UAB Hospital garners two prestigious awards for women's health UAB Hospital is listed among “America’s Best Hospitals for Obstetrics” by the 2015 Women’s Choice Award and “100 Hospitals with Great Women’s Health Programs” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
“These are exceptional honors that recognize the tremendous efforts of the staff and physicians who work around the clock to provide both routine and comprehensive, cutting-edge health care to women,” said William Andrews, Ph.D., M.D., professor and chair of UAB’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
President Ray L. Watts announces an independent review of the financial analysis that served as a basis for decisions in the Athletic Department. The decision follows Watts’ monthlong series of meetings with faculty, staff, students, alumni and others.
“A common theme we have heard in the many meetings I have had with UAB's major constituency groups on and off campus, including faculty, staff, students, alumni and other supporters, is a desire to have an independent financial firm evaluate the numbers that served as a basis for our decisions in the Athletic Department,” Watts said. “I have listened, and I agree that if an independent financial review is needed to verify the credibility of our numbers, then that is what we should do.”
A committee representative of UAB constituents has been formed to select a firm to review the initial report.
