Shelby Baptist Medical Center started as a community hospital in 1959, opening with only 35 beds, 8 physicians and 25 nurses. Back then, patients had to ring a doorbell to be seen by a nurse in the emergency department. But today, almost 60 years later, Shelby Baptist Medical Center has become a cutting edge hospital located in the heart of Alabaster, equipped with 252 beds to care for those in our community, eliminating the need for patients to travel to downtown Birmingham to receive high-quality, compassionate care. 

Over the past few decades, we have undergone several changes, but one thing has remained the same: our quality care. In fact, we’ve been recognized for our commitment to quality care with various distinctions including several Leapfrog Safety A scores, Joint Commission accolades, clinical excellence awards and more. Our high-quality care combined with our full range of healthcare services and treatments means you will never have to leave home to receive the care you deserve. 

Our emergency department is one of the most depended-upon in the state, with nearly 50,000 visits each year. When patients are admitted to our facility, they gain immediate access to all of our advanced technology resources including a 3 Tesla MRI, 3D mammography, and a state-of-the-art cardiology suite. Our robotic surgery program delivers less painful procedures to treat various medical needs including hernia and urological repairs as well as general surgical procedures too. And if you’re welcoming a new member into the family, you can have confidence knowing our experienced team has the training and expertise to guide you through the labor & delivery process, as well as expert care designed for your little one. 

Though our advanced tools enable our treatment and service, we believe our most valuable resources are our employees. Our employees use a patient-focused approach, coupled with kindness and compassion that helps ensure you get not only the immediate care you need, but also preventive care and education to help you maintain your maximum level of health. We believe that patients are more than their medical problem, and they deserve to be treated as such. You can expect that the doctors, nurses and staff members at Shelby Baptist will deliver expert medical advice accompanied by a warm smile. You’ll be glad you came to Shelby Baptist. That’s our guarantee.
