El Camino Hospital is a non-profit hospital with 420 beds (Mountain View Main Campus)[1] based on a 41-acre (17 ha) campus in Mountain View, California. There is a second, smaller hospital campus, El Camino Hospital, Los Gatos, in Los Gatos, with additional satellite clinics in the West Valley/Lower Peninsula area of Silicon Valley. Since September 2017, the CEO has been Dan Woods.[2]

El Camino Hospital serves residents in the El Camino Healthcare District, a special tax district[2] that includes Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and portions of Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, and Cupertino,[3] as well as people in surrounding communities. The hospital opened in 1961 following a successful ballot initiative in 1956 to establish the tax district and fund the construction of the hospital with $7.3 million in bonds.[4] In 2009 it bought the former Community Hospital of Los Gatos and renamed it El Camino Hospital Los Gatos.[5] Land was acquired in 2016 for a campus in San Jose.[3]

El Camino Hospital has several times been designated a nursing magnet hospital by the American Nursing Credentialing Center.[6] Specialties include cardiac care, dialysis, cancer care, maternal child health services, orthopedics, neurosurgery and behavioral health.
