We are all in this fight together.
We’re here to care for you, but we need your help.
We exist to enhance the health and well-being of every person on Catalina Island, and our staff is committed to providing the best in outpatient health care and emergency treatment. Our Medical Center is classified as a Critical Access Hospital because it is the sole source of medical treatment on the island. The Emergency Department is staffed by exceptional physicians specifically trained in emergency medical treatment, providing care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Before COVID-19, small local hospitals like CIMC were already under financial pressure. But the pandemic has undermined the hospital’s economic foundation, even as we have intensified our efforts to protect and educate the community. Now more than ever, additional community and charitable funding have become essential for our survival. We need the community’s help to continue our mission.
MEET THE CHALLENGE, TOGETHER.
Catalina Island Medical Center needs supporters—champions—to offer their vision, talent, and financial assistance.
Our staff at Catalina Island Medical Center swiftly organized its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We implemented telemedicine and virtual care, and modified the patient flow within the hospital to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Public outreach was amplified to educate the community on proper COVID-19 protocol. Our staff has also helped keep the city’s leaders informed, so that Avalon could make decisions about closures and re-openings.
COVID-19 has created a reduction in our hospital’s revenues and increased overall cost. The current financial situation threatens the continued existence of our hospital.
We need the entire community’s help now.
