Orange County has decided to temporarily limit gatherings and issued a shelter in place order, including The West Orange Healthcare District. This action is designed to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 and we embrace this decision, as we place the health and well-being of our staff, colleagues, community residents and business partners above all else. As a result of the announcement, all board and committee meetings have been postponed or canceled. Our staff have moved to a work at home model where email and phones are being monitored.   We will update our website for any Board or Committee meetings planned.  Take care and Be Safe!


Who We Are

We were created in 1949 as an “independent special healthcare district” and today, we’ve invested more than $130 million directly into programs and projects that make our residents healthier.

But we’re much more than a grant-making organization. We take a holistic approach to community health and routinely convene leaders, facilitate conversations, promote partnerships and champion initiatives that address key health issues in our community, from chronic diseases and lifestyle choices to accessing healthy food.

Working together, we believe west Orange County can become the healthiest community in the nation. A lofty goal? Yes, and that’s what we like about it. Important change comes from big ideas and we can’t think of anything more important than living long, healthy lives.
