Mendocino Coast District Hospital History

A Hospital With Rural Critical Access Status

Mendocino Coast District Hospital, a 25-bed acute care hospital, was dedicated on June 26, 1971 following a grass-roots effort to pass a hospital district initiative on the January, 1967 ballot. Since then MCDH has taken its place as an important resource of our community. The Hospital offers residents the peace of mind that comes from knowing emergency help is readily available and medical care often can be provided locally, keeping families together as much as possible. Conversely, the hospital could not exist without the community support that built it and continues to sustain it.
