Marin General Hospital, its Foundation, Prima Medical Foundation, and Marin Healthcare District Health Centers Unite Under MarinHealth

GREENBRAE, CA, July 30, 2019—Marin General Hospital, Marin General Hospital Foundation, Marin Healthcare District Health Centers, and Prima Medical Foundation today announced that they have come together to form a single healthcare resource, MarinHealth. The name and brand reflect the new organization’s commitment to bringing the very best healthcare to Marin and the greater North Bay.

“We are proud to share this culmination of many years of working together to deliver coordinated, patient-centric care. Thanks to our independence and the flexibility that comes with being locally owned, our organizations have been able to work together to formalize the unified system of care we already provide. MarinHealth is the foundation we will build on to deliver the best healthcare resources for many decades to come,” said Lee Domanico, Chief Executive Officer, MarinHealth.

MarinHealth includes three major entities – a hospital, foundation, and a network of expert providers:

  • MarinHealth Medical Center
    (formerly Marin General Hospital)
     
  • MarinHealth Medical Network
    (formerly Prima Medical Foundation and Marin Healthcare District Centers)
     
  • MarinHealth Foundation
    (formerly Marin General Hospital Foundation)

This combined offering provides North Bay residents with a broad spectrum of high-quality services. MarinHealth offers healthcare resources for each individual’s health needs, including primary and specialty care, emergency care, advanced surgical treatments, pregnancy and childbirth, older adult (geriatric) care, health education, and holistic wellness programs.

The fresh, modern MarinHealth identity symbolizes what MarinHealth has to offer – a gateway to expert healthcare resources for our community. “MarinHealth is an exceptional healthcare enterprise that encompasses respected local medical expertise and clinical resources with deep roots in the community,” said Bob Newbury, MD and Chief Executive Officer, MarinHealth Medical Network. “Our new name and visual identity is a reflection of the advanced approach to healthcare we deliver in the North Bay. Together we will continue to attract the best physicians and staff, and be able to better respond to healthcare business needs today and in the future.”
