Our Heartbeat

Our History

btm-line

Northwest Medical Center has a long history of providing exemplary support to the Northwest Alabama community. Originating from the Winfield Hospital, built in 1949, Northwest advanced its services and specializations with the construction of a replacement hospital in 1998. Since then, our campus has continued to grow and innovate, encompassing a brand-new surgery center in 2009, as well as wellness rehabilitation, dialysis, and assisted living facilities on-site.
