In June, North Alabama Medical Center is celebrating the 20th anniversary of LifePoint Health, the health system of which it is a part, with a donation to One Place of the Shoals. This donation is part of a national anniversary celebration in which LifePoint has contributed $2,000 to causes in each of the 89 communities it serves nationwide. One Place of the Shoals was chosen by
hospital leadership because it reflects LifePoint’s and North Alabama Medical Center’s mission of Making Communities Healthier®.
“We are delighted to celebrate LifePoint Health’s 20th anniversary in our community with a donation to One Place of the Shoals,” said Russell Pigg, Chief Executive Officer of North Alabama Medical Center. “LifePoint was founded on the idea that everyone deserves quality healthcare close to home and that strong hospitals create strong communities. We are proud to be part of the LifePoint family and excited to continue our legacy of high quality, community-based care in Northwest Alabama for
years to come.”
LifePoint was founded in May 1999 as LifePoint Hospitals with 23 community hospitals in nine states. The company changed its name to LifePoint Health in 2015 as a reflection of its evolution from a hospital operator to a healthcare leader providing a range of services across the communities it serves. Today, LifePoint has 89 hospital campuses, 45+ post-acute service providers and facilities and 50+ outpatient facilities across 30 states. It has nearly 60,000 dedicated employees from coast to coast, including more than 3,000 employed providers and more than 8,600 affiliated providers.
As part of its national anniversary celebration, LifePoint has committed $2,000 to support causes in each of its communities. Hospitals within these communities were encouraged to select a charitable cause of their choice that reflects the needs of their respective regions. North Alabama Medical Center chose One Place of the Shoals because our Emergency Department staff often works with One Place when a patient comes through with suspected abuse. We are grateful for One Place’s service to NAMC and to our community.
