A Hospital with History
In 1966, a group of concerned Madera leaders formed a coalition directed at developing the healthcare facilities available in Madera County. At that time, the community was facing a severe healthcare crisis: the two existing hospitals had lost their compliance status, making them ineligible to receive government funding.
Through their dedication and innovation, the coalition was able to build a brand new facility. Completed in 1971, Madera Community Hospital (MCH) has continued to grow from a 88-bed to a 106-bed adult acute care facility, offering a wide range of sophisticated diagnostic and treatment services.
Our nonprofit 106-bed hospital is accredited through our State License and Federally Certified. Our Women's Care Services is recognized for its excellence.
For over 40 years, we have met the needs of our patients and community with compassion and quality care. We are staffed with hundreds of experienced team members who are dedicated to providing exceptional skill with extraordinary care.
As the community has continued to grow, so have we. Here is a look back at some of the hospital's most notable moments.
