WBRC: New UA partnership aimed at sustaining and improving health care in rural west AL

August 8, 2016

A new partnership between The University of Alabama and Pickens County is aimed at sustaining and increasing health care services in a rural area, where it can often be a struggle to keep these services available. The initial concept for The University of Alabama-Pickens County Partnership began growing several years ago when Pickens County Medical Center in Carrollton was facing serious hardships. The partnership has become a reality this year, and over the past few months, programs have started operating in the county.
