Overview of Northern Inyo Hospital

By 1968, the Northern Inyo Hospital had gained an Acute Care Unit and a significant addition, including a lobby, patient rooms, two operating rooms, labor and delivery rooms, emergency treatment facilities, and new areas for x-ray, laboratory, and pharmacy. In 1981, advances in critical care medicine were met with the opening of the new ICU/CCU wing. Northern Inyo County Local Hospital District has weathered many challenges over the decades: changing from tax-based funding for acute care to insurance companies, Medicare, Medicaid, and Medi-Cal; increases in managed care; and increased outpatient services. Despite all of these challenges, the district has flourished due to the diligent leadership exhibited both in the hospital and in the community. The district, hospital administration, and the community have been dedicated to supporting and operating the Northern Inyo Hospital for nearly 75 years while managing to expand the auxiliary health care services available to the community through philanthropic and grant-based activities.
