Redwood Memorial Hospital is a high functioning 25-bed critical access hospital with a 24/7 ED, hospitalists, orthopedics, general surgery, ophthalmology, primary care, and busy obstetrical practice.  The hospital itself is going through a major refurbishment with plans for new ICU, expansion of the OR, and new Acute Rehab Unit.  

Fortuna, California is 5 hours north of San Francisco in the Eel River Valley of Humboldt County.  Minutes from Pacific Ocean beaches and nestled in the redwood forests boasting the tallest trees in the world, Fortuna offers all the charm and intimacy of a rural town but with nearby amenities much more sophisticated.  

10 minutes north is Eureka, California, the largest city on the coast between San Francisco and Portland, Oregon.  The Fortuna-Eureka-Arcata area offers a vibrant art and theater scene, a thriving locavore tradition, and cultural and social activities backed by Humboldt State University and the College of the Redwoods.  

Besides world-class outdoor recreation (surfing, fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, ..., ....) these towns have phenomenal local foods, restaurants, schools, festivals, fairs, and traditions. 

This opportunity offers an excellent quality of life with a personally rewarding medical practice.

Choose More, Choose Humboldt

Practicing medicine in any of the vibrant and wonderful communities on California's North Coast offers:

  • Rewarding long term personal relationships with patients who appreciate their physicians.
  • Manageable practice environments that support quality care.
  • Positive, supportive, and respectful professional relationships with colleagues, hospitals, and the health care community.
  • Large and challenging patient base that offers interesting medicine and successful practices.  We are the regional medical center for a geographic area larger than some eastern states.

Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, named our coastal redwood forests as the #1 destination in the US for 2018.  We are minutes from pristine Pacific Ocean beaches and surrounded by  ancient redwoods that are the tallest trees in the world.  In 2017, Eureka was awarded a California Cultural Site designation for its history and commitment to the arts and local culture.  Humboldt has previously been recognized by Outdoor Magazine, National Geographic, Backpacker Magazine, USDA Most Scenic Rural County, and by Men’s Journal (as one of the top seven places to “buy land in paradise”).

Numerous area schools have received state and federal awards, and Humboldt State University—on 144 acres tucked into an old growth redwood grove with views of Humboldt Bay—has nearly 50 undergrad degrees and about a dozen graduate degrees, as well as one of the most impressive undergrad marine research              departments in the country.

We are rural—about five hours drive north of San Francisco—but we have sophisticated cultural and social amenities, a thriving locavore tradition, and our local regional airport has daily direct flights to and from San Francisco and Los Angeles.
