A Community Built on Safety

We have strong infection prevention measures in place to keep our community safe. You can come to our hospital knowing that we screen all patients and staff and separate those who have or may have COVID-19. We’re here for you 24/7.

About Shelby Baptist Medical Center

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.

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.
