Year Established: 1919
Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital was established in 1919, the result of community efforts to establish a general acute care facility for Northwest Alabama. The facility is named in memory of Eliza, the daughter... more of Captain Alexander and Camilla Coffee, whose generous donation contributed toward the purchase of the first building used as ECM Hospital.

Thanks again guys. Jan 11
This ER is a JOKE! I have a heart condition that I had surgery on 15 yrs ago. From time to time it still acts up. Went in with my resting hr 145. Incompetent ER doc said I was just depressed, anxious and... more needed to calm down!! He had not even looked at my past medical history. Since I am only 32 it couldn't be my heart! The RUDE, COCKY and HATEFUL male nurse stuck me 3 times before I had to threaten to leave. He finally got someone else. Also another time I was admitted for pancreatitis and my name sticker was put on someone else's bloodwork. If I had not been paying attention I would have been treated by the wrong bloodwork! I see several lawsuits in their future!
Incompetence!! Doctor did not ask about medicine allergies and prescribed medication that I was allergic to. THANK GOD FOR PHARMACIST. He caught it. I have been to ECM 4 times this year and 3 of those... more 4 have been VERY DISAPPOINTING. One time was discharged with NO INSTRUCTIONS and they forgot to give me my prescriptions also. I called them when I realized it and was told couldn’t have after you leave. I have always gone to ECM and even defended it when people were talking bad about it. The time has changed I have experienced the BAD!
