History

Southeast Alabama Medical Center is a not-for-profit community health system dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of the residents of southeast Alabama, southwest Georgia and the Florida Panhandle.  Through advanced treatment and technology, it provides for the changing healthcare needs of the growing communities it serves since 1957. The progress of the Medical Center represents the distinguished service of dedicated board members, physicians, employees and volunteers, and a supportive community.

It takes more than technology and a modern facility to treat people. It takes a team of dedicated, well-trained professionals to continually deliver quality healthcare. Employing a staff of more than 2,700, the Medical Center is recognized as one of the largest employers in the region and is proud of its reputation of providing a positive and responsive work environment. The Medical Center is supported by a medical staff of approximately 350 physicians representing virtually every medical specialty. Ninety percent of the medical staff at Southeast Alabama Medical Center is board-certified compared to the national average of 60 percent.

Through innovation and sustained performance, the Medical Center, a 420-bed regional referral center, has achieved the reputation of providing the best diagnostic, clinical, surgical and patient care services available in the region.
