Carraway Medical Center: What Does the Future Hold?

Birmingham City Councilor Maxine Parker will hold a meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) morning to discuss possible future uses of the old Carraway Medical Center facility in north Birmingham.  The meeting will be held at 8 AM in the Members’ Room at the Birmingham Museum of Art (free parking is available behind the museum).  The meeting comes after officials from Bryce Hospital in Tuscaloosa decided not to relocate to Carraway.  If you’re interested, come on down.

    The husband is really unhappy abt the Bryce decision. Not that it makes a grain of difference.

    The meeting ended up being a waste of time — just a grandstanding opportunity for some elected officials. They didn’t even review the printed presentation, which still had “Bryce Hospital” photoshopped onto the Carraway building. There are a few ideas floating around now that Bryce has fallen through, but no concrete proposals. John Rogers is furious that Tuscaloosa is getting $20 million in work force development money to rebuild Bryce. Apparently, the money is supposed to be used to bring in new industry. I guess the legislature will waste some of its time dealing with the dispute, although he says he doesn’t want to fight that battle. Joy…

    Carraway Medical Center. As a long time nurse, I was wandering about using Carraway for a geriatric special Memory Unit whick would require a closed unit, a Hospice Hospital and an Upscalled Cancer Institute where families could have better accomidations comparable to home. Since there are no good restaurants near by, that could be incorporated with a motel where family members could stay in time of need. It’s a shame to waste such a fine facility. I am a Cullman resident and know Cullman, Jefferson, Blount and other counties would utilize these services.
