It may have a new name, but El Camino Los Gatos is still a community hospital
The Mercury News

On Dec. 17, 1962, Roberta “Robbie” Smith was admitted to Community Hospital of Los Gatos, where she gave birth to a daughter she named Sarah. It was undoubtedly a big day for Smith, but it was also an important day for Los Gatos, because it was the first day the hospital was open for business. Now, just over 50 years later, the hospital–located at 855 Pollard Road in the center of a triangle between Los Gatos, Saratoga and Campbell–is known as El Camino Hospital Los Gatos. And boy, have things changed since that first baby girl was delivered.
