Shoals Ambulance moves 130 patients to newly-built North Alabama Medical Center

Shoals Ambulance moved more than 130 patients from ECM Hospital to the new North Alabama Medical Center in Lauderdale County, Alabama, on December 6, 2018. More than 50 employees from Shoals Ambulance and our sister company, Baptist Ambulance, staffed more than 20 ambulances to complete the move ahead of schedule in just under six hours.

The hospital opening is the culmination of a year of planning with Shoals Ambulance, the hospital and city law enforcement, emergency services and other government agencies to ensure the safe transition of all patients to the new hospital.
