Huntsville Hospital

hsvhospHuntsville Hospital is all about people. 

Since 1895 when the tiny Huntsville Infirmary opened, their focus has been people serving people. More than a century later that focus has expanded to include service to people throughout north Alabama and southern Tennessee.

Today, Huntsville Hospital is one of the largest locally owned not-for-profit hospitals in the nation with 881 licensed acute care beds. As a teaching facility for the University of Alabama-Birmingham's School of Medicine and Family Practice Residency Program, Huntsville Hospital helps train family physicians for communities throughout Alabama and beyond. In addition, the hospital serves as a participant in more than 50 national drug research projects.

Leading the health care team is Huntsville Hospital's medical staff of more than 650 highly trained physicians who are supported by 5,000 hospital employees, including nearly 2,000 nurses. Facilities include Huntsville Hospital, Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children, an outpatient Medical Mall, Madison Medical Park and a 70-bed rehabilitation hospital located on the campus. Huntsville Hospital operates a cafeteria and grill onsite.
