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: two of
the three existing hospitals had lost their compliance status, making
them ineligible to receive government funding and the County was not interested
in continuing to provide hospital based services.
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.
For nearly 50 years, we have met the needs of our patients and community
with compassion and quality 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.
