In April, the State Health Planning & Development Agency Certificate of Need Review Board approved Cullman Regional’s application to build a freestanding emergency department in Hartselle. The approval sets in motion an estimated 12-month construction phase to complete the new healthcare facility, which will serve Hartselle and south Morgan County communities.
The 17,934 square foot facility will operate 24/7 and will be staffed with board certified emergency medicine physicians capable of caring for patients in critical medical conditions. It will offer on-site imaging including MRI and CT as well as lab and pharmacy services. The facility will also be equipped with an ambulance bay and a helipad.
In 2021, Cullman Regional opened Hartselle Health Park and has since added two physician clinics, a diagnostic imaging center and an urgent care clinic.
