The latest technology plus patient comfort combine for enhanced in-room capabilities for critical care.
With the summer 2023 opening of the largest construction project on Sand Mountain in more than a decade, residents of Boaz and surrounding communities have easy access to modern healthcare facilities rivalling those found in metropolitan areas.
The Marshall Medical South Patient Tower is the cornerstone of a $61.3 million investment that replaces older hospital rooms with modern, high-tech spaces that elevate every patient room to the level of critical care for those with life-threatening injuries and illnesses.
The 64-room, two-floor bed tower features suites of patient rooms each supported by its own nursing staff. Rooms are spacious and attractive with a wall of windows overlooking the Marshall South campus. Large, tiled bathrooms are designed to accommodate a wheelchair and have the capability to become a shower room if needed.
Marshall South opened in 1956 as the Boaz-Albertville Hospital with 35 beds and 35 employees. Today it has 150 beds with 975 employees. More than 40,000 patients are treated in the Level III Emergency Department each year. Marshall Medical Centers is part of the Huntsville Hospital Health System.
