  • About us

    At Palomar Health, we are the largest public health system in Southern California and the only designated Level II Trauma in North County San Diego, CA. We have been serving sunny San Diego's inland North County communities for more than 50 years and were recently named as the first California Member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. While we may care for our patients using the latest in medical technology, our bedside manner is always time-honored human understanding. We are at the forefront of technology, but haven't lost touch with what health care is all about: you, your family and friends. As the largest hospital district in Southern California, we are also one of the most diverse. From our state-of-the-art Cardiac Care and Rehabilitation Facilities and a busy Trauma center to Home Healthcare, we deliver a full spectrum of health services to meet the needs of every member in our community. In addition to hospitals - Palomar Medical Center Escondido, Palomar Medical Center Poway and Palomar Medical Center Downtown Escondido, we offer health services through affiliated medical groups, skilled nursing facilities and Palomar Health Expresscare clinics.
