As far as hospitals go, there are 2, Regional Medical Center and Stringfellow Memorial. Regional Medical Center (RMC) is the larger of the two and offers more in the way of patient services. You can visit their website at rmccares.org. I'm not sure if Stringfellow has a website or not, I guess you could always try and Google it. I grew up and went to school/college in the Anniston area, so I am only speaking from my experience of having lived there as I haven't worked at either hospital. I would look at apartments in the Oxford/Golden Springs area as this is the more thriving area of the county, more places to eat and shop and generally safer.
