Community Involvement

Employees of the DCH Health System give their time and talents in service to others in West Alabama at work and in their community. Throughout the year, you'll see DCH employees volunteering their time to support community events that benefit organizations such as the March of Dimes, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.

DCH Health System employees and physicians are out in our schools, churches, malls and at civic organizations sharing practical information on how to stay healthy. And DCH sponsors health fairs and free screenings, including an annual prostate screening and a breast screening and education program.

Many support groups that help people in the community with special needs are supported by DCH, and DCH supports education by participating in the Adopt-A-School program. DCH Health System Hospitals show their support for the community by providing health care to individuals who cannot afford it. The citizens of Tuscaloosa County have helped DCH meet its mission of service. Of the county's 3-cent sales tax, 6.7 percent is set aside for DCH Regional Medical Center to help pay for health care for indigent patients from Tuscaloosa County. DCH provides 17 dollars in care to the indigent for every dollar it receives.

DCH Health System is committed to growing the next generation of health care providers through partnerships with area schools, including the University of Alabama's College of Community Health Sciences and Capstone College of Nursing
