Meet some of our outstanding professionals & support staff:

SHCHD operates a small acute care district hospital, Jerold Phelps Community Hospital, in southern Humboldt County.  In some form, healthcare has been offered to the people of this community on this location since 1949.  The community hospital itself was formed in 1960, which eventually led to the formation of the Healthcare District in 1980.

Since that time there have been many changes, but the overall mission of the district has remained the same: to provide the highest level of quality care possible to serve the varying needs of our diverse population.

The hospital received Critical Access Hospital status in March, 2002, helping position us for a more sustainable future. 

District services include an acute care hospital, emergency, laboratory and radiology services, skilled nursing facility, and a Rural Health Clinic, the Southern Humboldt Community Clinic. 

With strong community support, including a supplemental property tax, SHCHD continues its work to assure quality healthcare for residents and visitors alike.
