About Us

 

Marian Regional Medical Center has been serving patients on the Central Coast for nearly 75 years. We continue to grow to meet the health care needs of our community.

 

Marian's history began in 1940 when, in response to a call for health care services in the community of Santa Maria, the Sisters of St. Francis founded Our Lady of Perpetual Help Hospital. With an unwavering mission to further the healing ministry of Jesus, the Sisters guided the hospital. In 1967, the new Marian Hospital at 1400 East Church Street was completed and dedicated. Through the coming years, many addition services, including a Heart Center, were added. In 1982, the hospital became known as Marian Medical Center.

Marian Has Been An Integral Member Of The Community Since 1940. Below Are Some Of The Hospital's Milestones:

  • In 1940, eight Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity were assigned to Santa Maria to manage and staff a hospital urgently needed by a growing community of 8,000 people.
  • In 1943, the 1,000th baby was born at Sisters’ Hospital, and by 1957, the hospital had 85 acute care beds and 15 bassinets.
  • In 1965, the Sisters broke ground on a new 125-bed hospital facility on land donated by Captain and Mrs. Allan Hancock, generous Santa Maria benefactors. The hospital opened in 1967.
  • In 1985, after a community-sponsored fund drive, Marian opened the first Kidney Dialysis Center on the Central Coast.
  • By 1987, Marian Hospital was offering an array of specialty services and changed name of Marian Hospital to Marian Medical Center. Marian also opened Marian Extended Care Center, Marian Children’s Center, Marian Home Care Services and Marian Hospice.
  • In 1994, Marian founded Marian New Life.
  • In 1996, Marian held a dedication ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Heart Center and new west wing of the Medical Center. The addition of over 44,000 square feet housed cardiovascular services with an increased number of larger surgical suites, special suites for cardiac surgery, and the modernization of other services including central supply.
  • In 1997, Marian's Oncology Program began and Marian Cancer Center and Marian Community Clinics opened. This also marked the year of Marian Medical Center’s merger with Catholic Healthcare West.
  • In 2002, a second, state of the art cardiac catheterization lab was added and, with generous community support, Marian opened Marian West.

In response to the rapidly growing population of the Santa Maria Valley and ongoing advances in medical technology, Marian Regional Medical Center built a new hospital, which opened on May 22, 2012. This further enhances the quality of care provided by Marian and enables us to meet the health care needs of the community now and in the future.

Marian Regional Medical Center is proud to be your award-winning community hospital.
