A Century of Care

Dr. Enloe Circa 1918.Dr. Newton Thomas Enloe opened Enloe Hospital in 1913 after migrating to Northern California from Missouri. The original hospital was on Flume Street in Chico. It moved to its current location on the Esplanade in 1937.

Dr. Enloe invested his life in the North Valley making sure residents received excellent medical care.

Today, Enloe is the region’s most comprehensive medical center and one of the few hospitals in California still locally governed.

The ‘Local’ Factor

Enloe is one of the few California hospitals still locally governed. The hospital’s community-based, volunteer Board of Trustees protects this local status. They assure that dollars earned are reinvested to improve the health of the community.

The idea of “local” is built into everything we offer — from the food we serve in our café to the classes and support groups that meet in our facilities.

Compassionate Care

Enloe is committed to providing a nurturing environment that promotes healing of the body, mind and spirit.

We surround patients with caring staff and supportive resources to help them take charge of their health. 

As a Planetree hospital, Enloe aims to personalize, demystify and humanize health care. Learn about Planetree at Enloe.
