Andalusia, the county seat and largest city in Covington County, is nestled among the trees overlooking the Conecuh River and just 34 miles from Interstate 65.

South Alabama offers a multitude of recreational opportunities. The 83,000-acre Conecuh National Forest attracts swimmers, hikers, campers, picnickers and fishing enthusiasts; and nearby Gantt Lake and Point A Lake promise boating, water sports and more fishing. Hunting enthusiasts can find an abundance of dove, quail, turkey, duck and deer at several local wildlife management areas. And the city maintains a number of recreational parks, including the Miracle League Field, which provides opportunities for children with mental and physical challenges to play baseball.
Andalusia Regional Hospital is an 88 bed Joint Commission-accredited Acute Care Facility that has served the heart of South Alabama since 1966. Offering a wide range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency and surgical services, the hospital was pleased to take part in the grand opening of the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Andalusia. With the addition of both 21st Century Oncology for Radiation Oncology and Sacred Heart Medical Oncology, our patients will not have to travel long distances for oncological care and treatment. As a compliment to this new service, ARH added a valuable diagnostic tool with PET Scan service.
Andalusia Regional Hospital was also awarded a $10,000 grant through the Alabama Department of Public Health in March, 2012. The program links Andalusia Regional Medical staff with stroke specialists using two-way video. This grant also provides a one-year sponsorship of the Get With The Guidelines – Stroke quality improvement program – with the goal of increasing access to stroke care and improving long-term patient outcomes.
