HARTSELLE, Ala. – Cullman Regional celebrated the opening of the Hartselle Health Park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by members of the Hartselle Area Chamber, Hartselle City Council and supporters of the health system.  The facility has been open since November 2021 serving patients, but the official ceremony was put off due to high rates of COVID-19 in the community.

The newly constructed portion of the health park was built by Eidson and Associates, Inc. and is almost 18,000 sq. ft. It houses a state-of-the-art imaging center that offers CT, MRI, ultrasound, 3D mammography and X-ray services. It also includes an urgent care center that operates seven days a week and afterhours. A group of specialists from Cullman Regional’s employed physician group offer clinic appointments for a variety of medical specialties including orthopedics, general surgery, gynecology, cardiology, primary car, psychiatry and pulmonology.

James Clements Cullman Regional CEO stated, “We’re incredibly proud of Hartselle Health Park and the ability it gives Cullman Regional to provide much needed local access to quality healthcare. Our first round of thanks goes out to the Cullman Regional Board of Directors. Without the support of people like Perry Knight and Tim Culpepper here today, we would not have been able to approve the access to care that we have in Hartselle. In order to accomplish something like that, it takes a large number of people. In addition, I would like to thank the City of Hartselle, the Hartselle Chamber of Commerce and the Morgan County Commission. Without all of us working together, we could not have accomplished what we have today.”

Cullman Regional Vice-President of Physician Services Lisa Courtney added, “The Hartselle community has been great to work with as we planned, built and opened Hartselle Heath Park. We look forward to being a part of such a special community and serving Hartselle and Morgan County residents.”
