Many Strengths. One Mission. 

It’s the creative thinking, unique perspectives and individual dreams of many that continue to help us transform the world and shatter barriers in the healthcare industry. As a private health sciences university, we are working together to learn, explore and find life-saving treatments to help our local neighborhoods and the underserved populations around the world. There’s no limit to what we can do.

Story of Loma Linda

Loma Linda was established on Aug. 26, 1905 as Loma Linda Sanitarium thanks to the visionary efforts of Seventh-day Adventist pioneer, Ellen G. White. Over the past 100 years, we have always focused on our mission “to continue the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus Christ” and applying whole person care to every patient.

We continue to expand our healthcare treatments around the world and in our communities. By the year 2020, we will welcome an exciting addition to our campus with a new 16-story adult hospital and expanded children’s hospital thanks to Vision 2020: The Campaign for a Whole Tomorrow.
