From Our Leadership

Dear Community Members,

We invite you to read the FY 2019 Community Benefit Report for El Camino Healthcare District and El Camino Hospital, “Improving Health, Changing Lives.” The report highlights our financial investment in community health and how we, together with our partners, are responding to the unmet health needs of our neighbors, particularly the most vulnerable and underserved. In FY 2019 our investments included:

  • El Camino Hospital Total Community Benefit: $64.9 million serving 117,860 people, including $3.8 million for grants and sponsorships.
  • El Camino Healthcare District Community Benefit: $7.2 million in grants and sponsorships serving 75,140 people.
  • $11 million combined total of 103 grants and 71 sponsorships.

The El Camino Hospital Total Community Benefit included charity care and unreimbursed MediCal for nearly 12,000 patients at our two hospitals. Through community grants, the District and the Hospital both fund local efforts to provide access to quality health and wellness services through grant partnerships with the safety net clinics, school districts and nonprofit organizations highlighted in this report.

These investments promote better health, often through culturally relevant, multilingual programs recognizing the rich diversity of our community. Highlights of our combined community grants programs from both the District and Hospital include:

  • 110,990 students at local schools received care from nurses, health screenings, mental health counseling, physical activity and nutrition programs.
  • 26,900 people received free primary care and chronic disease management services.
  • 10,980 people received free mental health services.

In response to growing mental health needs, we have increased our grants program and welcome the opening of the new Taube Pavilion with additional inpatient beds and a dedicated women’s unit. On all fronts, we are ensuring there are more mental health services in schools, community clinics, and through our Scrivner Center for Mental Health & Addiction Services.

Organizational Overview

El Camino Healthcare District was formed pursuant to the California Local Health Care District Law (California Health and Safety Code Sections 32000 et seq.) in the 1950s. The District’s purpose is to establish, maintain and operate, or provide assistance in the operation of one or more health facilities (as that term is defined in the California Health and Safety Code Section 1250) or health services at any location within or without the territorial limits of the District, for the benefit of the District and the people served by the District, and to do any and all other acts and things necessary to carry out the provisions of the District’s Bylaws and the Local Health Care District Law. The District’s boundaries encompass Mountain View and Los Altos, large portions of Sunnyvale and Los Altos Hills, and small sections of Cupertino, Santa Clara and Palo Alto. The District is governed by a five-member publicly elected Board and provides oversight of El Camino Hospital, a nonprofit community hospital. The District also administers a Community Benefit Program, which addresses unmet health needs through grants and collaborations with local schools, nonprofits, and social and health service providers.

El Camino Health aims to deliver a healthcare experience that is personalized and designed around an individual’s needs. El Camino Health includes two nonprofit acute care hospitals in Los Gatos and Mountain View and urgent care, multi-specialty care and primary care locations across Santa Clara County. Hospital key medical specialties include cancer, heart and vascular, lifestyle medicine, men’s health, mental health and addictions, pulmonology, mother-baby, orthopedic and spine, stroke, urology and women's health. Affiliated partners include Silicon Valley Medical Development, El Camino Health Foundation and Concern.

Through the Community Benefit Grant Program, El Camino Health partners with organizations working to address the unmet health needs of underserved and at-risk community members in an effort to improve the overall health and well-being of the community. The Community Benefit Grant Program provides grants and sponsorships for programs focusing on preventing disease, improving mental health, and making healthy choices and healthcare more accessible.
