Back in the 1950s, the 18-bed St. Paul Hospital proved too small for the Livermore and Pleasanton communities. Weary of traveling to Oakland or Hayward for health care, local residents banded together to build Valley Memorial Hospital on land donated by Kaiser Paving Company in Livermore.
From that beginning, Valley Memorial developed into a two-campus health system with the opening of ValleyCare Medical Center in Pleasanton in 1991.
Stanford Health Care – ValleyCare was formed in 2015 when ValleyCare Health System became part of Stanford Health Care. For 60 years, the health system has remained non-profit and has grown along with the Tri-Valley, expanding and adding services as the needs of the people grew.
As a community-based, academic-affiliated health system, we offer award-winning, compassionate, quality care coupled with research-fueled, innovative medicine.
