Dothan is about a two hour drive from Montgomery, the state’s capital, and about three hours from Birmingham or Atlanta.
Our medical staff now includes more than 350 physicians, representing virtually every medical specialty, as well as about 900 nurses, which 90 percent are RNs. More than 90 percent of SAMC’s physicians are board-certified – compared to the national average of 60 percent.

At SAMC, we have increased employee, nurse and physician involvement in hospital initiatives to ensure quality and improve patient care. Examples include Care Coordination Huddles, a care team review of patients on a daily basis to ensure care is being delivered in an efficient and effective manner.

We’re growing and looking for exceptional physicians and allied health professionals. Explore open positions.
