Overview of Palo Verde Hospital

Not many people realize that the Palo Verde Hospital has its origins in the American Legion. In 1925, the American Legion turned over its clubhouse to be used as a hospital, named Palo Verde Health Center. In 1937, the facility we now call PVH opened its doors as an official unit of the County Medical Administration, as the Blythe Branch of Riverside County Hospital. Over the years, the hospital has changed hands and on more than one occasion was temporarily closed – especially during our hot summer months. In 1948, a non-profit corporation was formed to create what is now known as the Palo Verde Healthcare District.

The Palo Verde Hospital has completed two expansion projects – one in 1962 and again in 1979. As a result, Palo Verde Hospital currently has 51 patients beds, including 4 intensive care beds and 2 surgical suites. We offer a full range of services from maternity to end of life palliative and/or hospice care.

We strive to be good partners to our community members through our donations of time and funds to such projects as the local schools, youth sports programs, scholarships and various service clubs who are active in our community.
