The Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation
The Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Fort Bragg, California. We are a stand-alone 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to provide healthcare support by funding essential equipment, capital projects and core services for the Mendocino Coast Healthcare District, which includes the Mendocino Coast District Hospital.
The Foundation is the vehicle through which the community invests its money in the Mendocino Coast Healthcare District and has the responsibility to take care of the community’s investments to support the existence of a Hospital and healthcare services that meet the community’s needs. The Foundation accomplishes this by raising money to fund specific projects for the Healthcare District.
The Mendocino Coast District Hospital
The Mendocino Coast District Hospital (MCDH) is a 25-bed acute care hospital, providing emergency, inpatient and outpatient services. It 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 for our community.
The hospital offers residents the peace of mind that comes from knowing emergency help is readily available. Medical care can be provided locally, keeping families together as much as possible. Equally, the hospital could not exist without the community support that built it and continues to sustain it.
MCDH plays a vital role in the overall health and well-being of the community, and is a key element in the healthcare system serving their needs.
