For the eighth year in a row, a small area hospital is being called one of the best in the state.
Mizell Memorial officials say they've received word that the facility received the 2007 "Award of Excellence".
It takes into account a number of factors including patient satisfaction.
Mizell administrator Allen Foster says the award validates the efforts his staff has made since the late 1990's.
Besides Mizell, health care facilities in Tuscaloosa and Huntsville also received high marks from the state audit team.
