It All Started in 1987…

The NorthBay VacaValley Hospital Campus opened in 1987, where acres of fruit orchards once grew. Back then, the hospital was still surrounded by greenery, but today, homes, a fire station and a shopping center are its closest neighbors. The front of hospital once featured a covered walkway.

Was it really only 25 years ago that a prune orchard in rural Vacaville gave birth to NorthBay VacaValley Hospital? Yes, time flies, when you’re saving lives and advancing medicine.

In this issue of Wellspring, you’ll meet some of the movers and shakers who were here at the beginning—including some who are no longer with us—but who made monumental contributions to the community.

You’ll hear some of the lore—no fiction, only fact—about the early days, the milestones and the memories.

Not only do we offer a celebrated joint replacement program, but NorthBay VacaValley Hospital installed the first helipad in town and a modern, 10,000-square-foot emergency room facility ready to help you in your time of need.
