In the 25-plus years that I’ve served UAB Medicine, I am most proud of our unified effort to deliver quality health care to every patient, every time. We are a national and international leader in medicine, and our facilities offer the latest technology and the most advanced techniques and treatments.

Our physicians and other medical professionals are widely recognized for their expertise, and many of our programs are ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We created a world-class care environment by ensuring that UAB Medicine providers are focused on the individual needs of each patient. If you are a UAB Medicine patient already, thank you for allowing us to serve you. If not, I invite you to discover the UAB Medicine difference for yourself. We care for patients in the same way we’d want our own family members treated.
