Message from Kelli Powers our President:

"When we say breathe easier and deliver closer to home, we want to let the mom-to-be in our area know that Decatur Morgan Hospital has served as the premier provider of women’s health care in Morgan County for more than 100 years. Our board-certified OBs and the skilled and experienced nursing staff work with moms-to-be and their families to develop a birth and care plan that is right for her. It would be our privilege to be where you choose to deliver your baby."
