Ken Davenport, M.D.

When I was looking at opportunities to practice general surgery I was looking primarily for three things: I wanted to practice medicine in a hospital that had state of the art equipment, a well-trained group of specialists and an administration that was supportive of the physician and absolutely dedicated to patient care. I found all of these things and more at Gadsden Regional Medical Center.


Practicing at Gadsden Regional has exceeded my expectations.  The medical care here is as good, or better, than a larger healthcare market like Birmingham, where I trained. We are able to take care of the patient locally, without the need to transfer to a tertiary hospital. Gadsden also is an ideal town in which to grow a thriving practice. You have a hospital that is dedicated to your success and very proactive in physician support. Logistically, being a regional hospital, we pull from many areas around the city. Therefore, the patient base is enormous. Geographically, you are a little over an hour away from big metropolitan centers such as Chattanooga, Birmingham and Atlanta.


Again, I feel privileged to have found an opportunity to practice that is as rewarding as this one.




The mild climate and warm, friendly community is what first attracted me to Gadsden. The great interaction among the physicians and the enthusiasm of the supporting staff is what sealed the deal.

I chose to come to Gadsden because it reminded me of home, somewhere I could raise a family. It has an environment where I left I could make a difference and realize my dreams.
