Seneca Healthcare District was established in 1952
to meet the healthcare needs of the area residents. Seneca
Healthcare District, a public general acute care facility, receives
tax support and is a political subdivision of the State of
California. The existing hospital began operation in 1954. Much of
the original acute care structure is still in use today; however, it
has been remodeled continuously.
In 1976, a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) was approved by a vote of
the district residents and was constructed as a south wing to the
existing hospital. The SNF provides for patients to be transferred
from acute care to SNF and not leave the area.
Seneca hospital has 10 acute care beds and 16 skilled nursing/long
term care beds. Other services provided by the District include
outpatient laboratory and x-ray services including mammography,
sonography, and CT scanning including bone density, in-house
pharmacy, hospice, anesthesia, inpatient and outpatient surgical
services, stress testing, respiratory care, nutritional counseling,
EKG, and patient education.
Additionally, we provide emergency services. The emergency room has
a physician on call 24 hours daily. Emergency response is provided
by the Chester Fire Department, Westwood Fire Department and the
Peninsula Fire Department ambulances. The ambulance services are
staffed by Paramedics and/or Emergency Medical Technicians qualified
to deliver advanced cardiac life support. Emergency transfers to
hospitals in Chico, Reno, or other urban areas are available by
aircraft and ground transport.
In 1996, a hospital-based outpatient clinic including family
practice physicians, surgeons, and consulting specialists was
established. The District's medical staff represents specialties in
cardiology, internal medicine, orthopedics, pathology, pediatrics,
radiology, podiatry, gastroenterology, ophthalmology, and urology.
The District is pleased to acknowledge the support of over 150
volunteers who provide services through membership in the Seneca
Hospital Auxiliary, Retired Seniors Volunteer Program, and Sierra
