Hi Diane,
I came across your question which was posted quite awhile ago and it appears that you have already been given complete information regarding the local hospitals HOWEVER there is a service that most people don't think about until there is an emergancy. There is a medical helicopter service called PHI Cares and their yearly fee is only around $50.00 a year (that was the cost about 4 years ago when I joined). There is a helicopter pad just below Arnold for pick up service. If you ever have to use a helicopter service (which many have to be flown to Stanford or Davis) the fee is in the thousands and insurance typically does not cover this charge. This is soooo well worth their small yearly fee. If you call them they will connect you with a current group.....my group is thru Century 21-Sierra Properties. If you want to contact me I can give you more information and details......

There are two major hospital options for Murphys. One is Adventist Health System Sonora Regional Hospital in Sonora - about a 30 minute drive and that is in the next county over - Toulemne. I hope I spelled that right. The second hospital is Mark Twain Hospital in San Andreas which is in Calaveras County and about 30 minutes the other direction. I like to use the community walk in centers, especially the new one in Angels Camp through Adventist Health System Sonora Regional- located at Highway 4 and 49. The doctors there are great and its usually a quick turn around. Also, there are several doctors in the area that are close by, mine is in Murphys. There are also a few full service fire stations in the immediate area for quick response and emergency medical.

The nearest hospital to Murphys is in the next county over, and even with that, it's a good thirty minute drive with no traffic. At least it has maternity services. The hospital in Calaveras County--supposedly a Catholic hospital-- no longer offers maternity services and has no plans to. This may or may not be important to you. The hospital in Calaveras County is also about a thirty minute drive from Murphys.

Hi! Mark Twain St. Josephs in San Andreas is a wonderful hospital. I had my second son there. It was a wonderful experience. The staff is wonderful.

Hi - We have excellent Medical Care here in Angels Camp/Murphys area......Aside from very good quality walk-in clinics in Angels Camp there are two hospitals very close by. One, the Sonora General is only a couple of years old and specializes in Cancer care and Cardiac care.....But we don' t have a Home Depot.......Yet!

The only hospital in Calaveras County is Mark Twain/ St. Joseph Hospital in San Andreas approximately 20-30 minutes away. Tuolumne General is in Sonora and about the same distance.
