Ken Underwood,
CEO Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital

Welcome to the San Benito Healthcare District’s website. Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital is proud to have served the community since 1907. Originally located on Monterey Street downtown, the hospital moved to its present location in June of 1962. Five years prior to that, in 1957, the voters of San Benito County voted for the formation of a “Hospital District”. We are pleased to bring you the following information about the District’s health care facilities, services and medical staff. It is our hope that you will have a better understanding of the wide array of services that we provide to the community.

We feel it is important to not only fulfill the healthcare needs of the community, but to be an active part of the community as well. We take pride in participating in or sponsoring numerous community events and organizations, such as the Saddle Horse Show Parade, the Light’s on Celebration, Kinship, Lulac, Mace, Jovenes de Antano and the county fair to name a few. We also realize that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow and we support the activities of baseball and softball leagues, scouting groups, swim teams, the YMCA and other youth organizations.

We have staff members and physicians who represent the hospital in the Rotary club, the Chambers of Commerce, the Hollister Downtown Association and various other civic organizations. And last but not least we recognize our wonderful volunteers who are our ambassadors to the community with the numerous hours of service they provide to the hospital. We applaud their philanthropic endeavors in providing scholarships to local students and equipment to the District in order to help us fulfill our mission of serving the community.

Our team of caring professionals is here to fulfill your needs should you or a family member require our care. Thank you for allowing us to serve you.
