Our History

The hospital opened its doors in 1960 as a 146-bed facility called the Community Hospital of San Gabriel. In the mid 1980's, the hospital's name was changed to San Gabriel Valley Medical Center (SGVMC) to reflect a significant expansion in bed capacity and breadth of services offered. Over the years, the hospital has continued to expand its services to meet the needs of the residents of the San Gabriel Valley and beyond. Today, our now 273-bed hospital is considered one of the premier healthcare facilities in the San Gabriel Valley. SGVMC is a proud affiliate of AHMC Healthcare Inc.
