About Us

Arroyo Grande Community Hospital is a full-service, medical facility located in the heart of San Luis Obispo County. Established in 1961 and open to the public on April 15, 1962, Arroyo Grande is a licensed 65 bed hospital offering health care services to central coast residents.

In June of 2004, Arroyo Grande was acquired by Dignity Health, a faith based, not-for-profit hospital. Dignity Health, headquartered in San Francisco, is a system of hospitals and medical centers in California, Arizona and Nevada.

Founded in 1986, it is one of the nation's largest not-for-profit health care systems and the largest Catholic health care system based in the Western United States.

In 2007, we opened a satellite facility, the Coastal Cancer Care and Diagnostics Center in Pismo Beach.

In October of 2014, we celebrated five years as a Dignity Health hospital and we continue to expand our services to meet the growing needs of the community.
