Executive Director's Message

Executive Director 

Emily T. Marsal, Esquire


Born and raised in the beautiful Alabama Blackbelt, I understand the importance of access to healthcare resources within all regions of our state.  The mission of SHPDA is to do just that, to ensure that quality health care facilities, services, and equipment are available and accessible to the citizens of Alabama in a manner which assures continuity of care at a reasonable cost.

It is our hope that health care providers will find this website helpful in complying with mandates and hope that consumers will find the information provided is helpful to them, as well.

In addition, we will consistently strive to make the best use of tax/fee payer dollars and deliver services efficiently.

If you need more specific assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
