Why Choose Enloe?

As the regional medical center for the six-county region, Enloe Medical Center is leading the way in quality, safety and patient satisfaction. Our focus on these three areas has earned us several awards from health care rating systems.

We're also the only designated Level ll Trauma Center between Sacramento and Redding. The expansive and diverse geography that surrounds us accounts for many accidents in hard-to-reach places, such as in the mountains and canyons. Since 1985, Enloe has owned and operated our own FlightCare team and we remain the only hospital in California to run our own helicopter.

In 2014, Enloe purchased a new helicopter, which you can see in this video, with generous gifts from our community, further strengthening our commitment to FlightCare and reinforcing our leadership among Planetree hospitals.

Our high-quality, compassionate care and comprehensive range of services are just some of the reasons so many people trust Enloe Medical Center with their health care needs.
