The Chico Community Hospital was founded in 1967 by a group of doctors who left Enloe Hospital due to the business and political climate Enloe. Until CCH opened, Enloe was the sole provider of hospital services in the area. CCH was located in the building that now houses the Enloe Prompt Care clinic in north Chico.
Although unsubstantiated, it is rumored that CCH began experiencing financial problems in the late 80s.
In the late 90s, UC Davis Medical Center approached the CCH board about possibly acquiring the facility to open a satellite clinic. The offer prompted Enloe Hospital to propose their own buy out of the facility. Enloe staged a public battle against bringing UC Davis into the area while all sides were negotiating. Enloe eventually won the bid.
After absorbing the CCH organization, Enloe closed the hospital portion of the CCH facility.
