Executive Director, Facilities Management & Construction
Contra Costa Regional Medical Center is a full-service county hospital and offers a complete array of patient-centered health care services delivered in a beautiful facility in Martinez, California, a suburb of San Francisco. For more than a century, Contra Costa’s public hospital has been providing quality health care services to the entire community.
Patients of Contra Costa Regional Medical Center (CCRMC) know they are receiving excellent medical care. But more than just quality medical care, CCRMC’s 155,000 patients also receive compassionate care. That is because it has been CCRMC’s philosophy from the beginning to respect the dignity of the patient and extend compassionate and personalized care to all.
With an annual budget of $785 million, CCRMC is the largest division of Contra Costa Health Services, the County’s health department, whose mission is to care for and improve the health of all people in Contra Costa County, with special attention to those who are most vulnerable to health problems. Public hospitals like CCRMC play a critical role in providing health care, and they are proud of their role as the health care safety-net for vulnerable populations. CCRMC is rooted in the region it serves. Contra Costa’s state-of-the-art medical center is the culmination of intensive discussion, dozens of evaluative studies, and extensive consultation related to the future of the County’s public hospital. Ultimately, it was determined that CCRMC’s unique role as an essential community provider could not be replaced by any other single hospital, or combination of hospitals in the region.
The 167-bed medical center is fully equipped with the most-up-to-date seismic-safety features and high-tech medical apparatus, including a sophisticated and energy-efficient climate control system designed to maximize the comfort of patients and staff. CCRMC has enhanced its computer information network for easier registration and improved availability of patient medical histories to health care professionals for clinical decisions. In short, CCRMC does everything it can do to serve its patients better.
