I would like to recommend Brenda Downs, Admission Manager, to receive the High 5 Star recognition. On a typical day, Brenda arrives to our Admitting Department no later than 6:00 a.m., and always works at least 10 hours, sometimes longer if her folks need her.
During the recent Patient Access upgrade, Brenda worked countless hours helping her staff with the upgrade issues, staying one night until 10:00 p.m. She is one of the most dedicated and hardest-working women that I have ever been privileged to work with.
She has an outstanding work ethic and her staff can always depend on her to be there. She checks in with staff on weekends, comes in when they get in a bind and she insists that they call her for any issue, even if it's in the middle of the night.
I consider it an honor to work with her and I admire how her department runs seemingly flawless. We can always depend on her to step up and take care of business and her department. I would like to recommend her on her dedication, work ethic and her outstanding customer service to our patients."

Many from our area remember the wonderful gift shop that was once open at Northwest Medical Center. We are proud to announce that the gift shop has returned and is open for business, just off the main lobby in our hospital.
Our gift shop is staffed by volunteers and all proceeds from sales will go toward the hospital's operations. The gift shop will be open Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for community visitors, patients & families as well as our employees. It's not just a hospital gift shop, but a place where joy and happiness are spread to our employees & vistors through the volunteers and the gift shop's uniqueness in gifts and service.
Thank you to Jan Henger for taking on the challenge of getting the gift shop back up and running as well as getting it stocked with all types of special items. Be sure to visit the gift shop soon!
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.
Digital mammography can detect early-stage breast cancer.
If you're a woman 40 years of age or older, you should have a mammogram every year.
Schedule your mammogram today by calling us at (205) 487-7748. (A physician's order is required).
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.
