The students will make recommendations based on medical, social and financial information and follow up throughout the academic year as if they were the patients’ primary care providers.
About University Hospital
USA Health University Hospital is an acute care facility serving as the major referral center for southwest Alabama, southeast Mississippi and portions of northwest Florida. We offer centers for Level I trauma, burn, stroke, cardiovascular disease and sickle cell disease. As a teaching and research facility for the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, University Hospital plays a key role in the development of new technology, treatments and training of future healthcare professionals. The hospital also includes outpatient care services such as cardiology, medicine and surgery.
University Hospital is a member of the American Hospital Association.
As construction continues on the expansion of our trauma center, there are some changes on how you access the USA Health University Hospital emergency department. The drop off for the patient entrance will remain under the portico/ambulance drop off and all patient emergency parking has moved to the main lot. We also now have valet parking at the main hospital lobby Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Construction will be completed in summer 2020.
