Providing Nearly 100 Years of Compassionate Health Care

For over a century, the DCH Health System has had local ownership and leadership, and we continually evolve to offer advanced caring to West Alabama. Today, the DCH Health System includes DCH Regional Medical Center, Northport Medical Center, and Fayette Medical Center.

DCH Regional Medical Center is the cornerstone of the DCH system. The 583-bed Regional Medical Center offers a variety of specialty units and advanced services, including cancer, cardiology, robotic and minimally invasive surgery, and the region’s advanced trauma center.

Northport Medical Center is a 204-bed community hospital that offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services. The facility also operates important specialty services, including the DCH Rehabilitation Pavilion and North Harbor Pavilion for mental health.

Fayette Medical Center, through a lease agreement with the DCH Health System, is a 61-bed rural hospital that offers the residents of Fayette County inpatient care, along with sophisticated diagnostic equipment, surgical techniques and specialty clinics. A 122-bed nursing home on site is fully accredited and licensed for intermediate and skilled nursing care.

Through these hospitals, the Health System provides a wide range of health care services. Click here to learn more about our services.

Fayette Medical Center has served the people of Fayette County since 1958. Fayette Medical Center features a five-suite surgical department and a large, centrally monitored recovery area. In addition to general surgery and advanced endoscopic procedures, weekly eye surgery and orthopedic surgery are performed by surgeons from DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa.

Fayette Medical Center provides acute medical care on its patient units. For patients who need a little more time in the hospital to recover from an acute illness, the Swing Bed Program helps patients continue to get well after an illness has been treated.

The Radiology Department is equipped with an in-house MRI and a CT scanner that produces three-dimensional images. Patients have access to nuclear medicine, ultrasound with cardiac Doppler, angiography, mammography, bone densitometry and fluoroscopic equipment. A mobile PET/CT scanner is on site for appointments on the second and fourth Fridays of every month.

The Laboratory is CAP certified and fully equipped to perform extensive testing in the areas of chemistry, bacteriology, hematology, and blood banking. A complete Respiratory Department houses the pulmonary functions lab, blood gases, cardiac stress testing equipment and Holter monitoring.

The hospital has an eight-bed intensive care unit. There is also a portable non-invasive pacemaker, which can be used in the unit or during transport. Monitoring is available on the medical/surgical area. The Emergency Department is staffed full-time by physicians.

Rehabilitation Services include physical, occupational and speech therapy. These services are provided in our Outpatient Clinic located at the corner of Temple Avenue and 15th St. NW.
