Trussville, Alabama is nicknamed “The Gateway to Happy Living”.  It’s a city where many younger families are relocating. Home buyers in this suburb of Birmingham will find a range of homes from large single-family houses on suburban streets to homes on private wooded lots. Trussville’s bustling Main Street is full of dining and shopping for residents to enjoy. Residents can grab a bite to eat at Cafe on Main or Golden Rule Barbecue.  They can shop locally at specialty stores like Cahaba Cycles and the Trussville Antique Mall.
 
 
Trussville residents are just about a 20-minute drive away from the shopping, dining, and nightlife in downtown Birmingham too. In 2005, Trussville was named the 56th Most Livable City in the USA by CNN Money for its great schools, thriving job market, and safe streets. It also has lovingly been called “Mayberry” for its community feeling of knowing your neighbors and people sharing the same goal for their hometown with wonderful churches, schools and its more than 75 restaurants to enjoy.

St. Vincent’s East is licensed for 362 beds and is located just 20 minutes from downtown. It sits between Irondale and Trussville, AL.  It is a general medical and surgical facility that offers a variety of programs and services to fit individual, corporate, and community needs. It is the second largest Ascension hospital in the Birmingham area.  It is situated on a hill overlooking the beautiful community of Trussville, AL.  This hospital has a suburban feel which appeals to those outlying communities that prefer not to have to drive downtown.
