University Medical Center is a multi-specialty practice dedicated to providing comprehensive patient-centered care while improving and promoting the health of West Alabama.
UMC is operated by The University of Alabama College of Community Health Sciences, which also functions as a regional campus of the University of Alabama School of Medicine. We provide direct health care services to the community as well as train medical students and resident physicians under the supervision of skilled and dedicated College clinicians. From two locations, one on the UA campus and the other in Northport in the Fitness One building on McFarland Boulevard, we provide patient-centered care in the areas of: primary care, including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics and geriatrics; psychiatry and behavioral medicine; women’s health, including obstetrics and gynecology; and sports medicine.
WHY CHOOSE PRIMARY CARE?
Research shows that patients who have family doctors live longer, healthier lives and are less likely to be hospitalized or die from chronic illnesses, according to the American Board of Family Medicine. Choosing a primary care physician means you are choosing a health partner who is dedicated to working with you to keep you healthy.
