About the Organization
Under local ownership and leadership for more than 90 years, the DCH Health System has continually evolved to offer advanced caring to West Alabama.
As our community grew and as medicine developed new procedures, a small hospital expanded its services and service area to become a regional medical center. Today, the DCH Health System operates DCH Regional Medical Center, Northport Medical Center and Fayette Medical Center. Through these hospitals, the Health System provides services that include cancer, cardiology, robotic and minimally invasive surgery, and the regions most advanced trauma center. Other services provided include bloodless medicine, home health care, sleep medicine, occupational medicine, spine/pain care, therapy and womens services.
DCH Regional Medical Center continues its evolution as West Alabama's health care leader by serving as the foundation of the DCH Health System, a regional health care system. DCH Regional Medical Center is the cornerstone of the DCH Health System. DCH Regional Medical Center operates specialty units for orthopedics, cancer, pediatrics and cardiology, as well as the region's most advanced trauma center and intensive care units, and a Bloodless Medicine and Surgery program.
Physicians at DCH Regional Medical Center use many of the latest surgical techniques that require less recovery time, including microsurgery, laser surgery, laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
The history of the DCH Health System is not the history of a building or a health care system.
It is the story of a community's continuing response to provide for itself one of the most important commodities a community can offer - health care.
