Noland Health Services is celebrating an elite milestone in the healthcare industry. This year marks our 100 year legacy of providing health services to the citizens of Alabama.
A recognized leader in the industry, this anniversary is one of pioneering achievements. In 1913, Dr. Lloyd Noland came to Jefferson County, Alabama at the invitation of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Land Company (TCI) to address the public health needs of workers who suffered from smallpox, typhoid, and other epidemic diseases. The result was a $750,000 healthcare facility, an investment greater than the state’s budget for public health at the time. The company hospital, founded by Dr. Noland, went on to become the centerpiece of a community health network of services.
Growing from the progressive system founded by Dr. Noland, Noland Health Services today follows his legacy. Noland Health Services specializes in long term acute care hospitals (LTACH’s) for patients who require extended care due to chronic diseases or complex medical conditions. LTACH’s are innovative regional referral hospitals dedicated to meeting the complex treatment and clinical education needs of patients and families who require extended (generally exceeding 25 days) or specialty focused stays in a hospital setting. In addition to Dothan, Noland Health Services locations include Anniston, Birmingham, Montgomery, Shelby, and Tuscaloosa.
A private, not-for-profit health care organization, Noland is also one of the largest providers of multi-level senior living communities in the state. Senior living options include garden homes, independent living apartments, assisted living, residential and day memory care, short term rehabilitation and long term skilled nursing care. Noland Health Services, Inc. communities are strategically located throughout the Birmingham metropolitan area and offer a wide range of amenities and services.
