The original main hospital in King City was a 22-bed single-story facility built in 1941 by Dr. L. M. Andrus. In 1962, George L. Mee's son donated proceeds from a cattle sale as seed money for a new hospital facility. Mee was a prominent and colorful cattle rancher known for his enormous ranch and generosity toward community endeavors. Today, the hospital is a 123-bed, two-story, full-service, not-for-profit healthcare facility with centers and clinics in Paso Robles, King City, Greenfield and Soledad. All patients coming to any Mee facility receive highly personalized care by knowledgeable and professional staffs and physicians that use state-of-the-art medical technology.
