Fayette Medical Center (FMC) recently updated and renovated its community walking trail, located near the FMC Long-Term Care facility. The trail was originally built in the 1980s thanks to a $10,000 donation from the Georgia Pacific Foundation. The renovation was made possible through a $60,000 grant from OptumRX, and included widening the track and sidewalks, repairing the fence, and renovating the pavilion at the track.

FMC recognized as one of top hospitals in nation



Fayette Medical Center (FMC) was named earlier this year as one of the top hospitals in the nation by a national magazine publication. The hospital, which is part of the DCH Health System, was one of two hospitals in Alabama to be named to Newsweek Magazine’s “Best Hospitals for 2020,” with the other hospital being UAB in Birmingham. Hospitals were evaluated by the magazine in three areas: recommendation from peers, patient experience and key performance indicators.
