About El Camino Hospital

El Camino Hospital is a nonprofit organization with hospital campuses in Mountain View, California and Los Gatos, California. Our hospitals have served communities in the South San Francisco Bay Area for more than 50 years. We strive to provide superlative care by focusing on patients’ needs, rather than on shareholders’ demands, and by incorporating the latest, proven medical technology and attracting the best medical staff and affiliated physicians.

Ours is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to improve the health and well being of the community. Our hospital is fully accredited by The Joint Commission, the California Department of Public Health and the California Medical Association. We are a member of the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California, the Association of California Healthcare Districts, and the American Hospital Association.

Our organization has a long history of contributing to the South Bay community; we will continue to enhance our contributions to the community in the years to come.

Community Health Needs Assessment

The community health needs assessment (CHNA) is intended to inform the investment of community benefit funds in order to improve the health of those living in the community that the hospital belongs to. In order to understand the biggest health needs in the hospital's community, this CHNA combines public health data with community input gathered from public health experts, front line service providers, patients, and residents.
