Northern Inyo Hospital is a small 25-bed critical access not-for-profit district hospital in scenic Bishop, California. Accredited by the Joint Commission, Northern Inyo Hospital has been providing high quality healthcare in the Eastern Sierra since 1946. Northern Inyo Hospital is a full service critical access hospital including 24-hour emergency care services.

Northern Inyo County Local Hospital District was the very first hospital district created in the state. Board members of the old “Bishop Community Hospital” were instrumental in securing passage of the necessary legislative authority to form such districts.

Northern Inyo Hospital, in its present location, was completed and began caring for people in 1949. Growth in the communities and in recreational activities brought more people seeking medical help.

An addition was built in 1968, encompassing the lobby, patient rooms, two operating rooms, labor and delivery rooms, emergency treatment facilities and new areas for x-ray, laboratory and pharmacy.

In 1981, advances in critical care medicine were met with the opening of the new ICU/CCU wing.

Presently, the hospital is in the midst of another building project to continue the high quality of health care services provided locally, to conform with earthquake safety standards, expand the range of emergency care services, upgrade medical technology and facilities, and improve the outpatient services including radiology and surgery.
