Improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve

The Board of Directors have a vision of a healthy Morongo Basin!

Believing that healthy behaviors are important to residents of all ages for quality of life, the healthcare District seeks to address health and wellness issues for children, adolescents, parents, adults, and seniors in realizing its mission to improve the health and wellness of the Morongo Basin.

A healthy Morongo Basin means that all members of the community have access to basic healthcare resources, health education and activities related to nutrition and food choice, physical activities, and social support for the family.

Towards implementing that vision and encouraging healthy behaviors, one of the initiatives the healthcare District is focused on is improving access to ambulatory care services such as primary medicine for adults and children, preventive medicine, and dental care. Through the services of the Morongo Basin Community Health Centers, patients are offered access to a growing list of specialty services.


Ms. Schmall has been with the Morongo Basin Healthcare District over five years, most recently in the position of Chief Operating Officer. She has more than 25 years of healthcare leadership experience, including serving human resources positions at Hi-Desert Medical Center from 1993 to 2006 and again in 2015 to 2016. She holds a Masters of Management degree from the University of Phoenix.
