MMC has been delivering health care services since 1951 to the community of Alturas, and the surrounding area. The current facility was built in 1954.
In 2010, the Last Frontier Healthcare District was formed and Modoc Medical Center transitioned from a county-owned facility to a Healthcare District. With the establishment of a Healthcare District and the passing of a tax to support MMC, the facility has been able to continue to operate and enhance its capability to provide health care to the community.
Our mission at Modoc Medical Center is to elevate the provision of health care by creating a partnership with our patients, employees, businesses, and the community. Embedded in this mission statement is the fundamental belief that our success will depend on our ability to provide quality healthcare services to our patients and establish processes and a culture that will put our patients at the center of what we do.
