Company History

In 1997, John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek merged with Mt. Diablo Medical Center in Concord to form the John Muir/Mt. Diablo Health System. The creation of the John Muir/Mt. Diablo Health System ensured that comprehensive, high-quality health care services remained in the community and that important decisions about the community's health care needs continued to be made locally. In 2006, the organization was rebranded to become John Muir Health.
