Quality of Life Health Services, Inc. owes its existence to a remarkable person, Dr. Roberta O. Watts. Dr. Watts witnessed how a unique community-based health care model brought astonishing health improvements to citizens of Ohio while she was completing a fellowship at the University of Cincinnati. Determined to improve the lives of Alabama residents in desperate need of health care, she founded Quality of Life Health Services, Inc. in 1977 in Gadsden, Alabama. In 1982, she entrusted the leadership of the organization to Mr. Wayne C. Rowe, Chief Executive Officer whose expertise has branched an expansion to 24 community health centers.
