Fresno and Bakersfield with 17,649 individuals in its direct service area.
This acute care hospital provides healthcare services spanding from
Emergency Medicine to Surgical center and a Rural Based Healthcare Clinic.
Corcoran Community Hospital opened its doors in 1949. The Corcoran District Hospital was created on December 22, 1950 to provide medical services to an area larger than the city itself. As a result of this process, the citizens of Corcoran are the owners of the Hospital. Their main responsibility is to elect a 5-member Board of Directors to govern the Hospital, to appoint its medical staff, and to manage its assets. The facility which houses Corcoran District Hospital has undergone three construction phases to expand the facility to meet growing demands for increased medical services.
A complete replacement hospital is being designed for construction at the same site. The project should commence in the spring of 2010 and be completed by the end of 2013.
The basic mission of Corcoran District Hospital is to provide for the health care needs of the community without regard to their ability to pay. Care is provided in a safe and dignified environment by competent staff, and it is supported by modern technology and techniques. All physical facilities, equipment, personnel, and management are geared at all times to the needs of the patients. The Hospital has an obligation to provide those it serves with the best possible care through the best possible resources consistent with sound professional practices and financial capabilities of the District.
