The hospital is located within a federally designated health professional shortage area (HPSA).

The community of Decatur, population approximately 50,000, is located on the banks of the Tennessee River.

Decatur's richly storied past of opportunity, prosperity, diversity and determination has shaped the city that we are today, a Grand City on a Charming Scale.

From families whose ancestors first settled this fertile river valley to newcomers who move to the area because of our progressive business environment, our City's welcoming spirit and sense of community are what make Decatur home to a diverse group of people. Our award-winning schools and family-friendly, safe neighborhoods make Decatur a great place to raise a family.

Decatur's business climate is as progressive as it is diverse. We are home to industrial giants such as United Launch Alliance, Nucor Steel, Daikin America, and 3M as well as award-winning small retailers like Big Bob Gibson's Barbecue and Morgan Price Candy Company.

Outdoor recreation is a year-round staple in Decatur. Folks take advantage of our location on the Tennessee River for boating, water skiing, and fishing from the first warm days of Spring through those late, lazy Fall days when the sun on the water beckons. In Decatur, one of the ways we build a strong community is providing wonderful city parks and recreation facilities. Point Mallard Park features 750 acres for recreational use with year-round activities, including the J. Gilmer Blackburn Aquatic Center, golf course, indoor ice rink, hiking/biking trails by the river, sports fields and campground. The Jack Allen Sports Complex is our new 77-acre park that provides 30 acres of laser-graded and irrigated soccer and football fields. Festivals throughout the year bring our citizens and neighbors from around the region together to celebrate with music, balloons, food and fun. Other ways to have fun in Decatur include the North Alabama Birding Trail, the Carnegie Visual Arts Center, the Princess Theater Center for the Performing Arts, Riverwalk Marina, Wheeler Wildlife Refuge, two historic districts, and unique shopping and dining experiences.

Decatur is less than 90 miles from Nashville, TN and Birmingham, AL and only a short 30 minute drive from Huntsville, AL, the "Space Capital of the South".
