NorthBay Medical Center

Who We Are

Community-Based, Nonprofit: An Important Difference

NorthBay Healthcare opened its doors to patients in 1960 and remains Solano County’s only locally based, locally managed nonprofit health care organization. NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield and NorthBay VacaValley Hospital in Vacaville are Magnet-certified, a designation conferred to only 8.28 percent of all hospitals, in recognition of nursing excellence.

Our hospitals offer 24-hour emergency care, intensive care, and sophisticated surgical, orthopedic and diagnostic services. Both have maintained accreditation from The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Our Emergency Departments include accredited Chest Pain Centers for acute cardiac care, and NorthBay Medical Center is a Primary Stroke Center.

The 154-bed NorthBay Medical Center is a center of excellence for maternal and child services. Our Newborn Intensive Care Unit provides the most sophisticated services for premature or ill newborns within 50 miles. The hospital also hosts NorthBay Heart & Vascular Center, the county’s first verified Level II Trauma Center and the Center for Neuroscience. NorthBay VacaValley has 50 beds and provides support for NorthBay Cancer Center patients, as well as patients in its Joint Replacement Program.

Our Center for Primary Care, with offices in Fairfield, Vacaville and Green Valley, comprises board-certified family practice physicians, internists and pediatricians and affiliated physician specialists throughout the Solano County region.

NorthBay has two Urgent Care Centers, in Fairfield and Vacaville, offering immediate medical attention for non-life threatening medical conditions, and is an alternative to the Emergency Room, with typically shorter waits and lower cost. Urgent care providers treat a wide range of conditions from common colds and flu to stitches and broken bones. They also offer COVID-19 testing.

Our Vision: Advancing Medicine in Our Community

We bring sophisticated medical services to Solano County by recruiting highly trained physicians and staff who are vital to outstanding patient care. Our facilities are equipped with the latest technology to facilitate cutting-edge health care.
