FLORENCE — Some of the critical care patients have left Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital and are arriving at the new North Alabama Medical Center on Veterans Drive and Helton Drive.

The first patient to make the move to the new hospital was Betty Glenn of Russellville.
Glenn was ready and “anxious” for the ambulance ride to the new facility on Veterans Drive and Helton Drive early this morning.
Hospital officials said 140 patients will be moved today.
