If you attended the annual 911 Festival in Haleyville, Alabama recently, you may have seen our own Amanda Godsey, Nurse Practitioner at Northwest Primary Care Clinic in Winfield, walking through the crowd and handing out gift bags. If you were lucky enough to get one of her gift bags, you should have found a blue ticket in the bag with a number on it. That ticket enters you into our Big Prize Drawing which took place today! The winning ticket number is 302130. If you hold the winning ticket, please call Northwest Primary Care Clinic at 205-487-7556 or bring your ticket by our office to claim your prize. We are open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
If you are in need of a primary care physician, we'd be happy to serve you!

The Wound Care Center® at Northwest Medical Center, a member of the Healogics network, is helping raise awareness of chronic wounds during the sixth annual Wound Care Awareness Week, being held from June 3 to June 7. Wound Care Awareness was established by Healogics in 2014 to bring attention to the chronic wound epidemic and the 6.7 million Americans who are currently living with non-healing wounds. Program Directors across the nation will dedicate the entire week to educating physicians, patients and the general public about the chronic wound epidemic and the advanced wound care solutions available. Northwest Wound Care Center & Hyperbaric Medicine located at Northwest Medical Center offers advanced therapies to patients suffering from chronic wounds.
The Winfield Hospital had its official opening in 1949 and since that time has been serving the primary health care needs of Marion, Fayette, Lamar, Walker and Winston Counties.
In this modern era, Northwest Medical Center has added many specialized services reaching beyond our primary service area into a regional service facility. A modern, well-equipped replacement hospital was built in 1998 and compliments the quality of our Medical Staff and patient care.

In the fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea," the heroine cannot sleep because she can feel a very small lump, even though it's covered by dozens of mattresses.
In real life, we are not that lucky. By the time we can feel a lump in our own breasts, a cancerous tumor could possibly have grown larger and spread beyond the breast into other areas of our bodies.
The process for requesting a patient's medical records includes obtaining a medical release of information authorization that is signed and dated by the patient.
