As part of their annual "Faith Fellowship Serve Day" this group from Faith Fellowship Church in Winfield worked hard Saturday morning cleaning up and spreading pinestraw arond the front of Northwest Medical Center. We greatly appreciate your community service work and the tremendous improvement you made to the entrance area of our hospital. It looks great! We are happy to be a part of a community that works together to make our town a better place! If you see any of these folks, be sure to thank them for giving of their time and talents!

Northwest Medical Center employees and visitors have been very generous in helping us with our School Supply Drive. Lots of school supplies have been collected and they will be distributed to area students as the new school year gets under way! Thanks to Linda Stowe, Annia Langston, Jane Harris, Molly Carothers, Tamera Bowling and others who worked to make the project a success! Shown above are Linda, Annia and Jane with the all the school supplies that were donated. There were also monetary donations that were given which will be used to buy additional supplies for the kids! Great job NWMC Team!
As the administrator at Northwest Medical Center I want to continue to report on the hospital's progress. We recognize that it is more important than ever to update the community since the City of Winfield has acquired ownership of the hospital. I am particularly concerned that the hospital's reputation and support within the community is strengthened and we are viewed In the future as an outstanding hospital by our patients and citizens.
I can tell you without reservation that we have a very good hospital with excellent doctors, nurses and clinical services that strive every day to bring the best care to our patients. That doesn't mean we always get the result desired by us or the patient. Like every other hospital In America, when treating very sick patients, some do not always end up with a good outcome after being treated in the hospital.
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.
