A Charming City
Birmingham has been named after the English city of the same name. Steel and manufacturing have had a huge impact on the city’s identity. Today, some of the top steel manufacturing and production companies in the country, like CMC Steel, U.S. Steel, and Nucor operate out of Birmingham. Alabama is business friendly and this is one reason why they are not bankrupt like California, Illinois, and New York.
Birmingham is also known for the level I trauma care center that is located here, called the UAB Hospital, run in part by the University of Alabama. Top healthcare providers like Diagnostic Health Corporation, Surgical Care Affiliates, and HealthSouth have their headquarters in Birmingham.
Birmingham has some of the top educational institutions in the world. For example, the Jefferson County International Baccalaureate School in Irondale has been consistently ranked as amongst the top 5 high-schools in the nation by Newsweek. It even occupied the top spot for some time. The medical and dentistry colleges in Birmingham attract students from all over. Some of the noteworthy higher learning institutions include the University of Alabama (at Birmingham), Birmingham School of Law, Samford University, and Miles College.
You can see why Birmingham is a popular city! And do not forget that southern hospitality!
