Ensuring the brightest future for our patients, employees and the communities we serve.

RMC has begun a thorough and deliberate process to determine if a potential partner could help sustain and improve access to high-quality, low-cost care close to home and support the long-term growth of the communities we serve.

RMC Health System

We are focused on exploring how a potential partner could help us advance local healthcare, with a focus on:

Excellent Clinical Care

RMC has important opportunities to better meet patients’ needs by expanding access to critical services and bringing new physicians and new kinds of care to the local region.

Supporting Employees and Providers

It is important to the Board that any potential partner is a good cultural fit, embraces RMC’s values, supports the vital role RMC plays in the region and helps position RMC as an employer and clinical partner of choice for the entire medical community. By equipping clinical teams with the needed resources, RMC will be better positioned to continue providing excellent care, while maintaining its role as one of the largest employers in Northeast Alabama.

Supporting Growing Communities

Recently, Calhoun County and the surrounding communities have experienced considerable economic growth. As the region continues to develop, local communities must have a healthcare system that can meet the growing healthcare needs of the future.

Equipment, Facilities and Technology

Infrastructure investments that support patient care have a domino effect, bringing more physicians, qualified staff, training and services with them. These investments are critical to improving RMC’s quality of care and keeping pace with industry demands.

Care Close to Home

RMC believes people should be able to see their doctors and receive the highest-quality services they need close to home. RMC must continue to evolve to ensure the best care is available right here in the local region.

Our Mission

Providing state-of-the-art healthcare with integrity, to the people we serve.

For more than 100 years, our commitment at RMC has been to provide high-quality healthcare to the people of Northeast Alabama. We remain committed to doing everything possible to ensure the brightest future for our patients, employees, providers and communities.

The RMC Board has identified several core considerations that are key to meeting the healthcare needs of Northeast Alabama and supporting the continued economic development of the region. Specifically, we are focused on exploring how a potential partner could help us advance our vision. We are seeking a potential partner that will:

Share Commitment

Share RMC’s longstanding commitment to quality, safety and patient experience.

Financial Investment

Serve our communities with ongoing financial investments in RMC’s services, technology, equipment, facilities and people.

Support our current employees and providers by:

  • equipping our physicians and staff with the needed resources to continue providing excellent care
  • maintaining RMC’s role as one of the largest employers in Northeast Alabama
  • embracing our values, culture and the vital role we play in the communities we serve
  • positioning RMC as an employer of choice for staff and the clinical partner of choice for the entire medical community

About The Health Care Authority of the City of Anniston

The Health Care Authority of the City of Anniston (RMC) is the premier regional health care provider for a five-county service area in northeast Alabama. With a total of 338 inpatient beds located at its Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center campus, 125 at its Stringfellow Campus, and numerous outpatient facilities, urgent care and specialty clinics, RMC is the region’s leading provider of choice. More than 1,900 employees, 300 volunteers and over 200 physicians, who represent a full range of medical specialties – including cardiac, women’s, orthopedics, oncology and emergency services – provide state-of-the-art healthcare to patients with integrity, skill and compassion.

Next Steps

During the strategic partnership exploration process, RMC’s priority will continue to be providing exceptional care to patients. This process will not impact the health system’s daily operations, and nothing changes today for patients, employees or the community.

Specifically, patients can continue to see their doctor and access the services and clinics they always have. This process will take several weeks and months because it is important that we are careful and deliberate as we work to ensure the brightest future for our patients, employees, providers and communities.
