Adventist Health is a not-for-profit health care organization of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Its headquarters are in Roseville, California. In 2018 it had 19 hospitals in California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington.[1]

Despite similar names, it is not affiliated with Maryland-based Adventist HealthCare, or the Florida-based AdventHealth.

History[edit]

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.[2] The conferences then transferred the hospitals to the system, creating the entities Northwest Medical Foundation, and Adventist Health Services at the union level.[2] In 1980 they merged creating Adventist Health System/West, which changed its name to Adventist Health in 1995.[2] The headquarters for Adventist Health used to be in Los Angeles.[2] But Adventist Health worried about the smaller hospitals being neglected, so the headquarters were moved to Roseville, California in 1982. In 1985 a new headquarters was built in Roseville.[2]
