ECHD Bylaws

The El Camino Healthcare District (ECHD) is a separate governmental entity in and of itself, formed pursuant to The Local Health Care District Law (California Health and Safety Code Sections 32000 et seq.). The District is governed by its five elected Board members, and ultimately the Board and the District are answerable to the voters of the District.


Dedicated to Our Community

We are dedicated to improving the health and well being of the people in our community. The El Camino Healthcare District (ECHD) was established by voter approval in 1956 to respond to the ever growing health care needs of the community.

Meet the ECHD Board of Directors

The ECHD Board of Directors is composed of five publicly elected or appointed representatives. As a group, these representatives oversee the assets of the ECHD, including El Camino Hospital. The five District Board members also currently serve on the nine member governing board of El Camino Hospital, which manages El Camino Hospital operations.
