Our History

Home - About Us - History


Colusa Regional Medical Center has a long and honored history of serving the healthcare needs of the people of Colusa County, California, and surrounding areas.  From its humble beginning in January of 1877 as a small, rural medical facility, CRMC has grown to become a vital regional medical center, providing a level of service found only in the best rural community hospitals in the country.

Colusa Regional Medical Center operates a county-wide health system consisting of a 48 bed acute care hospital and skilled nursing facility, a Home Health Agency, and rural health clinics located in the communities of Arbuckle, Colusa, and Williams.  CRMC is licensed by the State of California and has earned full accreditation from Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality, LLC. As a nonprofit health system, CRMC's success is derived from the continued support of the people in the communities we serve; a consistent and continued belief in our mission; and, a never-ending focus on each patient's needs.  Colusa Regional Medical Centerís strength is that our employees and staff are members of this community - serving our friends, neighbors and families.

CRMC offers a wide range of services including family medical and surgical care, emergency medicine, long-term skilled nursing care, laboratory services, imaging and radiographic services, physical rehabilitation, home health and palliative care, outpatient clinic services, and other specialized programs.  The CRMC medical staff have wide ranging expertise including: family practice with gynecology, internal medicine, general surgery, endoscopy, pulmonary medicine, radiology, cardiology, emergency medicine, pathology, podiatry, and industrial medicine. 

Since becoming a community owned and governed hospital on September 1, 2001, significant capital investments have been made to improve our buildings and physical plant, program expansion, and acquisition of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and technology.  In 2006, 14,000 square feet of medical office space were constructed and brought on-line providing the most modern of clinic suites for campus physicians.  A Family Health Center was opened in 2006 in the city of Williams, one of our county's fastest growing communities.  A rural health clinic was opened in 2007 to serve the growing needs of the community of Arbuckle.  In 2008, CRMC's Physical Rehabilitation Center was opened on our hospital campus offering state-of-the-art rehab including physical, occupational and speech therapies. In 2015 a Women's Health Center was opened at Davison Drive (next to the Chamber of Commerce) which includes state of the art digital mammography equipment. The years 2009 through 2015 have seen major commitments of capital for technology, instrumentation, and equipment.

CRMC has recently redefined its mission statement to focus on patient and family centered health care.  Our new three-year Strategic Plan is the tool we developed to help us reach this goal.  It is updated regularly, and it, as well as the mission statement, can be viewed on our website.
