Medical options abound in Autauga and Elmore counties.
Thanks to Prattville Baptist Hospital, an abundance of specialty-care providers and a trio of urgent-care clinics, the region’s residents enjoy convenient access to high-quality medical care.
Prattville Baptist Hospital, an acute-care, 85-bed community hospital on South Memorial Drive, has served Autauga and Elmore counties since two local physicians founded it in 1952. In the six-plus decades since, PBH has grown to offer the latest in medical technology and a wide range of services, including general medical and surgical, a 24-hour emergency room, cardiopulmonary treatment and a dialysis center. The hospital’s radiology department provides inpatient and outpatient imaging services, including magnetic-resonance imaging (MRI) and a CT scanner. Its Sleep Disorders Center can diagnose up to 84 different conditions.
Patients seeking speech, occupational and physical therapies and audiology services can visit the hospital’s Center for Advanced Therapy for interdisciplinary care provided by an experienced team of therapists and a Doctor of Audiology. While the center treats patients of all ages, its focus is on children with special needs, such as those with Down syndrome, autism or sensory-integration disorder.
