Adventist Health is a faith-based, nonprofit integrated health system serving more than 80 communities on the West Coast and in Hawaii. Founded on Seventh-day Adventist heritage and values, Adventist Health provides care in hospitals, clinics, home care agencies, hospice agencies and joint-venture retirement centers in both rural and urban communities.
In the 1960s, the General Conference transferred ownership of the hospitals in the United States to the local conferences. In 1972, the General Conference centralized the management of its healthcare facilities, creating Adventist Health Systems. The conferences then transferred the hospitals to the system, creating the entities Northwest Medical Foundation, and Adventist Health Services at the union level.
In 1980 they merged creating Adventist Health System/West, which changed its name to Adventist Health in 1995. The headquarters for Adventist Health used to be in Los Angeles. But Adventist Health worried about the smaller hospitals being neglected, so the headquarters were moved to Roseville, California in 1982. In 2019 a new Roseville shared service center replaced the corporate office opened in 1985. Roseville.
