The Need

Our hospital has served generations of families in the Tennessee Valley since 1895. As the second largest hospital in Alabama, Huntsville Hospital is the regional referral center for North Alabama and south central Tennessee, providing high-quality health care for a service area of more than 1.3 million people, regardless of their ability to pay.

As a not-for-profit regional hospital, Huntsville Hospital relies on philanthropy to fund its capital and operational needs. From funding high-touch programs like Arts in Medicine and Music Therapy, to investing in high-tech equipment for hospital departments, Foundation dollars ensure that Huntsville Hospital is able to continue meeting the needs of our growing community.

There is a need. And, with your support, we can continue meeting the needs of patients across our region.
