St. Vincent?s Hospital began on 1898 by the hard work of 4 Daughters of Charity who want to provide a great health care service in a poor city. As a result, they established the hospital in a 100,000 people metropolis in Birmingham, Alabama. It opened with a 200 patient facility in a Southside mansion. Immediately they opened the hospital, it was full of patients which could not pay for the service they receive. It had the best facility, equipment and physicians of Alabama. This allowed the hospital to provide the highest quality health care service.
In the first decade, the St. Vincent?s Hospital passed through many financial crises, but it expanded to new facilities, improved the equipment as well as the programs to meet all the needs of the community. St. Vincent?s Hospital grew and increased all its services because of the dedication of its employees who were committed, and they are still, to provide a service of quality regardless of the patients economic conditions.
