Our Vision

Since 1907, Rideout Health has been committed to quality healthcare. It’s been that way ever since a remarkable woman from a pioneering California family, Phebe Rideout, donated her family’s Marysville mansion for a public hospital.

The 4,000-square-foot home at the corner of Fifth and E Streets was transformed into a hospital that grew over the course of a century into a multi-faceted healthcare organization serving patients throughout our Northern California region.

For the past five years, along with fulfilling its mission to deliver quality care to our community, Rideout Health has been focused on realizing its vision of a regional medical center, offering advanced medicine and a full continuum of healthcare services.

Cost controls, increased efficiencies, quality score improvements, technology investments, and recruiting the best and brightest medical professionals, have all played a part in the pursuit of this vision. Much hard work by many has taken us a giant step closer to making that vision a reality.

Our current construction program has already expanded the footprint and facilities of the Rideout campus in Marysville, which will soon occupy six square blocks of this historic city. Completed phases have doubled the size of our renowned Rideout Cancer Center, a partnership with UC Davis Health System, and significantly expanded our Emergency Department, a Level III trauma center, STEMI-receiving center and base hospital for emergency services in the region.

In 2016, we’ll see the culmination of this significant expansion program with the opening of the Rideout Regional Medical Center, with a new six-level hospital building connected to the current structure, and a rooftop Heliport for Life Flight operations.
