ACHD’s Definition of Healthcare District

ACHD's definition of a healthcare district

The definition of a healthcare district, according to ACHD, is as follows:

“Healthcare districts are public entities that provide community-based healthcare services to residents throughout the state. They respond to the needs in their district by providing a range of services, which may include a hospital, clinic, skilled nursing facility or emergency medical services; as well as education and wellness programs. Each of California's healthcare districts is governed by a locally elected Board of Trustees who are directly accountable to the communities they serve.”

To demonstrate compliance, provide a link to ACHD's definition of a healthcare district located on your website.
