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.
By 2022, the District leveraged $181 million from the sale to invest more than $245 million into the community. In its 73-year history, the focus remained the same: making west Orange County the healthiest community in the nation.
The West Orange Healthcare District board of trustees passed a Board Resolution to file for dissolution after committing all remaining funds from the proceeds of selling its physical assets in 2012. The District is officially inactive as of January 4, 2023.
