What Our patients Say

 I usually don't rate places based off of one visit, but since the service provided to me was exceptionally excellent, here I am! The care that was given was thorough and the staff was extremely courteous and professional. I did not have a long waiting time at all. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Highly recommend!

I had surgery at this hospital last week and I was very impressed by the level of care and professionalism that I experienced. The staff was kind and caring and the facility was clean and safe. I consider my overall experience as a blessing and I’m very grateful for all the wonderful people who were part of care!

They were all so helpful during my day surgery. Very professional. I was very pleased.

Awesome staff, very compassionate and concerned about my health, ER was full and yet everyone was amazing, attentive, kept me informed. Thank you to all the staff and Dr. Hajjar for the wonderful care you provided. God Bless all of you!

Northwest Regional Health Foundation continues to receive generous support of the construction of its new 8,000 square foot Emergency Department with a recent donation by Alabama CancerCare. Dr. Shelby Sanford opened his first cancer center here in Winfield in 1996, and Alabama CancerCare now has 11 centers serving the people of Alabama.

The new Emergency Room, scheduled to open in April 2023, will be a state-of-the-art facility. “We are happy to continue our collaboration with Northwest Regional Health (NRH) in providing healthcare to the communities in Northwest Alabama”, says Dr. Shelby Sanford. The donations to the NRH Foundation support our physicians and staff in providing the most up to date equipment and training in our area,” says Michael Windham, CEO. Donations to the Foundation can be made by calling 205-487-7000
