50 years ago, few could have imagined the rural flower fields and avocado orchards of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista would grow into the major population and commerce centers they are today. From its beginnings, Tri-City Medical Center has mirrored that growth. 2011 is Tri-City’s 50th anniversary of providing world-class healthcare to the citizens of North San Diego County. Tri-City is a nationally recognized hospital with a world-renowned medical and professional staff, state-of-the art technology, and award-winning, compassionate patient care.
Tri-City Medical Center begins the next 50 years with major enhancements. The Cardiovascular Health Institute is open and providing the most advanced heart care available from comprehensive heart risk screenings to ‘beating heart’ surgery. The Orthopedic and Cancer Institutes will open in 2011. The hospital has received numerous national and regional accreditations. Tri-City is a Joint Commission Accredited Hospital meeting the highest national standards for healthcare quality. It is the first nationally accredited Chest Pain Center in San Diego County and is a San Diego County Designated Heart Attack (STEMI) Receiving Center. It has received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers and the Gold “Plus” Award for Stroke Care from the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
Tri-City is home to nationally certified Pulmonary and Cardiac Rehabilitation Centers accredited by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The American College of Radiology awarded national certification to the radiology center. And, the clinical laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.
In 2008, the hospital opened the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine with certified physicians, nurses, and technicians. The medical director is the only nationally certified wound specialist in San Diego County and one of only three statewide. In 2010, the Center was named Wound Care Facility of the Year.
Tri-City offers a wide array of quality services ranging from maternity and advanced neonatal care, (the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the largest in North County and the only NICU with a board-certified neonatologist on duty around the clock), to orthopedics, neurology, and advanced interventional radiology with state-of-the-art imaging equipment like the 64-Slice Lightspeed CT Scanner. In total, Tri-City has physicians representing 60 specialties and sub-specialties.
One of the most exciting recent technological additions is the CyberKnife – a
revolutionary radiosurgery system that lets doctors treat tumors anywhere in the body, even those once characterized as inoperable.
In 2009, Tri-City began a bedside bar-coding initiative, which has been shown to reduce medication errors by more than 80%.
Tri-City has the second busiest emergency room in the county treating about 70,000 residents annually. It remains at the forefront in planning for regional disaster response and in recent disasters served as a community medical receiving center for ill and injured patients.
Tri-City’s mission is to advance the health and wellness of those it serves. The two-year-old Tri-City Wellness Center in Carlsbad approaches health and fitness from a medical perspective. The 58,000 sq. ft. facility offers a complete array of health and fitness programs and has been named the best gym in San Diego County two years running on the 10News.com A*List. On the same campus in Carlsbad, the Medical Office Building is now open housing the second location of Occupational Medicine and the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. Tri-City has two locations for Occupational Medicine because the hospital understands a healthy workforce is necessary to achieve a healthy bottom line.
Trust the caring hands of Tri-City Medical Center for comprehensive, advanced medicine close to home.
