Since 1923, Russell Medical has provided valuable services and resources to advance the health status of the communities we serve. We are dedicated to foster the fullest sense of what it means to be a community partner in health, and do so with a unified commitment of our physicians, employees, and volunteers.
Russell Medical has always considered our community benefit activities as fundamental to our mission. The value we bring to the community is a responsibility we take very seriously. Our outreach activities and financial contributions to community programs are vital to affect change and make a real difference in people’s lives.
As the 2nd largest employer of Tallapoosa County, Russell Medical significantly contributes to the local economy with an annual payroll expense of over $31,000,000 and community benefits contributions of over $11.6 million annually. We are committed to substantially supporting economic development, education and workforce training initiatives, all paramount to the sustained vitality and quality of life of the Lake Martin area.
The value of the health and education of our children cannot be overstated. It affects not only an individuals’ life, but also the lives of future generations. To that end, an area of significant emphasis is in supporting the school nurse programs in the Alexander City School System. Russell Medical also expounds upon community health education services through health screenings, support groups, childbirth classes and self-help programs. We are also proud to provide athletic trainers to multiple sports teams in our service area.
In addition to the many monetary contributions Russell Medical makes to regional organizations, we also contribute human resources. Our active involvement in the community helps make it a better place to live, work and raise families. This involvement ranges from serving on various boards and advisory councils to hands-on activities and participation.
Russell Medical strives to be the healthcare provider of choice for the communities we serve. It is our privilege and commitment to deliver exceptional, personalized health care to the citizens of East Central Alabama.
