History of Northwest Medical Center
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.
Patient Medical Records
Medical Release of Information
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.

A Word From Our CEO
Under the supervision of the Hospital Authority, Northwest Medical Center is now able to operate the hospital independently, much like in the days when Carraway Hospital of Birmingham managed Northwest. During that era the hospital became a medical hub, providing regional medical services for the three-county area. Once again it will be possible to grow and provide the best quality of care to the communities the hospital serves.
