Glenn Medical Center History

Glenn Medical Center was constructed in 1949 and since that time has served the medical needs of Glenn County and surrounding area residents. Glenn Medical Center is the only Emergency Department and acute care hospital in Glenn County, providing much needed care for travelers on Interstate 5, and visitors to our local Thunderhill Raceway Park.

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s a new program was approved by the Federal Government titled “Critical Access Hospital” (CAH). Small, rural facilities operating less than 25 inpatient beds and who were at least 35 miles away from another acute care hospital could apply for this special CAH designation. The advantage to becoming a CAH was improved reimbursement for services provided to Medicare and Medi-Cal patients, the majority of rural patients. While this new program resulted in saving many rural hospitals, operating aging rural healthcare facilities has remained a financial challenge.

Although the hospital had been operated by Glenn County for many years, in 1995 the Glenn County Board of Supervisors decided to lease operations to Enloe Medical Center in Chico, California. Enloe Medical Center assumed control of the operations of Glenn Medical Center in 1995 and continued to manage the hospital through June 30, 2006. In 2006, the Glenn County Board of Supervisors assigned the operating lease to Glenn Medical Center, Inc. (d/b/a, Glenn Medical Center), a 501c(3) not for profit corporation. Glenn County owns the land and buildings which are leased to GMC, Inc. GMC, Inc. took over the operating lease on July 1, 2006 and the board of GMC, Inc. continues to direct operations to this day.

However, after years of declining revenue and increasing expenses, Glenn Medical Center was on the verge of bankruptcy and prepared to close the doors forever in December 2017. GMC hospital administration reached out to American Advanced Management Group (AAMG), a Northern California based healthcare management group that had reopened neighboring Colusa Medical Center after it succumbed to bankruptcy. GMC Inc. is thankful that AAMG agreed to save Glenn Medical Center, and since December 2017 AAMG has focused on recruiting quality physicians, cosmetic updates, equipment improvements, quality patient care and community involvement. Once again, Glenn county residents have a medical center they can rely on and be proud of.

Glenn Medical Center appreciates the support of Glenn County and surrounding area residents and encourages everyone to continue this support to ensure that there is always an acute care hospital in Glenn County offering 24/7 emergency services, in-patient care, rehabilitation services, family practice clinics, on site laboratory and radiology including CT and MRI.
