About the Hospital
Andalusia Regional Hospital, a 2005, 2007 and 2011 recipient of Thomson-Reuters Top 100 Hospital designation, is a 100 bed Joint Commission-accredited Acute Care Facility that has served the heart of South Alabama since 1966. Offering a wide range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency and surgical services, the hospital was pleased to take part in the grand opening of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Andalusia. With the addition of both 21st Century Oncology for Radiation Oncology and Sacred Heart Medical Oncology, our patients will not have to travel long distances for oncological care and treatment. As a compliment to this new service, ARH added a valuable diagnostic tool with PET Scan service.
Andalusia Regional Hospital was also awarded a $10,000 grant through the Alabama Department of Public Health in March, 2012. The program links Andalusia Regional Medical staff with stroke specialists using two-way video. This grant also provides a one-year sponsorship of the Get With The Guidelines – Stroke quality improvement program – with the goal of increasing access to stroke care and improving long-term patient outcomes.

Springdale, situated in the heart of Andalusia, on East Three Notch Street, is a large home on approximately four acres that was constructed by John G. Scherf in the early 1930’s. Now owned by the City of Andalusia, Springdale is available for event use by the citizens of Andalusia.
South Alabama offers a multitude of recreational opportunities. Just southwest of Andalusia is the beautiful 83,000-acre Conecuh National Forest that attracts visitors who want to swim, hike, camp, picnic and fish. Blue Lake and Open Pond are both located in the National Forest, which is known for its tall trees, crystal clear spring-fed lakes and clean fresh air. North of Andalusia, the 2,700-acre Gantt Lake and the 700-acre Point A Lake, offer fishing, boating and water sports. Nearby Point A Park has camping and picnicking facilities. For hunters, several nearby wildlife management areas feature an abundance of dove, quail, turkey, duck and deer.
Currently the Department of Leisure Services maintains seven parks (Johnson Park, the Complex, Coleman Pool & Park, Cooper Pool & Park, Robinson Park, Dream Park, and Kirkpatrick Park). There are six tennis courts at LBWCC and 13 ball fields at the Complex and Johnson Park.
