Cultivating a Healthy Community

In 1949, the District was founded to help rural residents gain access to basic medical services. By 2012, due to the exponential growth of the community and their desire to make a larger impact, the District sold its brick-and-mortar assets and transitioned from a behind-the-scenes administrator to an active healthcare investor.

In just 10 years, the District leveraged $181 million from the sale to invest more than $245 million into the community. In its73-year history, the focus has remained the same: how to make west Orange County the healthiest community in the nation.

The West Orange Healthcare District board of trustees recently passed a Board Resolution to file for dissolution after recently committing all remaining funds from the proceeds of selling its physical assets in 2012.
