Crestwood Medical Center

Crestwood Medical Center is a 180-bed acute care community hospital with approximately 1,300 healthcare professionals and a mission to improve our patients’ quality of life and enhance the well-being of our community by providing exceptional care and service in an environment that is compassionate, safe, efficient, and team-oriented. Crestwood Medical Center is the primary training location for the Internal Medicine and Family Medicine Residency programs with services that include an emergency department, inpatient internal medicine, family medicine, obstetrics, and surgical services as well as diagnostic imaging, laboratory, nutrition, pediatrics and pharmacy services. Our on-campus ambulatory clinics include primary care, medicine and surgical subspecialties, pain management, wound care, rehabilitation services, an ALS clinic, sleep lab and two GME Continuity Clinics.

Crestwood Medical Center is also a busy learning organization with a strong history of training undergraduate physicians – and now with our new graduate medical education initiative, Crestwood Medical Center Internal Medicine and Family Medicine residents will work alongside faculty and hone their skills as team leaders and physician educators with third- and fourth-year medical students from the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine, Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine-Auburn, and Lincoln Memorial University – DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Our team-oriented hospital administration, medical staff, the Graduate Medical Education programs, and all other valued members of the patient care team are excited to meet and welcome the first classes of residents.

Crestwood Family Medicine Continuity Clinic

Opened in 2022, Crestwood Medical Family Medicine Continuity Clinic is where residents will maintain the health of a panel of patients. The patient panel served is both representative of the rich diversity and demographics of the ever-expanding Huntsville, Alabama community and meets the educational needs of residents throughout training. Located within 600 feet of the hospital, the FMP is fully dedicated to the residency program with over 5,000 square feet in each of two sections. Residents are supervised, trained and mentored by dedicated and qualified program leaders (program director and core faculty).

With over 115,000 family medicine patient visits in its ambulatory network, the FMP is projected to obtain 3,500 visits in its first year, over 9,000 visits in its second year, and over 20,000 visits in its third year. These projections are conservative when considering the primary care shortage within our community. Our plan is to graduate each resident with significantly more patient visits than required by graduation.

The strategic design and placement of the FMP in such close proximity to the hospital is intended to positively impact and reinforce resident and faculty well-being and safety, continuity of quality care between the inpatient and outpatient settings and support the resident’s ability to focus on their educational journey through the program. Review of practice performance metrics will occur at least quarterly by program leadership and residents to ensure the attainment and maintenance of quality education, lifelong learning, performance improvement and expansion of primary care in our community.

Crestwood Internal Medicine Continuity Clinic

Opening in winter 2024, Crestwood Internal Medicine Continuity Clinic is where Internal Medicine residents will receive and maintain the health of their panel of patients. Continuity of care coupled with mentoring residents and modeling outpatient care will prepare our graduates with the confidence necessary for success in outpatient practice.
