Crestwood Medical Center

HQ: Huntsville, AL   |  
In every hospital’s history there are milestones that shape its growth and development for years to come. Over the past 40 years Crestwood has proudly celebrated exponential growth and continues to add services to better serve the community in which it is located.

In 1964, Crestwood, named for the subdivision it was originally located in, opened as a nursing home. On July 12, 1965, Crestwood was converted to a hospital and opened its doors as a new medical facility on McAlister Drive in Huntsville, Alabama. It was founded by a group of three physicians: Dr. Ellis Sparks, Dr. James Earl Robertson, and Dr. Bernie Moore and one local businessman, Mr. Archie Hill, who sought a choice for medical services in Huntsville. In 1968, Crestwood was purchased by HCA. Eventually, due to an expansion of services and an increased number of employees, it became necessary to look for another site, which would provide adequate space.

In February of 1982, the hospital moved to its present facility on Hospital Drive just off Airport Road. With state-of-the-art capability and equipment, Crestwood continued to expand its services and procedures.

Crestwood is currently under construction with a 30-bed expansion project. This project will construct a total of 91,000 square feet of new space, creating a third and fourth floor on our east additional as well as a new four floor structure just north of our east addition. This project will also include new administrative offices and a connector from the newly completed East Tower second floor to the existing facility. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2007 and will allow Crestwood to expand its licensed bed capacity to 150 total private beds.

In April 2004, Crestwood opened a new Women’s Center where all breast diagnostic and screening imaging services are located. In December 2004, Crestwood completed a $36 million expansion project. This expansion provided a new patient entrance and expanded patient care areas. Renovations and additions provided space to convert all patient rooms within the facility to private rooms. The expansion also included an 8-bed Intensive Care Unit.

We are also proud of our community spirit. The hospital, as well as its employees, and volunteers, support the community through sponsorships, donations and volunteer time for organizations such as March of Dimes, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and United Way.

Since 1965, Crestwood has successfully blended high-tech medicine with personal care. We offer the latest in high-tech medical advancements and surgical and diagnostic procedures while providing compassionate care to our patients and their families. 
It is our Mission to serve our Community by providing the highest level of quality patient care and service excellence for all patients and their families who choose our hospital. We are committed to providing and continuously improving our facilities and expertise to provide those services. We will improve the health of our Community in an environment that is attractive, state of the art, safe, efficient, cost effective, team oriented, respectful, and compassionate
