Marshall's Rich History

In the late 1950's a group of local citizens saw a great need for improved healthcare services in El Dorado County. The citizens formed a committee to petition the state of California for a nonprofit charter under which a hospital could be built and operated. As a result, plans were drawn, funds were solicited, and land was donated by Michigan California lumber company.

A group of dedicated employees worked hard to make the original 30-bed hospital a success.

Marshall derives its name from the pioneer James Marshall, whose 1848 gold discovery at nearby Sutter’s Mill sparked the California Gold Rush. Marshall commemorated its 60th anniversary in 2019.
