Looking forward to even better healthcare

As another year approaches its end we tend to reflect on the past and to ponder the future, especially the coming new year.

At Marshall Medical Centers we are very grateful and appreciative of our past – a lot of history is built into the two hospitals that provide healthcare to this county. As important as that history is, though, we spend more time looking forward than back. With medical advancements moving along at lightning speed, we can’t sit still for a moment. In order to offer the very best medical care, we continually hire new doctors, buy the latest equipment and make improvements to our facilities.

Our Mission

The mission of Marshall Medical Centers – as you’ve seen on billboards, ads and brochures – is to provide world-class healthcare with a personal touch. That’s not just a slogan; the hospitals and the employees are evidence of the absolute truth of that statement.

We also have a specific vision to guide us to where we want to be in the future. Marshall Medical Centers will continue to apply the broad-based healthcare fundamentals that our organization was founded upon.

We are dedicated to providing the best technology possible, a wide range of services and specialty options, the finest physicians and highly-trained staff to meet the needs of the people we serve. 

We will:

  • Be the nucleus of healthcare in our community, promoting health and ensuring access.
  • Be recognized for outstanding patient satisfaction and quality.
  • Treat each customer as an individual, recognizing the differing needs of those we serve.
  • Grow by offering services that improve the health and well-being of our community and that contribute to the financial health of the organization.
  • Maintain an environment that attracts and retains top-quality physicians, nurses and other healthcare workers.
  • Remain flexible in our planning so we may respond quickly to a changing environment.
  • Partner with physicians and other providers in ways that will align our interests.
  • Proactively adopt best practices and technology in order to enhance quality, productivity and safety.

Our Investment

Now, as always, Marshall Medical Centers is here to deliver enhanced medical services and compassionate care closer to home – to broaden our horizons and seek a healthier tomorrow for the individuals and families we serve. As evidenced by our recent HealthConnections issue that spotlighted new medical equipment in the hospitals, digital updates and renovations, we are working all the time toward this goal.

Our job is to improve the quality of life for residents of Marshall County, as well as to take the best of care of them and their loved ones. That’s the reason we continue these improvements and advancements in technology.

As your community-owned, not-for-profit healthcare system, we’re re-investing every dollar into providing the very best staff, equipment and facilities possible. We are committed to being good stewards of the resources entrusted to us.

Marshall Medical is involved in many other areas in our community that have nothing to do with the bottom line.

They do, however, have everything to do with serving those who live here in ways other than just reliable healthcare.


Additional areas we offer support:

  • The Foundation for Marshall Medical Centers
  • Marshall County Youth Leadership
  • SmartStart for fifth grade girls
  • HOSA scholarships
  • Mammography Assistance Program
  • GoldCare55+
  • L.I.F.E. cancer support group

With the creation of Marshall Health System in 1997, people in the Marshall County area were the beneficiaries of better access to the best possible healthcare available. Today, we remain dedicated to providing the best technology possible, a wide range of services and specialty options, the finest physicians and highly trained staff to meet the needs of the people we serve.

Furthermore, we pledge to continue working with our physicians to make more health and wellness opportunities available to the people of our community.

Now, as always, Marshall Medical Centers is here to deliver enhanced medical services and compassionate care closer to home – to broaden our horizons and seek a healthier tomorrow for the people of Northeast Alabama.

We are grateful to be the healthcare provider of choice for Marshall County and surrounding areas.

It’s a role we take seriously, and we’ll continue to make the investments in technology, facilities and staff to earn your trust.
