About Palomar Health
Palomar Health is the largest public health care district in California, serving communities in an 850-square-mile area, and home to North County San Diego's only designated trauma center covering more than 2,200 square miles of South Riverside and North San Diego Counties. Understanding the need to leverage the high costs associated with provision of health care services throughout the District, Palomar Health has focused on building a coordinated system of care that concentrates technology, expertise and volume in specific locations where high competency can be maintained. As such, we currently have a delivery system anchored by three hospitals, two which provide an array of acute care services and one specialty hospital focused on rehabilitation, behavioral health and radiation therapy, along with an onsite infusion center.
The centerpiece of the health system is Palomar Medical Center Escondido. The 740,000-foot 11-story facility opened in 2012. The medical center features 288 private single-patient rooms, 44 emergency and trauma rooms and 11 operating rooms. The 56-acre campus will expand in phases - up to double its current size - to meet the developing needs of North San ...Diego County's growing community. In addition to three hospitals, Palomar Health offers home health care, surgery, skilled nursing, ambulatory care, behavioral health services, wound health, and community health education programs.
