By offering the latest advances in diagnostic technology, from X-ray to MRI, a patient’s injury is safely diagnosed quickly and accurately.

“I chose this hospital because it is a small, caring, community hospital with an excellent medical team to take care of my knee replacement needs… I would recommend, without any reservation, a total knee replacement at Healdsburg District Hospital.”Barbara V. Wollner
