The Core Values
Your Primary Care Provider
You will be assigned a Primary Care Provider (PCP) who will manage your health needs. You can choose any provider in our practice and may change your PCP, if you wish.
Clinician Directed Medical Practice
A team of health professionals (e.g. medical assistant, social worker, pharmacist, nurse manager) will work with your PCP to care for you.
We will help to address all of your needs that affect your health.
We will work with other healthcare and community facilities and share your medical information to track and monitor your health. We will use electronic technology to do this.
For Your Quality and Safety
We will make sure we treat you using the latest standards of care and will make sure you understand your treatment plan.
We are accessible 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. After office hours, you have access to speak to a Primary Care Provider by calling 205-941-4690.
Message from Chief Executive Officer
I would like to thank the Board of Directors of Alabama Regional Medical Services for the opportunity to serve the community as its Chief Executive Officer. I am a native of Birmingham and graduated from A.H. Parker High School in 1992. Upon my high school graduation, I attended Talladega College and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Accounting in 1995. Soon, thereafter, I began my professional career as a staff accountant with a regional CPA firm, and for the next five years, I assisted or lead audit teams on audit engagements of other Federally Qualified Health Centers from the Northeast, South, and Midwest regions of the country.
After working for the CPA firm, I was hired as the Chief Financial Officer of Quality of Life Health Services, Inc., one of the most successful Federally Qualified Health Centers in the state of Alabama, if not the entire country. While at Quality of Life, I attended Jacksonville State University where I obtained my Master’s Degree in Public Administration. In continuing my professional growth, in 2013, I became the Chief Financial Officer of Daughters of Charity Services in New Orleans. During my tenure, this FQHC nearly doubled in size; expanding from five facilities to nine health care clinics.
Birmingham is comparable, in population, to the city of New Orleans; however, Alabama Regional Medical Services’ service area consists of Blount, Jefferson, St. Clair, and Shelby counties, which has approximately 1,007,357 citizens; approximately 12% of this population are uninsured.
My goal as the CEO of Alabama Regional Medical Services is to increase access to primary health care to the uninsured, in our service area; specifically, the homeless population. We will attain this goal by eliminating barriers to healthcare and improving customer service in each of our current five clinics. I will also be reaching out to other safety net constituents, in our communities, to restore positive relationships and trust.
