PELHAM, Ala. -- Ascension St. Vincent's has asked for state approval to build a freestanding emergency department, primary care, and multispecialty space in Pelham. The project is designed to meet the growing need for healthcare services in the community and has strong support from city officials in Pelham and across Shelby County. 

"We all want our citizens to receive the best possible care at convenient locations,” said Pelham Mayor Gary W. Waters.“But as a retired fire chief, I know there are times when minutes count, and a facility like this could make the difference between life or death. We are thrilled for Ascension St. Vincent’s to serve our citizens when they are most in need of help.” 

The site for the new facility is located off Interstate 65 at exit 242, more commonly known as the "tank farm exit." In addition to emergency services, the building will provide space for Ascension St. Vincents and UAB Medicine to offer patients access to primary and specialty care.
