In 1948, the World Health Organization defined health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” WHO published further clarifications in 1986, citing health as “a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.”

This means that health helps support an individual’s function in wider society, rather than an end in itself. A healthful lifestyle provides the means to lead a full life with meaning and purpose.

Going back 60 years to humble beginnings, Mee Memorial Healthcare System has long been a trusted foundation of our rural community in South Monterey County. We have always held a vision to promote health and well-being — but in the context of helping our neighbors to thrive, not just survive.

MMHS’s highest priority is to serve the healthcare needs of our valued community. This includes offering an extensive array of services with a commitment to the highest possible standards, the best available technology and a highly skilled healthcare team.
