracting firms creating industry clusters. Seven of the ten largest defense contractors in the State of Florida have a presence in Okaloosa County.
