About Us

Serving Alabama for More Than 100 Years

A pioneer in establishing programs to meet Alabama’s changing healthcare needs, Noland Health Services brings innovative, high-quality health services and an exceptional level of personal service to communities throughout the state.

Since 1913

In 1913, Dr. Lloyd Noland came to Jefferson County, Alabama, at the invitation of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Land Company to address the public health needs of workers who suffered from smallpox, typhoid and other epidemic diseases. He had recently served during the construction of the Panama Canal, helping eradicate the malaria and yellow fever that plagued Americans working on the project.

Soon after arriving in Birmingham, Dr. Noland realized there was a need in the community for more complete healthcare. He presented to the company his vision for a health system to address those needs. The result was a $750,000 healthcare facility, a private investment greater than the entire state budget for public health at the time.

The Legacy Grows

Growing from the progressive system established by Dr. Noland, a private, not-for-profit organization was founded in 1951 that today follows his legacy as Noland Health Services, Inc. (Noland Health, NHS). Based in Birmingham, Noland serves numerous regions of Alabama through innovative specialty hospitals for those requiring extended acute care and comfortable, inspiring full-service senior living communities.
