Health Library and Resource Center

The Health Library and Resource Center is dedicated to helping El Camino Hospital patients, their families, and the community at large find the resources they need to make informed decisions about their health. The Health Library & Resource Center is located on the main floor of the hospital at El Camino Hospital’s Mountain View and Los Gatos campuses, but its services are also available over the phone or online. Whether you call or visit in person, the same professional research librarians who support the information needs of physicians and nurses in the hospital will be available to assist you.
