The Desert Healthcare District consists of seven zones covering the Coachella Valley. Each zone is represented by a Director on the Desert Healthcare District and Foundation Board. On December 21, 2021, the Board voted and approved the "Hummingbird" map (linked here), completing a public process that began in the fall 2021 to redraw the District to reflect population changes based on the 2020 U.S. Census.

In 2018, prompted by a growing requirement for California’s special districts, municipalities and other government agencies to improve diverse representation, the Desert Healthcare District took on a zoning process that included multiple public hearings and map presentations. A five-zone map was approved that summer, moving the District from at-large to zone-based Board member elections. Following voters’ approval in November 2018 to expand the District east of Cook Street, a rezoning process got underway to create seven zones covering the entire Coachella Valley.
