Healthcare

Hoover residents have immediate access to world-class healthcare.  There are 11 hospitals in Jefferson and Shelby Counties, where Hoover's city boundaries span.  Two of the most notable facilities include the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital and Children’s of Alabama.

  • UAB Hospital is the third largest public hospital in the United States, and 10 of UAB’s specialties ranked among the nation’s top 50 programs of their kind in the 2017-2018 Best Hospitals report from U.S. News and World Report.
  • Children’s of Alabama is the third largest pediatric medical facility in the United States, treating patients from across the nation.

Hoover is also home to two standalone emergency rooms, flanking the city geographically on its eastern and western sides. These facilities provide immediate, quality, acute care services to area residents.
