Hospital representatives said that El Camino has pursued a tradition of innovation and cutting edge care from the very beginning.
In 1966 — five years after its grand opening — the San Jose Mercury News wrote an article on the hospital with a headline proclaiming that El Camino was "Going All Out for Automation," and in 1971 the hospital formed a partnership with Lockheed to create what it says is the very first medical information system in the world.
In 1980, El Camino's operating room was named the most technologically advanced surgical suite in the area, and Popular Science identified it as the "most technologically advanced hospital in the world" in a 2009 issue.
El Camino Hospital's Mountain View campus is located at 2500 Grant Road. More information on the celebration can be found online at www.elcaminohospital.org/50th.
