|Family Health Services|
In October 1918, the Solano County Board of Supervisors opened the Solano County Public Hospital on West Texas Street in Fairfield. The facility was a full service 50 bed hospital that offered surgical, emergency, laboratory, radiology, long term care, and outpatient primary care services. Staffing included 12 to 15 full time medical doctors and 30 to 40 nursing and ancillary staff. The facility cared for Solano County's indigents, Medi-Cal recipients, and prisoners from the County jail. The County Hospital closed in June 1973.
Although the hospital closed, the outpatient primary care clinics continue to operate and see patients five days a week, with some weekend and evening hours offered. The new Fairfield Adult Medical Clinic opened its doors in 2010, as did the Vallejo Medical Clinic. The Vacaville Medical and Dental Clinics opened in 2012.
