Pediatrics West celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Current staff, physicians, and retired employees attended an anniversary celebration last month.
Pediatrics West was established in 1977 and was previously affiliated with Lloyd Noland Hospital and HealthSouth Metro West. Children's of Alabama purchased the practice in 2001. Today, the practice operates two office locations in Bessemer and McAdory.
Patients at both locations are treated by Drs. Abby Allen, Tracy Brookings, Hugh Cheek, Catherine Cotney, Janet Harris, Liz Lewis, MeKeisha Pickens, Charlotte Prejean and H. Thomas Smith.
