$230 Million North Alabama Medical Center Breaks Ground

A new regional hospital is heading to Florence with construction officially kicking off Wednesday afternoon. Several dignitaries including Alabama Governor Robert Bentley hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on the new site. The $230 million hospital will be dubbed the North Alabama Medical Center. It will replace the Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital and will host 280 beds. The campus will encompass three blocks of Veteran’s Drive in Florence. Officials said it is designed to be a great regional asset.

“Florence is a regional place. People come here to shop and come to the movies and all sorts of other things. They should come here for their healthcare as well,” Russell Pigg, the future North Alabama Medical Center CEO, said.
