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.
