Executive Director's Message

Executive Director 

Alva M. Lambert, Esquire


I trust that the information found in SHPDA’s web site will be educational to the consumer so as to provide greater access to health care for the citizens of Alabama. Further, it is our hope that this website will assist health care providers in Alabama to comply with the requirements of the Certificate of Need program.

Finally, it is the agency’s desire to provide the greatest degree of efficiency in the delivery of governmental services so that our tax dollars can be stretched for maximum benefit to the tax/fee payer. We believe this information tool conforms with that goal.

If SHPDA can be of more specific assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
