When the pioneers of NorthBay Healthcare saw a need more than 60 years ago, they united to raise funds and create the community’s first hospital.
It’s that same spirit of commitment, that same dedication to advanced medicine that produced our latest and greatest feat — the addition of the North Wing at NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield.
When we opened for patients Oct. 1, it culminated years of research, planning and construction. It was a commitment to grow and a willingness to invest $200 million to ensure we will deliver compassionate care and advanced medicine, close to home.
Of course, we had help. We drew courage from our Boards of Directors who pushed for it. We earned the trust of Wall Street financiers. And we were blessed with the generosity of local philanthropists who believed in our solid track record of exceptional performance.
Some of our larger competitors may offer many similar services. But they do not offer them here, in Solano County. That’s what makes us different, and what has always made us different — our commitment to this community.
We are extremely proud of the new wing, a three-story, 77,000-square-foot miracle of modern medicine. From eight state-of-the-art surgical suites, to the latest in diagnostic imaging, we have the life-saving technology our patients need — and have come to expect at NorthBay Healthcare.
Whether you’re checking in for surgery, making a hasty trip to the emergency department or visiting a patient, we hope you’ll welcome our new addition to the NorthBay family.
Perhaps you’ll have a chance to dine in The Shaw Family Kitchen — a spacious new café on the first floor that offers both indoor and outdoor dining areas and a fresh, healthy menu. It’s named after our most generous benefactors, Al and Patt Shaw, who made a $5 million gift. They accepted the naming rights, not because they wanted acclaim, but because they hope to inspire others to support their local health care system.
We hope you’ll be inspired, too.
